The optimal carbohydrate content for superior hydration is 6 – 8% and most popular sports drinks are scientifically formulated to this concentration.
Coconut water on the other hand, naturally contains approximately 6% carbohydrate in its solution, making it a superior hydrating drink.
This is also one of the reasons why coconut water is commonly referred to as nature’s isotonic sports drink. It also naturally contains many electrolytes which are also formulated in sports drinks including sodium, potassium and magnesium.

Keeping that in mind, coconut water is best used:

Before training/exercise to assist with hydration and fuelling

During training/exercise for superior hydration & to provide working muscles with a source of fuel (carbohydrate)

After exercise/training for superior hydration

So don’t forget to drink some H2Coco Coconut Water before, during and after exercising endure to keep hydrated, whilst absorbing all the other benefits coconut water naturally has to offer.
