Staying hydrated is crucial for achieving peak performance. Vita Coco coconut water promotes rehydration as well as refuelling as it provides carbohydrate as well as fluid.

Before exercise, your main priority is ensuring you are hydrated to have the best chance of putting in your best performance. During exercise, there are no hard and fast rules about how much to drink but, 400-800ml per hour will prevent dehydration and overhydration. After exercise, the sooner you start to replace the fluid the sooner you will recover. So make drinking your priority immediately after exercise.
