Are you nuts about health and wellness? Do you feel ill or cranky when you miss a good sweat at the gym? Do you have a calorie diary? Are you into a healthy lifestyle? Would you rather eat kale than chips? Then you will definitely love coconut water (if you’re not already crazy for it!).
In fact, coconut water is so loved by health buffs that it has been tagged as nature’s sports drink. It’s like Mother Nature created a sports drink minus the added sugar and calories. But of course lugging around a coconut shell and hacking it with a machete to replace lost fluids in your body after Zumba is so not sexy, and well, a tad bit crazy. So we packed all the natural goodness of coconut water and made it gym friendly.
Locally’s Merci Buco coco water is the perfect drink for hydration. In fact, it has an average of only 40 to 50 calories across all variants and only 10 grams of sugar (for flavoured variants) and making Locally Merci Buco Organic Coconut Water variant even safe for diabetics! Locally Merci Buco is likewise free from fat, cholesterol, gluten, and GMO.
Locally Merci Buco also has electrolytes. Fitness and sports enthusiasts know for a fact that sweating it out leads to an electrolyte imbalance in the body that may affect muscle contraction and heartbeat functions. Having Locally Merci Buco coco water as a post-workout drink will replenish major electrolytes lost after you exercise.
But if you’re not into fitness or exercise, but just want something to hydrate you when you feel like your throat is in Sahara Desert mode, or if you’re simply bored with plain, old water, then grab a 330ml or 1 litre pack of Locally Merci Buco and chug away!
And unlike other juice drinks that are made from concentrates, Locally Merci Buco still has the natural health benefits of coconuts, such as being a good source of potassium, calcium, and magnesium. Coco water also helps the kidneys function well and reduces high blood pressure or hypertension by improving blood circulation. It can also soothe an upset or inflamed stomach or mild gastrointestinal infections, and help regulate bowel movement.
Don’t panic, it’s organic! Locally Merci Buco is the only coconut water in the Philippines certified by both the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) 1 and EcoCert2 – international regulating bodies that are strict in accrediting organic products. This means that you are assured of the 100% organic drink’s quality and integrity, with ingredients grown without the use of icky stuff like pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, GMO, or ionizing radiation.
On top of all these amazing health benefits, Locally’s Merci Buco adds to your delightful drinking experience by offering two unique Pinoy flavors—Buco Pandan and Buco Lychee.
Now, stretch those muscles and go for a run towards your nearest Rustan’s, PureGold, and Robinsons supermarkets and grab a pack of Merci Buco. Also available in the US and the Middle East, if you feel like exercising towards there as well.
