Coconut Water v. Sports Drinks: Which Wins?!


By Dr. Phoenyx Austin

I love infographics, and I regularly come across health-related infographics that offer great fitness and nutritional advice. So I’ve now decided to start sharing these infographics on my site under the subcategory of Fit Bit, or valuable bits of fitness/nutritional info that I think are perfectly delivered in infographics rather than full-on blog post articles. I’ll also be pinning these infographics to my Pinterest.

Now let’s get to my very first Fit Bit on coconut water.

Check out the infographic below, and also be sure to check out my recent post on my Top 4 Coconut Water Picks.

  1. O.N.E. for coconut water, but they are wayyyy too costly so I tend to go with whatever cheap brand they sell at the local asian grocery, making sure it’s water NOT juice!!! And good ol’ original Gatorade for sports drinks.
