Crazy for Coconuts!

You may have thought people’s obsession with coconut water was just another silly health craze. However, that is far from true. Coconut water has multiple benefits and tastes good too!

This nutritious drink has more potassium than four bananas, is naturally fat and cholesterol free, and is extremely hydrating. It comes from the clear liquid that is tapped from the center of young, green coconuts and is low in calories while being naturally sweet.

This thirst-quenching beverage helps remedy dehydration headaches, lowers blood pressure, fights free radicals to help prevent cancer, and contains trans-zeatin, which can be used to treat Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. Coconut water also makes an excellent workout recovery drink and is a much better option than sugary sports drinks. This healthy superstar contains electrolytes, antioxidants, and magnesium making it an ideal way to rehydrate the body.

Raw coconut water straight from the source would be ideal. But since that is not always practical, just try and make sure to buy organic brands and read the labels for any unnecessary additives. Use coconut water in smoothies, juices, or just drink it on it’s own!
