Whey Protein Isolate
The building blocks for all human cells
Protein is made up of amino acids of which there are 9 known as ‘essential’, and 11 other ‘non-essential’ amino acids. These amino acids are the building block for all human cells, making it absolutely essential to ensure the bodies protein stores are kept topped up. In fact, protein is the second most abundant component of the human body after water.
The whey protein isolate found in each CocoPro is also the fastest absorbing source of protein available. Not only will it help to repair your muscles after exercise, you'll also get a natural energy boost too making CocoPro the perfect replacement for your afternoon coffee.
High Electrolyte Profile
For Rapid Replenishment and Recovery
Electrolytes are essential minerals that help maintain proper fluid levels in the body and regulate overall brain, heart, muscle and nervous system function. When the body sheds fluids through prolonged sweating, vomiting or illness, mineral levels dip and must be restored. For athletes, the most obvious symptom of electrolyte imbalance is muscle cramping, but other signs can include weakness, dizziness or heart palpitations.
The essential electrolytes most commonly found in the human body are sodium, potassium, bicarbonate, chloride, calcium, and phosphates. Of these electrolytes Coconut water is particularly rich in potassium, sodium, magnesium, phosphorus and calcium.
Potassium - Coconut water – the fat-free water contained in young coconuts - contains more potassium per serving than the famously potassium-potent banana. Potassium depletion is often to blame if you experience muscle cramping during exercise and is especially important for regulating the function of muscle cells in the heart and blood levels.
Sodium - The Sodium in coconut water works to maintain your body's fluid balance.
Calcium - With Calcium, although a deficiency is unlikely to produce immediate symptoms, over time it can lead to osteoporosis, in which bones become increasingly porous and brittle.
Sodium - Sodium is the most important positive ion outside your cells, and is also one of the most depleted during exercise as it is lost through sweat and urine.
Magnesium - Finally, magnesium is crucial for maintaining the electrical potential of your cells and optimal muscle function.
No Added Sugar
Sweetened with Stevia
Health experts continue to warn of a problem of ‘enormous proportions’ as overweight and obesity rates rocket globally. Sugar-dense foods and drinks have been highlighted as major contributing factors for this.
Alternative artificial sweeteners like sucralose, aspartame and saccharine have been used as sugar-alternatives in recent years but stevia has been hailed the “miracle sweetener” in Europe in the last 5 years.
Stevia is naturally occurring, has zero calories, no carbohydrates and, unlike alternatives, does not raise blood sugar levels. Stevia is a sugar substitute extracted from the stevia plant – stevia rebaudiana – grown in Brazil and Paraguay, where it has been used for hundreds of years to sweeten foods and treat burns and stomach discomfort. The plant gets its sweetness from naturally occurring glycosides, extracted from the stevia leaves.
Industry experts have found that Stevia has the potential to help with weight management, dental health, and diabetes and we at CocoPro want the best for our health-conscious followers and stevia is perfectly aligned with the other premium ingredients in our High Protein Coconut water.
(There was a 400% increase globally in new stevia-based products between 2008 and 2012, with a 158 per cent rise from 2011-2012 - MINTEL Report)
