COCO5 is a biological rehydration formula that provides the body with complete electrolyte replenishment required by active lifestyles. COCO5 contains components that occur naturally in coconut water, elements recognised by medical science as crucial to the biological balance of hydrating cells.
Water is vital to the body but water alone cannot provide the rehydration our active bodies demand. Homeostasis, cellular fluid balance, is achieved when both water and electrolytes are present in adequate concentrations. The electrolytes create a chemical gradient that allows or disallows the movement of fluid from cell to cell and from compartment to compartment.
When the electrolyte concentrations are out of balance and the water content of the cell is depleted, our bodies need more than pure water and this is where the natural electrolytes and in coconut water can help us.
It is necessary to restore electrolytes along with the water to re-balance the electrolyte gating mechanisms to allow efficient fluid uptake by the cells. Feeding your cells with electrolytes will provide proper cellular hydration and will promote a myriad of health benefits including:
- Lubrication of joints and muscles
- Conversion of food into energy
- Formations of protective linings in eyes, nose, air passages and lungs
- Proper muscle contraction
- Mental focus
- Physical performance
- Nervous system function
THE 5 ESSENTIAL ELECTROLYTES IN COCO5
|Sodium is an essential element for life. Sodium ions are used in opposition to potassium ions, to allow build-up of electrostatic charge on cell membranes which allows transmission of nerve impulses. This homeostasis is vital to the normal physiologic function of cells.||Potassium is necessary for the function of all living cells and employs electrical potentials in cells, especially the nervous tissues. Potassium depletion results in various neurological dysfunctions.||Magnesium is required by over 300 enzymes for their catalytic action. Low levels of magnesium in the body is associated with the development of a number of human illnesses such as asthma, diabetes and osteoporosis.||Calcium in the body aids in exocytosis, especially neurotransmitter release and muscle contraction. In the electrical conduction system of the heart, calcium replaces sodium as the mineral that depolarizes the cell, proliferating the action potential.||Chloride is critical for the body’s metabolism (the process of turning food into energy) while helping keep the body’s acid-base balance. The right amount of chloride in the blood is necessary for maintenance of osmotic pressure in the tissue.|
