There is a new drink around the curb and its gaining attention for all the right reasons- Cactus water. Unlike any other colloquial water preferences, like H2O or coconut water, this drink is going to change the definition of beverage for you.
New plant-based beverage, cactus water, has got all the beauty and health benefits that we want in a trendy non-water water. Hearing it for the first time may make your eyebrows to scrunch up since cactus brings up a mental image of a hot, arid, moistureless desert and far from a healthy beverage that could quench your thirst after a steamy workout.
As strange as it may sound, Cactus water is a very nutritional resource of hydration. This latest H20 fad is low in calories (18 calories per cup) and contains 4 grams of carbs, no added sugar, and 159mg of potassium. And this potassium promotes muscle recovery after that ultimate arms workout (What is even a leg day?)
Just like camels who store water in their humps, cactus store tons of water in that pink fruit at the top of prickly pear cactus, which is where most cactus waters come from. (Our 12th class knowledge fails us every day)
This trendy drink helps you replenish your electrolytes after a workout using the two magical ingredients known as betalains and taurine (Your two best friends in the gym). Both of which further improve athletic performance by increasing the body’s ability to transport and utilize oxygen and then increase the length of time before exhaustion sets in. (So that you can do multiple reps before calling it a day)
Additionally, It works like many other facial oils to hydrate your skin due to its high fatty acid content. The real benefit is that it helps prevent water loss throughout your skin, so your skin will retain hydration for longer periods of time.
With all these health benefits and amazing advantages for the gym enthusiasts, we are sure cactus water will stand tall in the arena of beverages.
