Health benefits

It is a refreshing and hydrating agent containing a high amount of water and electrolytes and nutrients also.

It also contains carbohydrates which makes it sweet in taste. But carbohydrate content is less in the amount you can say 4% per 100 gms and low in calories almost 19 kcal per 100 grams.

It is also popular as a refreshing agent by many sportspersons. It refreshes and hydrates you after mild to moderate exercise and gym activities because of high water and electrolyte content.

Electrolyte is the minerals that help our nerves, muscles, heart, brain, and other cells and tissues to work properly. And coconut water is high in electrolytes like potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, etc. So as a refreshing and hydrating drink, it is a better choice rather than drinks which contains chemicals, high sugar and added artificial flavours and preservatives.

Always choose fresh, organic, young coconut fruit which is available everywhere in the world. And in India, it is easily available along roadsides. Poke the hole in the top, dip the straw and just drink it. When you finish your drink, open the coconut fruit and enjoy the coconut meat which is again good source of fibre, vitamin C, vitamin B and healthy fat.
