Know more: Benefits of coconut water

Tuesday, October 11, 2011

Coconut water is nature’s purest and healthiest drink after water. And several international and Indian celebrities thank coconut water for their radiant and healthy skin. Samreen Samad tells you about the benefits
  • Coconut water contains electrolytes which makes it a great sports drink because it provides instant hydration. Did you know that coconut is a universal donor and has properties that are identical to human plasma? Many lives from third world countries have been saved using coconut water as intravenous hydration fluid when medical saline was unavailable. That means, drinking coconut water is like getting an instant blood transfusion!
  • Coconut water also helps give you instant relief from conditions such as acid reflux, heartburn and diarrhea. It helps keep your body cool and regulates body temperature.
  • Drinking coconut water regularly will clear your body of toxins and boost your immunity. It helps increase your metabolism, promotes weight loss and helps to cure kidney stones and destroy intestinal worms.
  • Coconut water is antifungal, antiviral and antimicrobial. It is a rich source of natural fibre, natural calcium, magnesium and natural potassium. It helps blood circulation, digestion and detoxification. Coconut water is low in fat, calories and no cholesterol, making it better than whole fat milk and juices.
  • Coconut water can be used externally for beauty purposes as well. It works as a light moisturiser and is suitable for all skin types. You can add coconut water to your bath or mix it with your shower gel. It can also be added to your body lotion, shampoo and conditioner. Coconut water is also a great natural toner and helps clear up skin conditions such as acne and blackheads.
