WHY IT ROCKS FOR YOUR BODY:
1. Coconut water or “nature’s powerade” is a natural isotonic drink. The flesh and liquid are loaded with health benefits and adding this baby to your smoothie you will feel a burst of energy, clarity of mind and re-vitalised! Coconut water is one of the best hydrators and fluid replacers in the world. It is anti-bacterial and anti-fungal and completely sterile – the husk serves as a natural filter. So crack it open and let the holy water flow!
