6 Reasons To Fall In Love With Coconut Water

6 Reasons To Fall In Love With Coconut Water | Nourished Existence

Confessed coconut addict right here.

I live for coconut. I love its lauric acids, medium-chain triglycerides, and silky, buttery taste.

If you haven’t tried coconut water you’re missing out!

Coconuts are the fruit of the coconut palm and coconut water is the clear liquid found inside of a young coconut. This differs from coconut milk or creme, which is the white flesh of the fruit.

Here are 6 reasons that are guaranteed to make you fall in love with coconut water.

1. Coconut Water is Naturally Purified

Coconut water is naturally filtered, for nine months, through the dense fibers of the coconut. This creates a nutritious, pure, and refreshing isotonic beverage.

2. Coconut Water is Full of Electrolytes and Extra Hydrating

Isotonic means that it contains essential salts and minerals in a concentration that matches that found within the human body. As a result, coconut water is very quickly and easily absorbed into human cells.

3. Coconut Water is Brimming With Nutrients

Coconut water is naturally low in calories, has five essential electrolytes (Gatorade only has two), is a significant source of potassium, and has no natural fat. Coconut water also boasts significant amounts of Vitamin C, B-Vitamins, Calcium, Riboflavin, Dietary Fiber, and Magnesium.

4. Coconut Water is Naturally Antimicrobial and Antibacterial

The nutritional properties of coconut water help to balance the ratio of good-to-bad bacteria in the digestive track as well as boost the immune system, ward of disease, and can be beneficial in fighting infections.

5. Coconut Water is an All-Natural Hangover Cure

Nobody likes a hangover and most “remedies” are not very healthy. The morning after killer headache is a direct results of dehydration. Due to the rehydrating and nutritious properties that coconut waters provides, it makes for the perfect all-natural hangover cure.

6. Coconut Water is Delicious!

Coconut water is refreshing and cool and blends well with many other ingredients. When blended with other fruits, coconut water allows the fruit to take center stage in regards to taste while still providing 100% nutritious quality.

It took me awhile to acquire a taste for natural coconut water. Try O.N.E Coconut Water with a splash of fruit. O.N.E does not add in sugar or use concentrate. My favorite is Pink Guava!

Something that I find particularly amazing is that, in medical emergencies, coconut water has been known to be used intravenously when conventional hydration fluids were not available.

Is there anything coconut can’t do?
