Did you know that coconut water — the clear liquid inside a young coconut — is very handy to have around. Coconut water is sterile and it works extremely well as a sports/hydration drink because of its high potassium and mineral content. In fact, one cup-full of coconut water contains more electrolytes than most sports drinks and more potassium than a banana. It is also nearly isotonic to human blood and can be used as an IV hydration fluid when medical saline is unavailable.
