5 Reasons to Drink Coconut Water

Drop that energy drink! Here's why you might want to drink coconut water instead:

1. It prevents dehydration.

Coconut water helps maintain the body’s fluid levels and its potassium content helps maintain water pressure within cells and blood. In developing countries where clean water is scarce, coconut water can be life-saving and save people suffering from diarrhea, dysentery, or cholera.

2. It fuels your brain and muscles.

Due to its electrolyte content, coconut water improves nervous system function and nerve transmission. It also helps prevent muscle spasms and cramps.

3. It fights aging.

Coconut water contains a compound called cytokinin, which protects cells from aging and cancer.

4. It aids digestion.

Improves digestion and metabolism through bioactive enzymes. It can also aid the absorption of food

5. It supports immune function.

Its Lauric acid content is anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-viral. It boosts the immune system in fighting infection whilst helping to eradicate intestinal worms and candida.
