We love receiving testimonials like this!

Dear O.N.E.,

My name is Tom Crooks and I am captain of a paintball team that is growing
quickly. We are the Oompa Loompa Chuckers based out of Southeastern, CT, USA.
For the past year and a half, we have been buying O.N.E. and clearing the shelves of
it and spending roughly $35-$75 on your product because it works!

As being a highly experienced local team traveling throughout New England, we
have been dominating local tournaments and would like to thank you for your
unbelievable product. We have played in the worst of conditions and we have
still performed at the peak of competition thanks to the hydration, nutrition,
and the several other benefits of your product. We have realized that coconut
water has helped us not only in hydration but as well as focus on and off the
field. We used to drink energy drinks such as Red Bull, Rockstar, Monster, etc.
These drinks made us lose focus, would in fact dehydrate us and feel as if
we have ingested cement by the end of the day. Our age varies from 17-26 and
half of us, including myself, are full time students.

Sincerely, Tom Crooks- Oompa Loompa Chuckers

Secrets of Celebrity Fitness – Five simple steps to look like Katy Perry

Replace sweet drinks and diet drinks with water… lots of water. Your body is two-thirds water and you should try to replenish it daily to keep yourself alkaline. I tell all my patients to drink at least 2/3 ounces of water per body pound. This helps keep your metabolism up, is the best detox anyone can do, and also helps to reduce body pains. Stress, food additives and preservatives are toxic to your body and lead to acidity. Acidity is very detrimental to all your body functions, including your immune system. If you don’t like water alone, try adding some lemon or drinking coconut water. Coconut water is loaded with electrolytes and minerals, has about 16 total calories, and is fat-free. In fact, one cup of coconut water contains more electrolytes than most sports drinks and more potassium than a banana. There are many benefits to drinking water, but I do have one warning: do not drink more than 3/4 oz of water per body pound because it can dilute your electrolytes.

No More Perma-Sore!

No More Perma-Sore!

I've been a figure skater for 24 of my almost 42 years -- I started when I was 9, quit when I was 16 and started again at 25. I currently compete against other adults and am the reigning U.S. adult national bronze medalist in the Championship Intermediate-Novice Ladies division. For most of the adult portion of my skating career, I've suffered from what a call "perma-sore" -- I just don't recover from muscle fatigue and soreness the way I did in my teens, and it was a rare occasion when no body part was in pain.

Up until a few months ago, my drink of choice while on the ice had been plain ol' water. It did the job it was intended to do, which was basically to quench my thirst. Then one day, a friend mentioned on Twitter something about coconut water and exercise. Curious, I asked her what coconut water was, and from that point on I was Googling articles about coconut water and researching all the brands. Each touted more potassium than a banana and more electrolytes/less sugar (none) than a sports drink, and so began my mission to find this magic elixir.

I tried 'em all, and my absolute favorite is O.N.E. (One Natural Experience) with a Splash of Pink Guava. But it's not just because of the awesome taste, it's because I don't suffer from "perma-sore" anymore. In fact, I don't suffer from any "sore" anymore! I don't know if it's the potassium or the electrolytes -- it could be little elves, for all I care -- but ever since I incorporated O.N.E. coconut water into my skating regimen, I am pain-free.

I guess this is the part when I'm supposed to say "individual results may vary." But, hey, it works for me, and if it doesn't work for you, the worst that will happen is you drank something yummy and good for you. I just wish I'd found it sooner -- might have saved me several trips to the chiropractor!

Our First Guest Blog!

Hello friends!
We have been asking bloggers to be guest bloggers here on our website. We have always liked the blog: so we invited the blogger to share her thoughts with us, and all of you. We hope you enjoy!

#6O.N.E. Coconut Water
**Sponsored post**

Most people are appalled with my habit of adopting the "elf diet:" Hostess cupcakes for breakfast, peanut M&Ms for lunch and Pop-tarts for dinner. When I had my over-priced membership to an "athletic club," I devoted more time thinking of reasons NOT to go to the gym than I actually spent AT the gym.

Granted, every single girl has different prerogatives. Mine happen to include expensive Italian shoes, and not necessarily my physical well-being. My poor health sometimes doesn't even make it on my list of priorities let alone, and well, left alone at the bottom of one.

Certainly, single girls like to count calories, but with a penchant for fake cooking, take-out meals, eating over the sink or having chips and guacamole for dinner, we tend to overlook the fact that our only serving of fruit for the week was a measly piece of lychee in our martini.

After suffering through the hangover of the century two months ago, I decided to be more concerned about my entire body and not just my liver, which explains my latest obsession with O.N.E. Coconut Water.

According to our friends at O.N.E., coconut water is an "all-natural hangover elixir." Not only is drinking 11-ounces of coconut water comparable to drinking an entire LITER of water for hydration purposes, coconut water controls vomiting and replaces lost electrolytes from vomiting. (This is super helpful when even the thought of tequila makes you queasy.)

Reasons why single girls like O.N.E. Coconut Water:

- O.N.E. Coconut Water is a low calorie, NON-FAT beverage. (You know how single girls feel about calorie counting. And fat.)

- O.N.E. Coconut Water relieves urinary problems, kills intestinal worms and breaks up kidney stones. (Who needs a Master Cleanse when you have coconut water?)

- O.N.E. Coconut Water is a natural alternative to Viagra. (Um, score! Pun intended.)

- O.N.E. Coconut Water may help encourage smoother and clearer skin. (Age spots, acne and wrinkles, good bye!)

- O.N.E. Coconut Water has more potassium than a banana. (Perfect because I never really cared for bananas, and potassium is great for your heart.)

- O.N.E. Coconut Water contains A LOT of vitamins. (Natural energy booster, anyone?)

- O.N.E. Coconut Water is an all-natural isotonic beverage and contains a bunch of electrolytes. (Translation: it increases metabolism. Actual translation: it helps with [relationship] weight loss.)

- O.N.E. Coconut Water comes in a cute, eco-friendly container that fits nicely in the cup holder in my car. (Great for those mornings when you're hungover and dragging ass.)

With so many benefits of drinking O.N.E. Coconut Water, who knew it would be this easy to adopt a healthier lifestyle - and in a cardboard box to boot? This single girl is officially a convert, but she's not giving up her cupcakes or Pop-tarts anytime soon.

Excerpt on Coconut Water, from Austin News, Channel 8

With more than $4 billion in annual sales, sports drinks have become a staple of American lives. Now, a new player on the market may be stealing all of the thunder, celebrities and cash.

The new, en Vogue sports drink is coconut water.

A United Nations study found it has the same five electrolytes found in human blood. Gatorade only has two.

Tanya Roller is a health counselor at Daylight Wellness in Orlando, Florida.

"Commercial energy drinks usually have dyes in them, which can be neurotoxins and they're extremely loaded with refined sugar," she said.

The federal government said Gatorade has less than 5 grams of sugar for every 100 grams.

Coconut water has less than 3 grams for every 100 grams.

If you're the partying type, experts say coconut water is an excellent cure for hangovers, for all of the reasons mentioned.

All told, sales of coconut water in the U.S. cleared $50 million last year alone.

Nuts for Coconuts!
by ashley.eaton, July 20, 2010 |

Loaded with protein, calcium, phosphate, magnesium, potassium and vitamin C. We are going nuts for coconuts all over the store! Coconut milk, coconut milk yogurt, coconut milk ice cream coconut creamers and of course fresh, young coconuts and the prized electrolyte-balancing coconut water they provide.

For an all-natural, thirst-quenching experience, there’s no one thing you can say about O.N.E. Coconut Water. It just has too much going for it! O.N.E. – which stands for One Natural Experience – is prized among many of its consumers for its energizing and electrolyte replenishing benefits. Coconut water is rich in calcium, phosphate, magnesium, sodium and it even has more potassium than its tropical brother the banana. In fact, coconut water was used in World War II and the War in Vietnam as an intravenous solution for wounded soldiers on the battlefield. Talk about staying in the game, huh? It’s no wonder why all-natural athletes chose to drink O.N.E. Coconut Water over competing sports drinks.

Not to be mistaken with coconut milk, coconut nectar, and definitely not a coconut cream pie, coconut water is the liquid inside young green coconuts. It possesses a mildly sweet taste. O.N.E. 100% Coconut Water contains only 60 calories a serving and absolutely no chemicals, preservatives, GMO’s, added sugars or fat.

O.N.E. Active is available as well in its single serving boxes featuring the flavors of lemon-lime, grape berry, and cranberry grapefruit for 40 calories a drink. To learn more about O.N.E. Coconut Water, visit its website – which provides nutritional information, fun historical facts, and even recipes – at

Here’s a little-known factoid: Did you know you can buy coconut water at McDonald’s in Brazil? That’s right. Catering towards South American demand, the fast-food chain known as a pioneer of supersized soda cups is now serving one of the purest beverages born of the earth. How refreshing is that?
