Not drinking enough water before a morning run, sweating a ton at the gym, forgetting a water bottle to sip during spin class, and steamy temps are surefire ways to put us on a path to dehydration doom. For most average exercisers and athletes, sports drinks can actually worsen the health of most who use them. Less than one percent of those who use sports drinks actually benefit from them. Most sports drinks are loaded with things you DON’T want, like refined sugars, artificial colors, and chemicals.
Coconut water has none of the unwanted additives of sports drinks and is one of the best and safest options to rehydrate yourself after a workout. If you need the electrolytes, it will provide them. If you don’t need them, then it certainly won’t hurt you.
One study in 2007 found sodium-enriched coconut water to be as effective as commercial sports drinks for whole body rehydration after exercise, with less stomach upset.
