Dubbed ‘Mother Nature’s Sports Drink’, natural organic coconut water is not just a passing health-food craze.
A glass of pure coconut water is super hydrating thanks to its naturally occurring electrolytes, has far less calories than a commercial sports drink, is naturally fat and cholesterol free, and has more potassium than four regular bananas!
There are many coconut water brands on the supermarket shelves today, but not all are created equal. Many are loaded with sugar and added preservatives.
Vita Coco has recently made an appearance in UAE grocery aisles, and given the brand’s celebrity following, I am sure their drinks will be quite the rave here too.
Vita Coco offers natural, untreated coconut water. Here is what a carton of Vita Coco contains:
Long-time friends Michael Kirban and Ira Liran founded the Vita Coco brand in New York way back in 2004. They probably had no clue how popular their brand would become in Hollywood.
Countless cartons of Vita Coco have been sipped at the elite Fashion Weeks of the globe, and this year’s Dubai Fashion Forward event will be no exception.
“Fashion show venues are often warm and dry and with limited access to water, which increases risk of dehydration. Additional fluid can be lost through sweating due to hotter temperatures, particularly for those that are rushing around. Carry a hydrating beverage, such as Vita Coco Coconut Water with you through the day. Keep one in your bag and make sure you drink plenty before, during and after each show.” – Nutritionist Anita Bean.
Vita Coco Coconut Water is available in three re-sealable pack sizes: 330ml for on the go; 500ml, the ideal pack size for sports and 1 liter for take home consumption.
As well as the 100% natural coconut water, the range in the UAE will also include three great tasting, fruit flavors (produced by combining the 100% natural coconut water with fruit puree, keeping the natural offering):
- Vita Coco Natural Coconut Water
- Vita Coco Coconut Water with Lemonade
- Vita Coco Coconut Water with Pineapple
- Vita Coco Coconut Water with Peach & Mango
In the UAE, Vita Coco can be bought at Spinneys, Choithrams, Carrefour, Geant and many office sites, sports outlets and other leading independents including Yoga Room, Engine Health and Fitness, Jumeriah Beach Hotel and Sweatshop Studios.
