Coconut Water Is Sweet Hangover Relief (Health)

posted by bibleprobe(R) Homepage, Mass., 05.23.2010

Bit of bar trivia: 10 years ago, when the U.N.'s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) was granted a patent — the first ever given to a U.N. agency — for bottling coconut water in a way that preserves its nutrients, an FAO official noted that the drink contains the same five electrolytes found in human blood (Gatorade has only two). He called coconut water "the fluid of life." Indeed, in medical emergencies, coconut water has been used intravenously when conventional hydration fluids were not available.

Coconut Water Is Sweet Hangover Relief
By Charlie Duerr

Everyone has a preferred method for treating a hangover — Gatorade, greasy food, a Bloody Mary — but in my experience, none of these work particularly well. So when a bartender recently recommended that I try coconut water as a morning-after remedy, I was skeptical. However, since I'd been drinking everything else she'd put in front of me, I figured I'd give it a shot.

To my surprise, the little juice box seemed to work. I didn't like the sweet taste at first, but I felt noticeably better within an hour.

Coconut water, which is extracted from fruit too young to have formed milk, is low in calories and has no fat and a lot less sugar than most juices. But its most important attribute, at least among barflies, is that it is an excellent rehydrater.
