Coconut Water Crystals
We added Coconut Water Crystals to keep us hydrated!
Most of us are well aware of the dehydrating effects of flying. Dehydration occurs due to the cabin's low humidity. The humidity drops to about 10-20% (30-65% is comfortable for most people). Low humidity means that moisture evaporates very quickly from the body and causes dehydration.
Alcohol and coffee (hello red eye flights) further this problem even more. When we are dehydrated our digestion slows down, we become bloated, we are more prone to illness, we become dizzy and overall we don't feel well.
We use Coconut Water because of its excellent electrolyte content. Electrolytes are certain minerals (i.e., calcium, chloride, magnesium, potassium, sodium ions) essential to human health.
Within the body, electrolytes are dissolved in body fluids. In terms of hydration, electrolytes are responsible for directing water (and nutrients) to the areas of the body where its needed most and maintaining optimal fluid balance inside the cells.
Electrolytes support hydration of the body at the cellular level, ensuring that water is distributed and absorbed by all cells.
