Coconut water is one of the most refreshing and hydrating beverages around, thanks to its high electrolyte contents. It contains a number of nutrients that are crucial for us — it's very high in potassium, which helps stabilize blood pressure and fluid balance within the body, and can even prevent headaches and cramps.

Organic and raw coconut water is the best bet, when available. Organic raw coconut water contains living enzymes, which aid digestion and metabolism. It also contains complex B-vitamins and amino acids. Its high hydration quotient comes from calcium, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, and sodium.

Not so long ago, a craving for coconut water might have required a plane ticket to Thailand or the Caribbean. Now, it's everywhere — even at your corner drugstore. Of course, as with any popular product, the options are plenty and growing, so we consulted over 20 nutritionists to find out which their favorite brands are and why.
