Hello Health: Coconut Water

Crazy for Coconut Water

A drink that is seriously good for you? Yep, that's coconut water! Made from young, green coconuts, this liquid is pure goodness!

Not to be confused with coconut milk, coconut water is the ultimate for hydration.  
So much better than a sports drink, coconut water contains the following 
5 essential electrolytes:

Fresh is best when it comes to coconut water! When the water is taken straight out of a young coconut it still contains the enzymes that help to detox and repair the body (this is because it hasn't been pasteurised yet).

Interesting Fact: Coconut Water can even be used in emergencies in IV's! The contents of natural coconut water is identical to that in human plasma!

A few more benefits of coconut water:
- It is great at boosting your immune system because it has so many essential electrolytes.
- Because it is so hydrating, coconut water is beneficial if you are vomiting or have diarrhea.
- It aids kidneys in filtering toxins.

  In the beginning of last year, I suffered from Adrenal Fatigue and all the articles I read on the subject mentioned how good coconut water is for your adrenals and kidneys!

It's important to check the ingredients in store bought coconut water, many times sugar is added to improve the flavour. I usually buy my coconut water from Faithful To Nature as I know it's pure and doesn't have added sugar. I personally gulp down my coconut water because I'm not a fan of how it tastes but rather choose coconut water that is 100% pure or drink it straight out of a fresh young coconut, island style!

Do you drink coconut water? Has it helped you?

Thanks for leaving a comment. It's always great to hear from you. ♥
