The Only Sports Drink For Tennis

We have been the biggest advocates of coconut water for many many years. It is the best sports drink for tennis. We use coconuts (oil,water, milk and flesh) for nearly everything and anything from
- Cooking oil
- Body wash
- Moisturizing cream
- Upset belly
- Thirst quencher
- Hydration Coconut water is one of Nature's perfect fluids—it is hard to say enough good things about it. It's the perfect replacement for juice, soda or sports drink.After playing tennis, practicing or training for tennis, it is the perfect way to hydrate yourself. We say its water from heaven.

If you are only training for tennis for 30 mins a day at a moderate to high intensity, water is the best way to hydrate yourself.

However, if you have been training for tennis for 60 minutes or longer, at a high intensity, then it's a good idea to drink coconut water to replenish your fluids.

Coconut water is one of the best and safest option to rehydrate yourself after tennis training. If you are prone to get an upset belly or feel bloated after drinking sports drinks, coconut water is a great alternative. It's all you need, it contains electrolytes, and is sodium enriched.

Coconut water is very similar to our own blood plasma. Because it is so sterile when it comes out of the coconut, and completely compatible with the human body.Physicians over 60 years ago have actually used coconut water as an IV fluid. This was very common practice in remote regions of the world where medical supplies were limited. If it was used intravenously, you can appreciate how safe and beneficial this natural beverage is.

Perfect Electrolyte we call it Mother Nature's Gatorade

Fresh coconut water is used to prevent dehydration from strenuous exercise, vomiting, or diarrhea. It is one of the richest natural sources of electrolytes. You lose electrolytes (especially sodium and potassium) when you sweat, which must be replenished with food and fluid intake.

Coconut water has five electrolytes your body needs:
1.Potassium: coconut water contains 295 mg, which is 15 times the amount in the average sports drink.
2.Sodium: The most important positive ion in fluid outside your cells, and also the one most depleted with exercise, as you lose sodium through sweat and urine.
3.Magnesium: important for maintaining the electrical potential of your cells, proper muscle function, and preventing calcium overload.
4.Phosphorous: Plays important roles in bone health, but also in transferring energy throughout your body, helping your muscles contract, and regulating nerve function (partners with calcium).
5.Calcium: Important for bone health (partners with phosphorous).

Coconut Water has an Abundance of Health Benefits but here a few we haven't already mentioned. It is very impressive

• Rich in natural vitamins (especially the B vitamins), minerals, and trace elements (including zinc, selenium, iodine, sulfur, and manganese). Vitamins are necessary for the enzymatic reactions your cells need in order to function.
• Helps balances blood glucose and insulin levels
• Anti-inflammatory response
• Helps regulate blood pressure
• Full of amino acids, organic acids, enzymes, antioxidants, and phytonutrients.
• Light, low calorie and nearly fat-free,
• Low in sugar, contains about a fifth of the sugar of other fruit juices eg. apple juice.
• Rich in cytokinins, or plant hormones, which have anti-aging, anti-cancer, and anti-thrombotic effects in humans.
• Has an alkalizing effect on your body, which can help balance out the body's ph levels.

So Much More Than a Sports Drink

So next time you step off the tennis court, searching for a cool, refreshing drink after a tennis workout, crack open a coconut and see why we at tennis fitness love it so much.

Of course, drinking it fresh from the coconut, as opposed to bottled, is the ultimate choice.But not always possible. So please remember to read the labels of coconut water, to make sure it's as pure and unprocessed as possible. Should read 100% coconut water.
