Celebrities set a trend for tropical wonder drink

5th Sep 2010

Celebrities have become the latest fans of what has been labelled the ‘Fluid of Life’.  More commonly known as coconut water, this tropical beverage is recognised as one of the most refreshing and healthy drinks provided by nature.

Naturally sweet, virtually fat free, and with zero cholesterol, the drink has proved immensely popular with stars from across the celebrity spectrum.  Those that hanker for the tropical taste include Madonna, Courteney Cox, Demi Moore, Matthew McConaughey, Gossip Girl’s Ed Westwick and Jessica Simpson.

There is more to coconut water than just great taste though - the drink also has impressive nutritional credentials with a high electrolyte content that helps keep the body hydrated.  A great fatigue fighter with more nutrients than milk and fewer calories than orange juice, it’s no wonder that coconut water is proving so popular.

Organic food brand Biona has just launched organic coconut water in a can, made from young, green and organic coconuts.  With this delicious drink you can stay energised, hydrated and even imagine yourself on a tropical island beach to escape the winter blues!
