We heard a lot about the wonders of coconut water for your health, but are they truly the miracle drinks?
Coconut water, or the clear liquid found inside young coconuts, indeed brings a lot of benefits for your body.
It makes for the perfect post-exercise drink. As we sweat, we lose not only water but also other minerals such as potassium and sodium. Coconut water is rich in potassium, and a lot of the drinks sold in the market today are also sodium-enriched, helping replenish your body and regulate the fluid balance. The potassium also helps improve blood circulation, regulate blood pressure and reduce the risk of heart attacks.
It’s also a guilt-free treat. Besides having a great, sweet taste, coconut water is cholesterol-free and low in carbohydrate, fat and calories – better than many sports drinks out there.
So don’t worry – have some coconut water today and enjoy the great health benefits!
