What You Should Know
Agro Labs is the manufacturer for Case Coconut Water Shot. The shot is a recovery drink used before and after exercise to maintain healthy electrolyte levels. Intense exercise causes sweating and sweating can cause an imbalance of electrolytes. Many intense athletes use electrolyte shots or gel packs to maintain energy during workouts. We found the product on a third-party vitamin website with a complete list of ingredients. Some of the ingredients are not typical for a recovery drink.
List of Ingredients
Niacin, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Calcium, Phosphorus, Magnesium, Manganese, Sodium, Potassium.
Proprietary Energy Blend: L-Arginine, Caffeine, D-Ribose, Panax Ginseng Extract, Guarana Seed Extract and Green Tea Extract.
Proprietary Electrolyte Blend: Young Green Coconut Water Concentrate, Potassium Citrate and Potassium Chloride.
Some of the ingredients in Agro Labs Case Coconut Water were expected, like coconut water and potassium. Potassium helps rebalance electrolyte levels after water loss due to sweating. The B vitamins like B12 and B6 offer a healthy boost of quick energy; just what the dieter needs.
L-Arginine is a water and fat soluble antioxidant that helps repair cells and fight off free radical damage. L-Arginine also boosts other antioxidants. Panax ginseng extract helps the athlete maintain focus and mental control.
The three ingredients we do not quite understand are caffeine, guarana and green tea extract. Caffeine is a stimulant and diuretic. If the user is trying to balance electrolyte levels, caffeine could cause an even bigger problem. Guarana is another stimulant. We can understand taking a stimulant before working out, but not as a recovery drink after working out.
Green tea is one of our favorite ingredients, but use in a recovery drink is questionable. If green tea is included as an antioxidant or to support other health issues that could arise from intense workouts, that’s one thing, but if it is used to boost metabolism, it has no place in a recovery drink.
One case of Agro Labs Case Coconut Water Shot costs $22. The case contains six drinks. One bottle is one serving, so the user would have to drink one before exercise and another after exercise. We have no idea how much caffeine is included in the supplement because it is part of a proprietary blend.
- Contains healthy electrolytes to keep the body balanced.
- Contains green tea, proven to support good health.
- The product is a bit costly.
- Dieters may get better benefit than someone in need of a recovery drink.
The Agro Labs Case Coconut Water Shot is more of a fat burner and weight loss supplement than a recovery drink. Caffeine and guarana may be perfect before a workout, but not after workout when the athlete or dieter is supposed to be recovering and rehydrating.
