Have you tried coconut water? It’s tasty, it’s refreshing and it is oh so good for you.
Don’t believe me? Open a new window and search the words “coconut water” right now. Don’t worry, I’ll be right here when you get back. See? So what are the benefits of drinking coconut water? Here are just a few:
The human body is about 70% water. So, it’s no surprise that staying and keeping hydrated is of paramount importance not only for our survival but, our very vitality. Not too mention, hydrated skin is plump, smooth and has less fine lines.
Some people forget about those little things (calcium, sodium, potassium, magnesium), but trust me your body doesn’t. At the basis of most chemical reactions in the body are electroltyes. But, since you are not here to read about science I’ll make it simple. Heart and muscle. Essentially the heart (yes, the heart is a muscle) as well as other muscle groups need electrolytes for muscle contraction and recovery. Electrolytes are at the very foundation of how the heart works. If you have every experienced muscle cramping or had a “charley horse”, then you know first-hand what a deficiency in these electrolytes can cause.
Coconut water is not only good at quenching thirst but, it is satisfying too. It has less sugar, no fat but still all yum! Oh, and speaking of coconut water, if you are fortunate enough to drink some coconut water straight from a coconut, make sure you get that coconut jelly.
If you have a hard time drinking water or you want to know how to get your kids to drink more water, then give coconut water a try. It has a slight sweet flavor with a hint of nuttiness. If you haven’t tried it yet, then I want you too, you owe it to yourself.
And don’t worry. If your handsome father-in law can’t pick you a coconut from his own tree (in his backyard), and wield a machete like a skilled samurai… then you can go to your local grocery store and select from tons of brands that have already done the hard part for you.
