Hala Barghout, UAE, BSC Nutrition and Dietetics;
“When you fast, your fluid intake is reduced significantly throughout the day which will affect your organs from functioning properly. It is therefore crucial that you replenish your electrolytes that have been lost from fasting or exercising before breaking your fast, and hydrate as naturally as possible afterwards to avoid dehydration which is where Vita Coco Coconut Water comes in perfectly!”
VITA COCO FASTING FACTS
100% Natural: From the coconut to the carton, Vita Coco Coconut Water is a natural and refreshing way to break your fast. We pick, crack and pack the coconuts straight from source with nothing artificial added…it’s just like sticking a straw straight in a coconut!
Plenty of potassium: Coconut water is rich in potassium which helps keeps the body hydrated and recover quicker after a long day of fasting, making it the perfect go-to at Iftar.
Naturally packed with electrolytes: Your body loses electrolytes throughout the day so it’s important to keep electrolyte levels topped up! Vita Coco is highly nutritious with all five of the essential electrolytes, sodium, potassium, chloride, calcium and magnesium naturally occurring in our coconut water, helping the body replenish its lost electrolytes at the break of fast.
Zero fat and low calories: Many fasters are prone to weight gain during the holy month due to over eating fatty foods after blood-sugar levels drop. Vita Coco has less sugar than traditional carbonated and soft drinks and more Vitamin C and less sugar than orange juice making it an ideal option to kick off your Iftar healthily and help keep those sudden surges in blood-sugar levels at bay.
Replaces lost fluids effectively and fast: In Dubai’s scorching heat, the body is prone to losing lots of fluids and even more so during the Ramadan fasting hours. According to published studies, Vita Coco Coconut Water replaces lost fluids as effectively as sports drinks whilst containing only natural ingredients and without the added sugar, making it a healthy, natural choice to break your fast with.
WHY IS VITA COCO COCONUT WATER BETTER FOR THIRST INSTEAD OF OTHER RAMADAN DRINKS?
• Unlike Vita Coco Coconut Water, other known Ramadan drinks can contain up to 2 x more sugar which could result in unnecessary added calories and sugar surges
• Many Ramadan drinks are often full of sugar and have very few hydrating properties
