Until just a few years ago, nobody knew about the personal benefits of coconut water. Except maybe the Polynesians.
Here are 7 reasons it’s become the new “overnight” sensation for the health-minded and beauty conscious:
Secret #1: Shed fat
Coconut water has been proven to suppress the appetite. It makes you feel full because of its rich nature (even though it’s deficient in fat.) That translates to fewer calories.
Secret #2: Who else wants blemish-free, moisturized, toned skin?
For those with acne or other blemishes, topical application of coconut water can clear up, reduce pore size and tone the skin. It also moisturizes the skin from within when ingested orally. It explains why beauty products contain generous amounts of coconut extract!
Secret #3: Upset tummy?
Irritable bowel? Coconut water has been known to provide quick relief. Because of its high concentration of fiber, it aids in the prevention of indigestion and reduces acid reflux.
Secret #4: Better for you than Gatorade
The ingredients in coconut water are more effective at hydrating the human body than those of sports and energy drinks. As you are aware, the human body loses mineral-rich fluids during rigorous exercise. Hydration is a must. And coconut water serves as an excellent replacement medium with 294 mg of potassium and 5 mg of natural sugar per glass.
Secret #5: Reduces blood pressure
Unusually unbalanced levels of electrolytes can often result in high blood pressure. Because coconut water contains an adequate supply of each, it can be used as a balancing mechanism.
Secret #6: Packed with essential minerals
Unlike any other beverage on the market, coconut water contains five essential electrolytes present in the human body. These include calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, and sodium.
Secret #7: Can be used instead of human blood!
Coconut water, which has properties similar to human plasma, can be used intravenously in extreme emergencies to rehydrate the body quickly.
