Coconut Water - The best health drink

Include coconut water into your life and see its benefits help you gain better skin, hair, low risk of kidney stones and more.

Coconut water is the new trendy drink that everyone swears to have tremendous health benefits. Coconut water comes from 6 to 12 month-old green coconuts. On average this contains 94% water and extremely less fat count. A cup of coconut water is known to have around 60 calories along with your daily requirements of potassium (15%), calcium (4%) and magnesium (2%). An ounce of coconut water is said to have only 1.75 grams of sugar along with electrolytes. This ‘Natural Sports Drink’ is heavily endorsed by many athletes and doctors. Let’s know more about them and their benefits.

Energy Drink 

Many of us are in the habit of drinking sugary beverages like sports drinks, coffee and tea. These drinks do provide us with an instant recharge but they tremendously increase our sugar intake. A sugarless substitute is coconut water. Not only does it reduce your sugar intake but also provide you with the necessary battery recharge. This natural drink can also be consumed by diabetic patients. Studies claim that the magnesium found in coconut water can reduce blood sugar levels in type 2 diabetes. 

Healthy Skin

Coconut water is infused with antioxidants that can fight free radicals. This antioxidant-rich drink can help you clear your skin concerns. It can lower your acne and pimple problems with its antimicrobial properties. Coconut water is also known to provide a glow to your skin because of fulfilling hydration requirements. 

Fights Kidney Stones

An estimated 12% of people suffer from kidney stones. These are small crystals that form because of calcium, oxalate and other compounds. One research found that with the intake of coconut water, many showed less likelihood of developing kidney stones. Coconut water even helps to flush out toxins like chloride, potassium and citrate.

Include coconut water into your life and see its benefits help you gain better skin, hair, low risk of kidney stones and more. The best way to consume coconut water is in the morning after your workout. It will give you the hydration required after sweating it all out in your exercise. If you want to gain more benefits, turn coconut water into a smoothie by adding green leafy vegetables, fruits, seeds and nuts.
