If you could combine the hydrating benefits of coconut water with refreshingly crisp bubbles of CO2, you get Vita Coco's new sparkling coconut waters. And with flavors like grapefruit, lemon ginger, raspberry lime, and pineapple passionfruit, it's possible to quench your thirst for a hint natural sweetness and reap the benefits of coconut water in one drink. What we love about Vita Coco's sparkling coconut waters is that they're low in calories and sugar, and they actually taste great. At 25 calories and 4 grams of sugar per can, you can rehydrate with it post-workout and avoid filling up on the empty calories you find in some sports drinks. The best part is it's made simple: There are no added sugars and no artificial colors and flavors.

So why should you start drinking coco if you don't already? Coconut water is one of the best ways to replenish missing electrolytes after exercise because it's rich in potassium and has some sodium, calcium, and magnesium. Magnesium, in particular, is a mineral that's important for easing muscle cramps and soreness. Not to mention, it also helps your body release fat stores (goodbye, love handles!).

Vita Coco's sparkling waters deliver about 6 percent of your daily value while also providing 2 percent of your daily value of calcium, which is essential for bone health. So the next time you're looking to rehydrate after a seriously sweaty workout—and you dislike chugging plain H20—consider Vita Coco's sparkling water. We promise we won't judge if you decide to use it as a guilt-free mixer for a low-carb cocktail either.
