Here at Jungle Miami we recommend things that are a little outside of the box. Not because they are outside of the norm, but because science points to them being the best, but no one can really make that much money off of it. So, in our evil attempt to put the supplement industry out of business, we are going to talk about how the best sports drink you can have... is plain old natural coconut water.
We believe in it so much, that we sell it here. In fact, we go a step above, and sell coconut water with no preservatives or additives whatsoever direct from Jamaica, the way Mother Nature intended... straight from the coconut. (And yes, it was really hard to find a supplier who didn't use preservatives, but our hard work is your gain. We only keep a weeks worth in stock, so, first come, first served. Oh, and by the way, we've had a lot of requests, but, we don't ship it. It has no preservatives, and by the time it get to you, well, it's gone bad. You must get it here.)
