What is Coconut Water?

Coconut water in tropical countries is considered the water of health because it contains the 5 essential electrolytes to be taken before and after sports: sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium and phosphorus. It is also rich in vitamin B and C and there are many benefits that it can make to our health: Thanks to the potassium contained in it, it helps to raise the cholesterol levels of High-density lipoprotein (HDL), which helps to protect cardiovascular health.

The Benefits of Coconut Water

Coconut water strengthens the immune system because it contains lauric acid, a substance with antibacterial, antifungal and antimicrobial properties that helps protect against germs and bacteria attacks due to numerous diseases. It works positively on metabolism if drunk regularly. Its caloric intake is very low and contains a minimum fat content, about 1%. I remember that a more active metabolism can favour the loss of excess pounds.

Regular intake also counteracts abdominal swelling. Coconut water contains many bioactive enzymes, useful for digesting foods, always if taken regularly. It can also be a valuable aid to blood circulation and regularise heart rate due to high fibre, protein, and vitamin C. It can relieve acidity, stomach burns and pregnancy in pregnant women. Its intake is particularly indicated during the gestation months, it is a natural product that does not have any side effects. It contributes to moisturising the skin making it brighter and at the same time, it allows to regulate excessive sebum production.

Coconut Water can also be applied directly to the skin, replacing the tonic and may be helpful in treating acne and imperfections. Regular intake may be helpful in cases of convalescence, asthenia or appetite. It can help improve energy levels and stimulate hormone production by the thyroid. It can bring benefits to the urinary tract because it is able to purify the bladder and toxin elimination channels.

Continuous use helps prevent urinary tract infections and alleviates renal and kidney problems.
