Why Drink Coconut Water?
By Shannon Morehouse, MA,CHHC
As a marathon runner and a triathlete,
I rely heavily on nutrients that can keep
me healthy every day and assure me that
my workouts and races are successful.
I alternate between E-Lyte's Balanced
Electrolyte Concentrate or Harvest Bay
Organic Coconut Water when I run my
marathons and they keep me energized
for all 26.2 miles! Electrolytes are
incredibly important for anyone when
they are exercising, doing hard work,
especially when it is hot out. I often
enjoy the chocolate and coffee flavored
Harvest Bay coconut waters even when
I am not running; they are perfect
little pick-me-ups. Some of the many
additional benefits of coconut water
include: helps promote weight loss, helps
fight viruses, boosts poor circulation,
aids digestion by removing toxins,
carries nutrients and oxygen to cells, and
supports kidney and urinary health.
