Important Information for Drinkers !!
I recently posted an article called Poolside coconut cocktail recipes, a bit of fun and not entirely beneficial to the drinkers apart from the obvious value as a social lubricant :).
I want to add that The title had the word Poolside, just let me confirm that means by the pool not in the pool.
Now then I wanted to follow up with a couple of things.
Drinking Alcohol will affect your co-ordination but also increase your confidence, just bear this in mind if you are larking around by the pool. Imagine slipping and falling in with nobody there to assist you. I’m shuddering just thinking of the possible consequences.
Don’t Drink And Swim.
Do not drink alcohol when swimming because it can impair the ability to judge distances as well as the physical coordination necessary to swim..
Its ok to take a drink in the heat but please don drink too much. Alcohol is a diuretic and you will dehydrate if you drink too much. Essential fluids are sapped from your muscles and could lead to cramping if you are swimming
Now then with those little safety tips I’m sure you can still enjoy your drinks and have a great time in the sun.
Drinking alcohol in excess is likely to lead to a hangover the next day.
Coconut water as a Hangover Cure
Coconut Water is a natural hangover elixir. It will have you feeling better in no time.
How you may ask can coconut water help with a hangover ?
In many ways!! but before I tell you lets get an understanding of what a hangover is and what its symptoms are.
A hangover is your body’s reaction to drinking excessive amounts of alcohol, your body actually loses four times as much fluid due to the alcohol that it normally would, leading to dehydration.
Your body wants to grab some of that fluid back and guess where it grabs it from? Any where it can, Dehydration, causes the fluids around the brain to lower which in turn lowers the blood pressure and blood flow to the brain.This plus toxins from the metabolism of alcohol are the reason why most hangovers are accompanied by a headache. Did you know that repeated over drinking of alcohol can cause your brain to actually shrink.
Did you know that when alcohol is metabolised the liver produces a toxin called acetaldehyde. Normally this is broken down by enzymes but when we are downing alcohol like there’s no tomorrow the enzymes cannot keep up and you will start to feel nausea, maybe vomiting, blurred vision, the shakes.
Dehydration also depletes your body of electrolytes essential for your well being. Potassium is one of the minerals lost by dehydration and it is important for your muscles to function so you may feel cramps too.
Alcohol also causes your digestive system to produce excess acids that can cause stomach ache and heartburn.
1. Coconut water rehydrates the body, meaning the headache disappears.
2. It replaces the four lost essential electrolytes we need Sodium, Potassium, Magnesium and Calcium.
4. The potassium in the coconut water helps to improve muscle function.
5. It helps return blood sugar levels to normal.
Coconut water is natural, it’s fat free, it tastes nice and it has more electrolytes than a lot of the other remedies like lucazade.
It has no additives like artificial sweeteners, it has properties with proven benefits to the body, such as anti fungal and anti bacterial.
Coconut water is therefore not only a very refreshing drink, it is probably the best natural hangover cure.
If you are not convinced (the best way is to try it yourself) you can find many coconut water products in the nutty coconut shop
