Is Cactus Water the New Coconut Water?

(Hint: It’s even better.)

Remember when coconut water was all the rage for its health benefits and delicious taste? Well, you should be even more excited about cactus water; the newest post-workout drink has all the same perks with half the sugar and calories of most coconut water brands. No lie. Half.

Praised for their iced green tea and organic energy drink, Steaz has rolled out their special brand of cactus water using juice concentrate from the prickly pear fruit. As the only organic-certified and green tea-based cactus water in the market, its three main flavors include original green tea, cucumber and starfruit. Each flavor has only 90 calories and nine grams of sugar.

Thanks to its natural electrolytes and antioxidants, cactus water serves as a super hydrating solution after sweating it out in the sun. It also reduces inflammation to conquer muscle fatigue and aches from exercise. And it doesn’t hurt that it has bonus beauty benefits, like glowing skin and decreasing under-eye puffiness. So it’s basically magic.

Think it’s too good to be true? Try it for yourself at the Be Well Philly Summer Yoga Flow at Dilworth Park. Every Tuesday from 6 to 7:15 p.m. through August 29, enjoy free, BYO-mat outdoor yoga instruction from fitness guru Mariel Freeman of Three Queens Yoga. The summer series will feature music from DJ SYLO and – you guessed it – free, two-ounce samples of Steaz cactus water. If that wasn’t enough, Steaz is also handing out coupons and swag, plus holding a raffle for a pair of Steaz-branded Athleta leggings.
