GNC Recovery Drink Review

Hi Neighbors!

We are having a great day here At the Fence and are looking forward to visiting with you for awhile.  Today we are trying GNC's PHENOM Coconut Water.  Now, I am sure some of my neighbors are asking, "What is Coconut Water?". Good question, I was wondering about that myself, so I have done a little research.  First I will tell you what Coconut Water is not!  It is not water infused with coconuts or special water for watering coconut palms.  Coconut water is a the liquid found in the cavity of a coconut when you crack one open.  This liquid is absorbed as the coconut matures, so you need to get coconut water from young green coconuts.

PHENOM is made from 100% natural coconut water.  It contains no artificial flavors, preservatives or added    sugars.  Not only that, but it is low in calories, has zero cholesterol and it has been infused with GNC  power for more benefits.

I am sure my neighbors are wondering, "How does it taste?". Well, I received the PURE PHENOM Hydro which is 100% Natural Coconut Water (from concentrate) with added electrolytes for maximum hydration.  Next was Pineapple Punch PHENOM Mega V 100% Natural Coconut Water with added vitamins and electrolytes.  Last was the Orange Guava Passion PHENOM Mega V also 100% Natural Coconut Water with added vitamins and electrolytes. PHENOM comes in 7 different flavors.  The result of the taste tests!  They taste like coconut.  I have to confess I personally am not a big fan of coconut and yes, I did sample them, but my husband on the other hand loves coconut.  Out of the three I received, his favorite was the PURE, followed by the Pineapple Punch.  So for the recovery drink review, I would have to say if you want a healthy drink for replenishing your active body, be sure to try the PHENOM 100% Natural Coconut Waters from GNC.

Looks like the liquid that comes from a Coconut!
With my active family, that plays racquetball 3 times a week, volleyball almost every day, when the weather permits, along with other activities, PHENOM would great to have around.  When you sweat, your body loses important electrolytes, in particular potassium and sodium. In order to replenish your body and properly rehydrate, you should drink electrolyte-rich beverages. Because coconut water is an excellent source of electrolytes, it makes an excellent after workout recovery drink.

If you have ever tried PHENOM before leave a comment telling us what you thought!
