Coconut water is the clear liquid inside a young coconut, not to be confused with coconut milk or coconut cream which is the white flesh of the fruit blended with water until smooth. Coconut water is fat-free and should be enjoyed daily. Here are five reasons why:
Coconut water is naturally low in calories, fat-free and low on the glycemic index. It’s also loaded with B Vitamins, Vitamin C, calcium, magnesium and other essential minerals.
The process of the water traveling through the coconut tree through the plant naturally purifies the water contained inside the fruit.
Do you know how much sugar most sports drinks contain? Why risk it! Coconut water contains more electrolytes and less sugar than most sports drinks; it also contains more potassium than bananas. Hollywood celebrities rely on it for healthy, glowing skin for its hydrating and nutritious qualities, so drink up!
It’s great for fighting infections, warding off disease, and boosting your immune system. It can also help balance the ratio of good-to-bad bacteria in your digestive tract.
Coconut water has a delightful mild taste. Different brands will taste a little different as the coconuts come from different parts of the world – try a few different brands until you find the one you like best. Just make sure the ingredients read only coconut water and that it doesn’t have anything added to it.
