Coconut Water as a Hangover Cure?

Hello friends,

Apologies for not posting more. We are going to start having blog postings much more regularly, including some surprises and videos!

We'd like to share this blog with you today, written by Lizzi Loraine, who recommends O.N.E. Coconut Water.

Reprinted from: http://www.coconut-water-products.com/2009/08/can-coconut-water-help-cure-a-hangover/

Coconut water is the liquid found inside young green coconuts and differs from coconut milk. As the coconut matures, this liquid gets absorbed into the nut’s flesh. Coconut water is a popular drink in tropical regions, such as Tropical Asia and Trinidad and Tobago. It is found and sold in Central America on strategic highway stops and beaches. In this region coconut water is called “agua de pipa.”

The various minerals and healthy bacterial present in coconut water enable our body to recover from rigorous exercise, making this drink far superior to other sports drinks. Fresh cocunut water also helps in digestion, optimizes muscle performance, boosts our immune system and blood circulation, besides helping maintain body temperature.

Coconut water: good remedy for dehydration

Dehydration is quite common after you have partied all night or drank too much. Since alcohol is a diuretic, i.e. something that makes you urinate, you need to hydrate your body through the consumption of a lot of fluids. Coconut water is one of the most effective ways of rehydrating the body. Consumption of a large quantity of alcohol in a dehydrated state results in a hangover. The main symptoms of a hangover are headache, nausea and vomiting. And the best remedy is to consume liquids with electrolytes.

Too much alcohol also has a negative impact on several of your body parts. Your kidneys, liver, stomach and small intestines fall prey to the adverse impact of alcohol and result in problems such as electrolyte imbalances, gastrointestinal disturbances, disruption of sleep, among other things. The need to quickly restore the body to optimal hydration is therefore irrefutable.

Coconut water, although a little known cure for hangovers, has several other beneficial properties:

* it is a natural isotonic beverage because of the significant amount of electrolytes it contains

* improves our digestive system

* encourages bowel movement

* helps in prevention of bacterial, viral and fungal infections

* keeps the body cool while maintaining adequate temperature

* aids in healthy functioning of the thyroid

* has a cleansing effect on the whole endocrine system

* clears your complexion

* is even safe for infants

Lizzi Loraine is a writer and writes for health magazines. She suggests O.N.E.™ Coconut Water for hangover cure. It has no additives and has ability to hydrate you body.

Hi Lizzie,

Can I suggest elete, a sports drink concentrate created specially for optimum hydration, which is 100% natural as very good for hangover relief.

It is derived from the water of the Great Salt Lake in Utah and contains four electrolytes (magnesium, sodium, potassium and chloride) plus 70 other trace and ultra-trace minerals.

An independent peer reviewed study indicated that when using elete, 40% less water is needed to hydrate properly.

Please take a look at our website if you would like to learn more at www.eletewater.co.uk .

I have to declare an interest as I am a Director of MRI (UK) Ltd, which owns the European distribution rights for elete.

I would be delighted to have some samples sent to you to try if you would like. Just e-mail me with your details at adrian@eletewater.co.uk

I hope to hear from you

All the best

Adrian Shaw
