Zico-The New Sport Drink

Updated on February 18, 2010

Cukoo For Zico Coconut Drink

I was visiting a friend today to watch a couple NFL games and as usual, we do this over a few rounds of our favorite alcoholic beverage. However, although I was feeling good enough to watch some great plays from today's NFL stars, after last night's outing, I knew I could not handle any kind of drink that was made to impare my hand eye coordination. Yeah, I was a bit hung over so I didn't want to make it any worse.  

Well, my buddy's wife who is quite the health nut offered me a glass of juice. I didn't really question what kind of juice it was but after my first sip I was hooked! I'm not saying I'm dropping my consumption of alcohol beverages because of this drink but I just may start drinking it after a night of moderate drinking and especially nights after I take a drink to many.

After that first glass, the cramps that associate the de-hydration began to disappear. I'm sure  moving around after watching an awesome play had something to do with it to.

After the games and another glass of Zico I went home to research this Zico Coconut Water and not to my surprise I found that it is actually a sports drink made of coconut water which is a natural source of nutrition, wellness, beauty and hydration. In times of famine and war, coconut water has been used as an intravenous fluid and has actually saved many lives. Well it definitely saved my Sunday morning. A wierd fact to throw at you is that Coconut water is actually the only natural substance that can be safely injected into the human blood stream.

One 11 oz glass of ZICO actually has more potassium than a banana which helps with cramps. That is 15 times more than the usual sports drink has in order to prevent cramping and speed recovery.

After researching, it has motivated me to begin a workout routine and add a glass of Zico before and after. A few other benefits of Zico include:

  • Muscle performance
  • All-natural energy
  • Weight-loss aid
  • Heart health
  • Stress reduction
  • Skin, hair & nail health
  • Alkaline balance
  • Mental acuity
  • Kidney cleansing
  • Natural hang-over cure (That's the one I needed today!)

ZICO's Natural brand is pure water from young green coconuts. The coconuts used for ZICO are harvested by hand until the water inside each coconut reaches it's highest level of potassium and the electrolytes are well balanced. An 11oz serving has only 60 calories, no added sugar and absolutely no fat. It is also very low in acidity with a high level of antioxidants.

Also, I found that Coca-Cola has a 20 percent minority stake in Zico. If Coca Cola bets on a new company, You can be sure that company is doing something right.

So, have a drink of ZICO and let me know what you think. I'm sure I'll be blogging about the effects of ZICO along with my workouts in the near future.

      I agree with Kelly! Not only does Cuckoo for Coco sound better, it's a better drink for you! If you haven't tried Vita Coco once you do you will never go back to Zico.

      This should be Cuckoo for Coco! Vita coco is SO much better than zico, and better for you. Zico is filled with unnatural ingredients. Besides, Vita coco has better flavors anyways!
