Keep drinking "Coconut Water" during exercise before myocardial infarction and kidney failure


Nowadays, there are many exercise activities for us to choose from, such as yoga, aerobics, swimming, cycling, and running, etc. When exercising, then what following is a loss of sweat and elevated body temperature. When sweat is lost, the body loses the minerals that are in the body as well. The consequences of not getting the necessary minerals back into the body can lead to cramping, fatigue, lack of refreshment, and possibly even "kidney failure" due to "myocardial infarction".


What is myocardial infarction? Why can it be kidney failure?

Most of the muscles in our body are “skeletal muscles,” which comprise about 50% of the total muscle. Examples of skeletal muscles in the body are muscles of the arms, legs, torso, parts of which we use in movement, etc., when an incident that causes such muscles to enter “Muscle infarction” chemicals in the muscles are released into the bloodstream in large quantities and cause effects on the kidneys and may eventually lead to kidney failure

When we exercise too hard and the body is not ready or not fit, it can increase the chance of infarction more and exercising in hot weather when the temperature rises, the body is unable to dissipate heat properly. Steadily, rising body temperature will cause muscle infarction that may even lead to kidney failure.


Significant symptoms that are warning signs that the body is in renal failure, urinating noticeably less. Even drinking plenty of water is still not getting better. Your urine is brown or even red because the chemicals in the dead muscles leak into the bloodstream and must be filtered out in the kidneys, feel severe muscle pain in your upper arms, thighs, shoulders, or back.


Keep yourself away from myocardial infarction from exercise easily.

Potassium is depleted from the body along with sweat. The more you sweat, the more you lose. The lack of potassium will result in lower oxygen in the blood, insufficient blood supply to the muscles cause cramps and the risk of developing myocardial infarction.

Studies and research have shown that taking coconut water after exercise will help the body get essential minerals, including sodium, potassium, magnesium, selenium, vitamin C. and antioxidants that are better than drinking plain water or other types of sweetened beverages. One glass of coconut water provides about 45 calories of energy. In addition, drinking coconut water will help to be the most refreshing and reduce fatigue.
