Sports drinks are designed for rapid absorption to deliver water, electrolytes and energy (sugar) into the body. These beverages are intended to prevent dehydration, improve recovery time and maintain energy. King Coconut Water is an isotonic, ready-to-drink hydration beverage with all these benefits naturally in place. King Coconut water is a healthier option than most Sports Drinks because King Coconut water does not contain artificial or added sugar, chemicals, stabilizers or colors. King Coconut water is not artificially carbonated, making it much easier to consume without feeling bloated or nauseated. The average sports drink contains up to 60 grams of sugar per can. That’s the sugar equivalent of eating 6 typical chocolate chip cookies.
