I also did not know how nutritious coconut water is! So not only am I drinking something that tastes delicious, it's good for me too!
Here are just some benefits of coconut water:
- Coconut water is filled with vitamins, antioxidants, amino acids, enzymes, electrolytes, and minerals (particularly calcium, magnesium and potassium). Because of its high electrolyte content, it makes the perfect drink during and after working out!
- Coconut water is effective in relieving dehydration, fatigue,
constipation, and other digestive disturbances, kidney and bladder
disorders, and vision problems such as glaucoma and cataracts.
- Research shows that coconut water can improve blood circulation, lower
elevated blood pressure, and reduce risk of heart attacks and strokes.
- Coconut water also has an alkazlising effect on the body, helping to counteract or balance the effects of acidifying foods which are so common in our diets.
I also have to share this with you guys - LOOK AT ALL THESE COOL FLAVOURS OF GUM!
