12 reviews before Christmas: 11) Coco water

Looking to kick start the New Year with the best of healthy intentions? Yeah, you and me both! There's something about the start of a new year that just makes you want to chuck out the old and bring in the new habits - even if it's just trying to eat more veggies or move your butt more.

I'm sure 2017 will be no different for me, but my concern is 'wellness'; taking time to care for myself better so I can be a better person all round. As we move from the food induced coma of Christmas (did I mention that it's my favourite time of year?), I'll be dusting off my juicer and getting back into healthy juicing and smoothie making.

And I have a supplement I'll be adding to my (increased) water intake too.

For a few weeks now, I have been trying Coco Minerals from nutritionist brand Proto-col. It's a natural coconut water powder, which aims to be an ultra-hydrating and refreshing drink, ideal if you enjoy intense or frequent exercise and training. 

Well, I go to the occasional yoga class or gym session. Honest.

This powder is easy to add to water or with a splash of juice and is meant to be packed full of vitamins and minerals and can help to replenish your energy levels as it contains natural fruit sugars. 

Here are some of the purported benefits of Coco Minerals: 
  • A natural isotonic, coco minerals naturally re-hydrates body with the replenishment of key electrolytes, vitamins and minerals; potassium, sodium, calcium and vitamin C.
  • A great way to rehydrate during and after sport or exercise.
  • Natural fruit sugars from coconuts provide energy by replenishing glycogen stores.
  • Potassium supports normal muscle function whilst Vitamin C works to boost immune function and energy.
  • Can help to reduce the signs of ageing, including wrinkles, fine lines and age spots.
  • Can stimulate hair growth and shine through replenishment of key nutrients.
  • Natural coconut flavour with no artificial flavourings or colourings.
  • Helps to increase the body’s metabolism and is virtually fat free!
  • Ultra-fine powder, easy to mix into shakes and smoothies.
  • Delicious and refreshing – best served cold.
​Gluten Free, Lactose Free, Dairy Free, Suitable for Vegetarians, Suitable for Vegans.

Proto-col coco minerals is available in 2 sizes:
  • 1 month supply (250g) £16.95 
  • 2 month supply (500g) £29.95

I like trying new things like this out and have enjoyed trying the sample. It's easy to add to your routine and I like knowing that I am giving myself a boost from the inside out.
