Tied One Over On New Year's Eve? Try Coconut Water + A Banana
You NEED to re-hydrate, girlfriend and get those burned up electrolytes back into your body!
Here are 2 items to zap away the cruel hang-over you still might be feeling today:
Coconut Water and a Banana.
Coconut Water is supposed to be one of the best known fluids for re-hydrating the body. And according to naturalhealthlifestyles.com, it doesn't come from the coconuts we're used to enjoying:
"Coconut water is the liquid found inside young green coconuts. Not to be confused with coconuts you see in the grocery store i.e.—the brown, hairy kind."
In addition, the article goes on to mention some really wonderful things about this most pure water:
"The water of a single coconut contains enough vitamin C to meet the daily requirements of the body. It also contains several vitamins in the B group, such as niacin, pantothenic acid, biotin, riboflavin, folic acid, and thiamin."
As far as bananas go, the fruit is loaded up with potassium to replace a night of drinking. It also restores the lost electrolytes from too much partying. A banana also protects against nausea and heartburn.
