Cocozia Review

As a health coach, I get asked a lot what brand of coconut water I like best, or either what I like to hydrate with other than plain water…My answer, Cocozia Coconut Water.

I was simply thrilled when Cocozia shot me an email asking me if I would like to review their coconut water

HYDRATION
Pure and simple, hydration is essential to life.
COCOZIA® Coconut Water is exactly that: a pure, natural hydration source containing not only water from the green coconut, but essential electrolytes too.
ELECTROLYTES
COCOZIA® contains a natural abundance of potassium and magnesium, as well as other electrolytes. Electrolytes are directly involved with body hydration and muscle function. Better to get yours from a natural source like COCOZIA® than from a sugary, synthetic sports drink alternative.
COCONUT WITH A STRAW
That’s how they drink coconut water in the islands, but fortunately, COCOZIA® has made it a little easier for you here! All the natural elements and flavor, without the need to carry a coconut to your work-out!

I’m a big fan of coconut water! I think its vital for people who workout hard and run!

I’m also a health nut, so the fact that it is 100% coconut water AND organic, makes it even better.

I didn’t get to run any long runs with coconut water this time, due to a slight setback in running from an injury, but I definitely took it with me on short runs, HIIT workouts, and cycling.

One reason I like coconut water, is because if I workout really hard, and gulp down some water, I’m not getting any electrolytes put back in me…so with CW, I’m able to replenish those and not have to worry about my stomach hurting or feeling as fatigued. I’m also really picky about my coconut water. Most coconut waters I’ll get, taste a little off or a bit funky. But with Cocozia, I feel like it tastes perfect. So thanks, Cocozia, for making us excellent coconut water!

My Favorite Drinks Under 60 Calories

Good morning, y’all!

I really wanted to share my favorite drinks today because I feel like not too many people know how good they are…so with that said, here they are!

https://i1.wp.com/www.zevia.com/sites/default/themes/zevia_us/logo.png

Zevia is by far my favorite. They are simply the best and I wish there were Zevia vending machines everywhere!

They have tons of flavors to choose from…and if you’re someone who loves to drink carbonated sodas but wants to avoid all the high fructose corn syrup and sugar highs to lows, and still wants a sweet taste…here ya go! Thanks Zevia for making that possible for us!

LEMON LIME TWIST is my favorite Smile

Onto the next brand…

Raise your hand if you love sparkling water? *Raises hand

I DO!

I love, love it! I have been getting La Croix for the past couple of weeks and am enjoying it way too much. The flavors I’ve tried (Lime, Orange, & Lemon) have been really good. I can’t wait to try all the flavors.

There is nothing artificial in these cans, so no worries! You’ll save calories and your health sticking with a drink like this one.

The next drink does have calories, but its very low and great for those who workout and sweat a lot.

Vita Coco Coconut Water

I’ve been drinking coconut water for a very long time. Vita Coco is my favorite. I love drinking it after a hard run to replenish all the electrolytes that I used. For one 11.1 ounces you drink, its only 60 calories, which isn’t that bad. And its 100% natural, so the sugar content isn’t harmful to you.

They also have a few different flavors, so if you don’t like the coconut taste, you have options.

Questions:

  • What is your favorite drink?
  • Do you like coconut water?

I’m a big fan of coconut water! I think its vital for people who workout hard and run!

I’m also a health nut, so the fact that it was 100% coconut water AND organic, made it even better.

I’ve been posting it here and there on my blog the last couple of weeks, reviewing it. I’ve been testing it out on my runs and both my parents love it as well.

We are coconut water fanatics.

I really hope I see this product in stores like Whole Foods, Publix, Earth Fare, The Fresh Market (all my favorite places, obviously)

Why Do I Drink Coconut Water?

Last year when I started running hard for Cross Country, running long runs, training for my half marathon, etc., my stomach would hurt a lot. I kept researching why, and found out why when Christina had the same problem! NOT ENOUGH ELECTROLYTES! I was drinking tons of water but no electrolytes and without electrolytes, you can not perform and feel as good after on your workouts/runs.

So, I’m a health nut, as I mentioned above, and am not about to drink Gatorade, yuck. So, already a fan of coconut water, I made it a staple in my house. We usually always have coconut water on hand during training season. 262677_398359616909699_724523256_n

I drink coconut water after my runs now and my stomach never hurts! Electrolytes are so important! Especially if you are doing long distance running!

So, with that said, you should definitely remember to drink more than water. I highly recommend Cocozia because it is an organic coconut water and you can be 100% sure you’re drinking the right stuff!

Disclosure: Cocozia asked me and sent me their product to review, but all opinions are my own.


And I wanted to share my salad from last night…it was so pretty!
