Can you drink coconut water daily?

While there are definite health benefits to adding coconut water to your diet, certified nutritionist Serena Poon tells Parade that drinking too much of it can be problematic to your health. Even if the brand of water does contain added sugar, its natural sweetness adds calories to your diet — although not as many as some sports drinks, Dr. Stacie Stephenson adds. Further, Parade notes that too much potassium can lead to hyperkalemia, a life-threatening condition that causes heart palpitations and chest pains. Those with kidney disease may want to avoid coconut water altogether since potassium is processed through the kidneys.
