6 reasons to drink coconut water

Coconut crazy! We’ve recently been told that coconut is extremely good for us. We can eat it, drink it, moisturise with it; we can even condition our hair with it. But what are the real health benefits behind this craze? We normally go along with these things because people tell us to, and we don’t even think to research them. So here are 6 important reasons to remember why you should be drinking coconut water…

 

It is FULL of potassium…

Potassium is an essential ingredient to our diet, and is one of the seven essential macrominerals. It is key for controlling the electrical activity of heart and helps maintain a health PH balance in our bodies. Coconut water provides us with more potassium than 4 bananas do! So drink a bottle of coconut water to keep your heart happy and healthy!

 

Say hello to beautiful skin…

Coconut water does a great job at neutralising the toxins in your body. By doing this it also works wonders for your skin, helping build up your skins natural immune system. The cytokinins present in coconut water promote cell division, giving this miracle drink anti-ageing properties; so drink this drink to keep your skin looking fresh and youthful for longer!

It keeps you hydrated…

Coconut water is packed with natural elecrolytes! Its properties aid replacement of any minerals or fluids that are lost during any physical activity. So if you are one to work out on a regular basis, or maybe you’re just a ‘busy body’, keep a bottle of coconut water in your bag to make sure your body can successfully restore any minerals it may have lost throughout the day. It also works wonders if you’ve been drinking alcohol the night before!

 

It contains antioxidant properties…

Antioxidants are great at reducing what are called ‘free radicals’ in the body. These are unwanted toxins that can lead to cell death and aid in the risk of a variety of diseases. Coconut water can help minimise these bad toxins, fighting infections and leaving your insides healthy!

 

It makes you FEEL great…

Coconut contains significant amounts of magnesium… A key mineral to maintaining healthy brain function, as well as a healthy state of mind! Studies have found that the high amount of magnesium found in coconut water can help alleviate symptoms of depression and assist in uplifting your mood. Drink yourself happy with coconut water!

 

It TASTES great…

Along with all the health benefits coconut water provides, it also tastes absolutely delicious! Coconut water should never be from concentrate and always in its purest form. Its naturally sweet tastes requires no further ingredients and leaves a gorgeous coconut taste in your mouth!

  1. This post is so informative and interesting. I knew coconut water had lots of benefits but I wasn’t sure exactly what they were. I’m still a little unsure about it though, it’s one of those things that I really want to like because it’s so good for me but I just don’t like it. I keep trying it in the hope that I will like it one day! It reminds me a little of milk, which might be strange, but it just really puts me off. I definitly need to try drinking it again though for all these amazing benefits! 🙂
