Coconut water is one of the most hydrating drinks nature has made. It is so nutritious for your body, you won’t even believe it.
In this article, you will learn what coconut water is, what its benefits are, how to use it, some delicious recipes that include it and how you can enjoy it by drinking Organifi Pure.
Coconut water is also known as nature’s Gatorade. It is a popular drink that is abundant in electrolytes.
It is the liquid that comes from the inside of young coconuts that are ideally harvested at 5-7 months when they are the size of a basketballs and contain the most liquid.
More mature coconuts have less water inside. As the coconut matures, coconut ‘meat’ - a thick fibrous flesh - replaces the water. The mix of the remaining water and this coconut meat is what turns into coconut milk later. All parts of the coconut are delicious and nutritious though. If it’s coconut, you simply can't go wrong.
Coconut water has been consumed for centuries in tropical areas of the world for hydration and for remedying health issues. In Sanskrit, it’s known as the ‘kalpa vriksha,’ or the ‘tree that gives all that’s necessary for living.’ Coconut water can give you life and that’s pretty powerful.
Coconut water is so hydrating that it can be used in emergency situations when an IV is not available to replenish electrolytes. Of course, if you are dealing with a serious health issue, visit your doctor. However, coconut water is excellent for minor dehydration after a workout, on a hot day, or even if you have the stomach flu.
Coconut water is relatively low in calories. One cup has 60 calories. It is an incredibly rich source of potassium with 420 mg a cup, which makes it the perfect post-workout drink. It is also rich in calcium (41 mg), magnesium (24 mg) and phosphorus (19 mg).
Coconut water is the perfect drink to maintain your electrolyte levels and to help with stress, fatigue and muscle relaxation.
You can find young coconuts at ethnic supermarkets and at health food stores at times. It is much easier to buy coconut water in a bottle. There are plenty of brands to choose from.
Coconut water is amazing as it. You can simply enjoy it straight up from the coconut or the bottle, or you can also:
