Review: Coconut Drink
GNC is carrying a new product—Phenom Coconut Water. This is 100% coconut water enhanced with GNC vitamins and minerals. They offer 4 types:
These coconut drinks are designed to replace electrolytes when working out to prevent hydration. As taken from the GNC website: “Coconut water helps to re-hydrate and replenish the 5 electrolytes you have in your body: potassium, calcium, sodium, phosphorous, and magnesium. In fact, coconut water is isotonic with your blood; therefore, it is sometimes used as a plasma substitute in extreme emergencies.” You can read more about the benefits of coconut water on their website. They even claim it is the best thing for a hangover!
This product is 100% natural, has no fat, no cholesterol, no added sugar and only has 45 calories per serving.
I tried the following flavors: pure, Acai Peach, Orange Guava Passion and Blueberry Pomme. I can’t say that I am a big fan of coconut, so it is no surprise that I didn’t care much for the pure. However, the flavored ones, especially the Blueberry Pomme, where not bad. I love that there is no added sugar and knowing that drinking it is doing my body good. I also love the packaging—instead of plastic bottles, these are in 2-serving cartons that will break down.
Disclosure: I received 4 cartons of Phenom to test for this post and will receive a GNC gift card for making this post. This review contains my honest opinions.
