Coconut Water- the new hangover cure
October 15, 2010
Going out tonight? You’ve read this just in time.
There has been a buzz over the past few months over coconut water and its health effects. A trend you say? Coconut water is sweeping mouths across the nation with its amazing effects of re-hydration. Low in sugar, FULL of electrolytes, and the best way of hydration after a night of drinking- coconut water is the best remedy for a hangover. And I do mean best.
Time Magazine reports: “10 years ago, when the U.N.’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) was granted a patent — the first ever given to a U.N. agency — for bottling coconut water in a way that preserves its nutrients, an FAO official noted that the drink contains the same five electrolytes found in human blood (Gatorade has only two). He called coconut water “the fluid of life.” Indeed, in medical emergencies, coconut water has been used intravenously when conventional hydration fluids were not available.”
So when you hit the mean streets of downtown tonight, just have one thing in mind: coconut water. You will be glad you did in the morning.
