Helping everyone achieve the balance they need throughout the day.The story of ZICO® Premium Coconut Water begins in Central America, where, while volunteering with the Peace Corps, founder Mark Rampolla took notice that the locals regularly drank sweet coconut water for replenishment.Back in the States, in 2004, Mark left his corporate career to create ZICO Premium Coconut Water, initially selling it out of a van to New York City yoga studios. He couldn't make it quickly enough: customers were hooked on its refreshing taste and restorative qualities.The story goes on to Thailand, Indonesia, and the Philippines, where our suppliers source coconuts from hundreds of local farmers and work directly with coconut plantations — many that have been in families for generations — to bring you simple, honest-to-goodness hydration.Our story continues with you. We're passionate about finding ways to help everyone achieve the balance they need throughout the day, and think ZICO's hydration benefits can be one small step towards that balance, whether you seek them out in the board room, at the kitchen table, after a run, or in a moment to yourself.We believe coconut water can be the start of something good. A good choice, good hydration, maybe even a part of a good life that includes a balanced diet and exercise.No, we aren't nuts (technically we're drupes), we're excited by the fact that ZICO® Premium Coconut Water™ contains 5 electrolytes: sodium, magnesium, calcium, potassium, and phosphorus, that help keep you hydrated with some natural TLC. Coconut water is naturally gluten-free, lactose-free, and dairy-free and a bottle of ZICO also contains as much potassium as a banana, so you can breathe easy knowing you're treating your body well.Life's hectic. We believe in the power of small changes and the strength in hitting the reset button. And we think enjoying ice-cold ZICO Premium Coconut Water is a great place to start.
