There are always new products hitting the shelves claiming to be the new holy grail of and wellbeing and longevity. Many of which fizzle out before their expiry dates. Coconut water however is here to stay!
We're all guilty of indulging in what seems to be a meaningless coconut drink hacked open by a beach-dweller wielding a gigantic machete whist vacationing somewhere exotic, but i'm sure at the time very few of us were aware at time that we were doing much more that just clenching our thirst!
The health benefits of drinking coconut water:
- It aids weight-loss
- Regulates blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol
- Is great for digestive and urinary health
- Slows down ageing
- Can help in the fight against acne
- Can help cure a hangover
- Facilitates Digestion
- Boosts Hydration
- Reduces Blood Pressure
- Is rich in Nutrients
Do yourself a favour and ditch your regular workout Gatorade for a coconut water.
