By Kelly Grannetia – Mother nature surprises me every time….
Dreaming of a white sand beach with a coconut in your hand drinking the lovely coconut water. There is nothing better than drinking water straight from a coconut. Coconut water is the the perfect drink when you are traveling in the tropics. It keeps you hydrated in hot climates and it’s the best refreshing drink when you’re enjoying the sun.
Normally we drink the coconut water when we are on holiday but when you look around you can see that the water is booming. Besides that coconut water makes an excellent hydrating drink that replenishes electrolytes and can replace nasty chemical-filled Gatorade and Powerade, there are many reasons why you definitely have to drink the water.
For the party people
Coconut water is the ultimate Hangover Remedy.
After a night out your body is literally dried out and you need to fix this a.s.a.p. Coconut water is the most natural way to supplement the shortage of electrolyte (these are salts which are important to maintain the proper fluid balance, so moisture, both inside and outside the cells of the body and transport of nutrition and waste products in and out of these cells).
For the healthy people 😉
It is high in electrolytes, chlorides, potassium, and magnesium and has a moderate amount sodium and protein. It’s also a good source of dietary fibre, manganese, calcium, riboflavin and vitamin C.
- Coconut water is naturally low in calories, fat-free and low on the glycemic index. It contains a unique combination of B vitamins, vitamin C, micronutrients, and phytohormones that are exceptionally beneficial to your health.
- Coconut water is always a better option for kids and adults because it has less sugar than any other sports drink and much less sugar than sodas and some fruit juices.
- Coconut water has been used to treat a variety of health problems from the time unknown. It helpt to prevent heart attacks, lowers high blood pressure, can have anti-aging effect and fights free radicals to help prevent cancer.
And last but not least: IT’S DELICIOUS! Coconut water has a delightful mild taste.
