Coconut Water: Will the newest trend in beverages be replacing your OJ?

Did you know that coconut water is more common than orange juice in some tropical countries? Coconut water is quickly becoming the go-to hydration drink for those looking for a healthy alternative to sports drinks and who stay on top of the celebrity trends.

Coconut water is the liquid from young coconuts- think green, not brown- and the added health benefits are reportedly huge. Coconut water contains a high amount of potassium, chlorides, calcium and magnesium which are essential minerals that your body needs. These minerals also serve as electrolytes to keep you hydrated after intense physical activity or, perhaps, your big night out. While most drinks on the market are flash pasteurized, a few are available in raw form.

Is coconut water part of your health regime?
