Getting my electrolytes in at Jax Veg Fest (vegan outdoor festival) yesterday! Hydration is KEY to healing and coconuts are wonderful for that! Coconuts are rich in potassium, sodium, calcium and magnesium.
💚 DID YOU KNOW…..
🥥Helps replenish Electrolytes – Because coconut water is high in potassium, and such a great electrolyte replacement, it has even been used for IV hydration in certain emergency situations.
🥥Lowers high blood pressure – The potassium in coconut water counteracts the effect of sodium in the body, helping lower blood pressure.
🥥Reduces cholesterol – Researchers believe that the benefit of potassium, calcium and magnesium content in coconut water, all electrolytes that play a role in helping maintain heart health can help reduce cholesterol levels.
🥥Cleanses & detoxifies – Coconut water contains a similar electrolyte profile to human blood, making it an ideal beverage to replace fluids and help remove toxins from the body. Remember, hydration & elimination are KEY in detoxification!
🥥Reduces stress & muscle tension – Some of the electrolytes found in coconut water, specifically calcium and magnesium, may help with stress and muscle tension. Adequate calcium intakes may help keep our all our muscles relaxed. Magnesium has been nicknamed the “relaxation” mineral. Its primary function is in the parasympathetic nervous system, the part of the nervous system that helps us relax. It also helps with the formation of serotonin, the “feel good hormone.”
💚🥥💚🥥 Get your hydration in with fresh coconuts! If you can’t find them fresh, always look for brands that are refrigerated without any preservatives in them…it should only say “coconut water” on the ingredients list.🌴
