As many of you know, I sweat a lot when I run so I’m always looking for ways to improve my hydration. It’s something I’m continuously working on until I am able to finish a half marathon without feeling the effects of dehydration.
When the opportunity came up to test out Detach Coconut+, I jumped at the opportunity. I had never used it before so I wanted to see if this was a product I could incorporate into my half marathon training and races. The only thing I was worried about was if I would like the taste as I’m not a huge fan of coconut. I figured it was still worth a shot and I’m glad I did take the chance.
What is Detach Coconut+? It is an organic coconut water core with added purified sea salt for improved hydration. Next they added coconut nectar and honey for a low glycemic energy boost. Then, they added a proprietary blend of protein building blocks for an endurance, muscle, and mental boost you can actually feel. It has a light refreshing citrus flavor with no “fake” sweeteners. Ellie-Ade is the new of the flavor which is a naturally flavored Lemon/Lime with just the right hint of coconut. The drinks are certified paleo, low GI and gluten-free. Plus, each bottle is of Detach Coconut+ is only 60 calories.
Detach has done a great job of delivering a delicious taste and they are spot on with saying it is “Coconut Water Evolved”. As I stated earlier, I’m not a huge fan of coconut so I was a bit worried about how I’d feel about the taste of it. Well, I was amazed at how much I loved the taste. Honestly, if you didn’t tell me it was coconut water, I would have no idea. The citrus flavoring is not overpowering either. It’s seriously the perfect blend. Detach has done an excellent job on the blend and their three years of work paid off.
The other thing I love about Detach Coconut+ is that they market it as “Your Smart Pre-Activity Choice”. Above I mentioned the endurance, muscle, and mental boost. Well it is legit. I’ve felt it each time I’ve drank one of these prior to my runs or work out. It’s probably the thing I’ve loved the most about this product. It’s totally helped me put in a better effort during the work outs I’ve drank it prior.
Went from feeling a bit sluggish prior to my workout to having a fantastic run and lift today thanks to @drinkdetach Coconut +. I drank 1 pre-workout & 1 during my workout. I felt the boost mentally and physically. Love the taste Check it out. #drinkdetach #getdetach #bibravepro pic.twitter.com/0TPj3gZOS9

They also recommend that you use it during work outs. I tested this out on longer runs and again, it delivered. You don’t get a nasty after taste and you feel that boost in energy again.
I definitely recommend you try out Detach Coconut+. Just so you know, I’ve liked it so much, I’m in the process of buying five cases of it to stock up for the next few half marathons. It’s a product I’m going to continue to use.
I've had issues with staying hydrated in past half marathons. Thankfully, @drinkdetach Coconut+ is helping me change that for my next half marathon in 5 weeks. Try it out. I've really liked it a lot. #drinkdetach #getdetach #BibChat #BibRavePro #runnersofinstagram #runspirational #runnersofig #igrunning #igrunner #igrunners #run #running #fitness #hydrate #BeRunspirational
