Naked Juice® Coconut Water

Coconut water is a natural source of potassium and sodium, important electrolytes that help the body hold onto water and maintain hydration.

Fluid Foods

Choose foods higher in water content at meals and snacks to help improve hydration. Good choices include melons, citrus fruits, strawberries, cucumbers, tomatoes, celery, spinach, yogurt, popsicles and soups.
