A study done last year says that coconut water can be used as a sports drink. The lead researcher of the study said that coconut water is a natural drink that has everything that an average sports drink has and more. It has 5 times more potassium than some of the popular sports drinks, and potassium helps in getting rid of muscle cramps during training or a game. Coconut water also replaces the lost fluids during exercise or a game. It gives small amounts of energy and gives a refreshing feeling.
Coconut water, in my opinion, can be a useful addition to water or a sports drink in a sportsperson’s kit.
