Make sure you wear green so you don't get pinched. Go out to the bars, throw your drink in the air- Cheers! It's St. Patty's Day. Even if you're not Irish, it's an excuse to celebrate and party.
You've had a good time enjoying the holiday festivities, and now, the dread morning after, you might need a little help. Your head feels like a leprechaun is banging you with a sledge hammer; your mouth is as dry as when the dentist suctions your mouth; your body feels like it's on a swing, and your mind is wondering what to do about it.
If you're hungover -a mild form of dehydration- it's your body's way of trying to process the alcohol and rid your system of it, while breaking down the alcohol in your body.
Nutritionist, Jeannette Freed, says, "The day after drinking, your body not only needs to replenish its water supply, but also its potassium and magnesium. To help restore nutrients after your night out, try drinking 100% natural coconut water-refreshing and nutritious water from inside a young, green (not brown) coconut. Natural coconut water re-hydrates your body, has more electrolytes and potassium (more potassium than bananas) than conventional sports drinks, few calories, no artificial additives, and is naturally fat-free."
Whether you've partied or not, natural coconut water hydrates you, and has many other health benefits as well.
Jeannette says, "Drinking natural coconut water helps with digestion, optimizes muscle performance (so drink it after exercising), boosts your immune system and circulation, raises your metabolism, and keeps your body at the proper temperature. Around the world, women put coconut water directly on their skin for hydration."
Even if you wear green on St. Patty's day, you might feel like you got pinched due to that morning-after-drinkin' feeling, and will need a little shamrock luck. Cure your hangover and gain other health benefits by drinking coconut water.
Drink coconut water brands such as Zico (found in your local grocery store) and you'll find yourself feeling like a pot of gold.
