Picture yourself on a quiet beach in the tropics. Toes in the sand, waves gently caressing the shoreline just feet from your chair, orange sun hanging in the clear blue afternoon sky. Theres a drink in your hand–it’s a coconut full of fresh, cold milky coconut water, and it was fetched and carved by one of the island natives from the palm tree located just outside your beach front estate. Now picture you were in this blissful paradise setting every day, for 6 months straight… only without the whole tropical paradise scenario. The next best thing: A 6 month supply of ZICO pure premium coconut water, fresh from your refrigerator! The refreshing taste will bring your mind, if not your body, to a place a paradise as wholesome as the beverage in your hand. WIN IT: A 6-month supply of ZICO pure premium coconut water. For more than 4,000 years, coconut water has been revered as a natural source of nutrition, wellness, beauty and hydration. In times of famine and war, coconut water has been used as an intravenous fluid and saved many lives. It’s the only natural substance that can be safely injected into the human blood stream. Now modern science has validated its effectiveness, especially as a natural sports drink. ZICO contains the five essential electrolytes that gives your body everything it needs to stay hydrated and perform at your best. One ZICO has more potassium than a banana – 15 times more than most sports drinks – to prevent cramping. Drink ZICO before or during a workout for the natural energy you need for optimal performance. After a workout, ZICO replenishes and re-hydrates you to speed recovery.
