Guest blogger Stephanie from Expert Home Tips is a big fan of our Chi drinks. Being passionate about food, fashion and lifestyle, she’s here to share 12 reasons why she is totally in love with coconut water – and why you should be too!
1) Chi coconut water is low in calories
Summer is well on its way and for many of us, that means cutting down on the calories a bit. Chi can help you get trim for your holiday. It’s much lower in calories than your average, store-bought drink, containing half the calories of orange juice (19 calories/100ml).
As Chi is also 100% natural, there are no nasties such as artificial colours and flavourings for your body to deal with. Pick up a bottle instead of your full-fat coke, and watch the pounds fall off.
2) Chi is high in fibre
The reasons to swap your soda for Chi just keep on coming.
A glass a day will help you work towards meeting your recommended fibre intake too. Fibre is essential for the digestion process, as it bulks up stools, allowing them to pass through the digestive tract more easily.
The recommended daily amount is around 30g for adults – a number Chi can help make achievable. Just 250ml will provide you with an impressive 7.5% of your RDA, compared with just 2% for the same quantity of orange juice.
As far as fibre is concerned, Chi coconut water comes out on top!
3) Chi is high in potassium
If you don’t know much about potassium, here’s a quick low-down:
Potassium is an electrolyte, required for the regulation of the body’s water level. It helps ensure you become neither dehydrated, nor retain excess water.
Chi’s high potassium content is one of the reasons people love drinking it as a sport’s drink. When we sweat whilst working out, we lose essential minerals along with water. A glass of Chi helps to replenish the fluids lost and rebalance the body.
Potassium has loads of other benefits too. It’s often used to treat migraines, cardiovascular health and constipation. With a 250ml glass containing 625mg of potassium, your 12.5% daily intake has never been easier to meet!
4) Chi coconut water is gentle on the stomach
Raw, organic and 100% natural – Chi’s is an ideal drink to soothe upset stomachs.
Chi contains loads of electrolytes and antioxidants inside each glass, helping to flush out toxins and rebalance the digestive system. Coconut water also contains tannins, which are known for reducing inflammation.
Stick to water and 100% natural coconut water and you should be feeling great again in no time.
5) No refined sugar
Now, I’m not saying coconut water is sugar-free. There are naturally occurring sugars in Chi, 3.71g/100ml to be exact.
These naturally occurring sugars are, however, completely different to the refined sugars you find in a can of pop. This is because fizzy drinks contain highly processed sugar, and little else. This sugar leads to a spike in insulin levels, leaving your hormones all over the place.
Chi’s, however, has a high nutritional value, including lots of dietary fibre. Fibre help the body absorb naturally occurring sugars more slowly, releasing regular energy over time.
6) Chi is high in magnesium
Magnesium plays a key role in so many of our bodies functions. Fall short on your recommended daily intake and you could experience muscle cramps, poor sleep and even anxiety.
Unlike fizzy drinks, which contain no magnesium at all, Chi is relatively rich in magnesium – a 250ml glass contains around 15% of your recommended daily allowance.
Chi could be the key to reaching your RDA of magnesium, supporting your body in over 300, complex enzyme reactions.
7) Chi could help lower your blood pressure
Worryingly, one in three adults in the UK has high blood pressure. It can happen to anyone, that’s why ensuring you live a lifestyle that actively prevents it is so important.
A balanced diet, including lots of fruit and vegetables (and Chi!), can help maintain a low blood pressure. Fresh, 100% natural produce contains plenty of potassium, which is key in regulating the effects on salt on the body.
Get enough potassium, and your helping your body to keep your blood pressure stable.
8) 100% natural Chi is extremely low in fat
The ‘fat debate’ has been going on for many years. Should we avoid them, or embrace them? And if the latter, which ones are the best? Well, the truth is that we need fats to live.
Fats provide us with an extra source of energy when all of our carbohydrates are used up. Besides exercise, this energy is also essential for growth, brain function, healthy skin, and much more.
So fats should indeed be embraced, but it’s not an excuse to overindulge. Excess fat consumption can lead to high cholesterol and other health problems. In order to avoid this, the recommended daily saturated fat allowance of 24g should be adhered to.
In order not to exceed this, it’s best to have a balanced diet of both fatty and low-fat foods. Chi contains few (0.2g/100ml) and only naturally occurring fats, making it a healthy addition to your diet.
9) Chi is an ideal cleanser & toner for sensitive skin
So we’ve heard all about the nutritional benefits of Chi, but did you also know it can be used on skin?
When used on the skin, coconut water is extremely hydrating, leaving skin looking plumped and refreshed. Being 100% natural, raw and organic it’s a gentle cleanser for sensitive or problem-prone skin.
If you want to see what Chi is really made of, try using it to remove makeup. It’s extremely gentle and soothing – and also much cheaper than beauty brands. Use by applying to coconut wool pads and sweeping over the face.
10) Chi coconut water contains vitamin C
Anything with the word ‘vitamin’ in front of it has got to be good. Chi contains generous amounts of Vitamin C, which has a wide array of health benefits.
Vitamin C works to boost our immune system, making the body more adept at protecting us from sickness. Externally, it’s essential for wound repair, helping our bodies to grow connective tissues that heal our cuts. Best of all, Vitamin C plays an important role in the production of mood-enhancing chemicals in our body – drinking Chi really will make you smile!
11) Chi coconut water gives back
One of the best things about Chi is that it’s 100% honest. What you see on the packaging is what you get – nothing but 100% raw, organic coconut water.
But Chi isn’t just ethical in the product it provides – it goes a step further. Working hand in hand with Drop4Drop to deliver water wells to underdeveloped communities in India and Africa, Chi like to give a little back.
By choosing Chi coconut water, you’re also helping those most in need across the world. Every carton you buy gives communities safe access to one of the most vital human needs – water.
Chi’s benefits are never ending. For your health, for your skin, for the environment and for other, less-fortunate people around the world, there’s no comparable coconut water in the UK.
12) Chi coconut water is available in different flavours
If you’re the type of person that gets bored easily, you’ll be pleased to know Chi has many different flavours to explore. From a Cold Brew Coffee & Raw Coconut Water to get you going in the morning to a 100% Pure Coconut Water & Pineapple for post-workout revitalisation, there’s a Chi coconut water perfect for every occasion.
