Remember the age-old belief about coconut water being good for your body?
Well it may just be true.
Being a tropical country, Fiji has an abundance of coconuts throughout the year. So instead of guzzling plain water or isotonic drinks, Fiji’s National Rugby team drinks fresh coconut water to stay refreshed during and after trainings.
“We have the green coconuts (young coconuts) after training and the older coconuts before training,” said Ben Ryan, head coach of the Fiji National Rugby team, in an interview with AsiaOne.
