It has also traditionally been used to treat dehydration and given as ceremonial gifts throughout the tropics. coconut water has less sodium, the main electrolyte you lose with sweat, than most sport's drinks. It also has fewer carbohydrates than many drinks meant for endurance performance. With only 45 calories in a cup, coconut water is a great substitute for higher calorie drinks like sodas or juice.
