Coconut water is the clear liquid found inside a young, green coconut which is usually about the size of a basketball. Ideally, young coconuts are harvested at 5–7 months of age, to contain the most water.
As the coconut matures, the liquid is replaced with coconut “meat.” The greatest nutrient health benefits of coconut water comes from drinking the water of the young coconut, not the mature coconut milk, which is generally lower in nutrients.
Coconut Water has been used for IV hydration due to its high electrolyte content and the fact that it’s sterile if used directly from the inside of the coconut. People all over the world enjoy coconut water for its multiple benefits and sweet taste.
Recently, coconut water’s health benefits continue to be touted, as many marketers call it “nature’s sports drink” and a “life enhancer.” The liquid inside the coconut contains approximately 46 calories per cup, 10 grams of natural sugar, with little protein and zero fat. It contains multiple vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals that are ideal for human health.
The primary nutrient in coconut water is potassium. It contains approximately 600 milligrams (12 percent DV), making it a high electrolyte beverage. Coconut water also contains a small amount of sodium, about 40 milligrams and up to 10 percent of your daily calcium and magnesium needs.
Other health benefits of coconut water include:
* Lowered blood pressure
* Weight loss
* Increased athletic performance
* Boosted energy
* Lowered cholesterol
* Reduced cellulite
* Relax muscle tension
