My son just got over the stomach flu, and he lost a LOT of fluids. Rather than reaching for Pedialyte, we bought him one of his favorite drinks- coconut water! •
Coconut water naturally contains five main electrolytes: sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus. In fact, coconut water contains more potassium than is found in one banana or 15 sports drinks.
So whether you’re rehydrating from a workout or getting over the stomach bug, coconut water is an excellent way to hydrate without consuming added sugars and dyes.
