Here’s what makes this beverage super hydrating:
Coconut water is excellent for hydrating. One study found that coconut water did a better job at replenishing fluids than sports drinks and water. This is because coconut water contains an ideal amount of potassium, sodium, and sugar. These all help with your bodies fluid balance.
Watermelon is actually 92% water and the rest is carbohydrates. It’s also full of vitamins A and C both of which helps keep the skin looking healthy and hydrated. It’s an excellent source of electrolytes making it the perfect fruit for hydration.
Cucumber has the most water content of any fruit and veggie at 97%. Cucumber water is especially hydrating and provides vitamins like B5 and K plus antioxidants.
This hydrating drink is a much better substitute for soda and other sugary drinks. Whip it up next time you need something to quench that thirst of yours.
