Love the stuff and just buy whichever one is cheapest at the time(not SoBe though). I Think another benefit that is overlooked here is the alkalizing properties of fresh coconut(and all) juice , in general. Sport's drinks and even water tend to be somewhat acidic. Alkalizing the body, as I understand, is a way to help prevent disease...

I usually drink VitaCoco. I like it because it is natural unlike Sports drinks. I prefer water though....

I love coconut water for its refreshing taste and hydrating properties, especially the high amount of potassium which is great for good heart health :)

Thank you so much for this post. I thought it was as healthy as water. Now, I am 100% certain that nothing beats water when it comes to losing weight. :)

We prefer the coconut juices containing pulp; we think the flavor is better and we enjoy munching on the little bits of coconut. Neither of our favorite brands are on your list, which are "Real" and "Amy & Brian's", and we wonder what the nutritional info is on them. Is there added sugar?

I like the coconut water in the cans, the ones in the tetra pak I think taste like plastic.
Blue monkey is my favorite

I drink VitaCoco and One. Plain no flavoring added. I love them because they are just the juice out of the coconut. No water added, no sugar added. I don't like the sweetened ones and come in cans.
Anyway, I drink a lot of water. I drink the coconut water for my health. My skin, my chronic pain and to keep my intestines clean of parasites. (I've gotten 2 parasites from drinking water.) Normally I don't drink tap water as it makes me vomit. However, I used to make tea from it. Instant tea. It changed the flavor of the water, & I wouldn't vomit. Then I had pains in my stomach for months. The doctor did a blood test and discovered a parasite.
Coconut water has been said to kill parasites. I only drink filtered water as well. Coconut water tastes good and it does give me the nutrients and electrolytes I need for that pick me up kind of feeling. I know when my energy starts sapping away, I chug some coconut water and I start feeling better. I love it.

My daughter was looking for a healthy alternative to pop so she tried it. She hated it. I said I'd try because I am more tolerant of different foods. I hated it.

I go to the supermarket and buy real coconut, use a hammer to crack it a bit, then I use a sharpe knife to make a small slit in the coconut' hold it over a container, if you get a bit dust in the water, just strain it .done.
