3 Great Reasons Why You Should Drink Coconut Water

Posted on July 04, 2016 by Melanie Brown

Today I went shopping at our local supermarket and I was approached by an exotically dressed demonstrator who wanted me to try a new product. I asked what it was and he told me it was coconut water. It was the “new health drink”.

I was surprised because I have always known about coconut water and thought back to when I was a kid. I had visited Jamaica and remember it being so hot that I almost passed out.

There was a man by the beach side who beckoned me over. He had obviously seen that I was not used to the relentless heat and was desperate for a drink.

He was holding a machete and an object which I could not quite make out. The machete was used to swiftly cut the top off some kind of green plant.  The man offered me a green object and told me it was a coconut and told me to drink from it.

Oh my goodness! The liquid was cool and refreshing and certainly quenched my thirst. It was coconut water. The same coconut water the demonstrator had offered me. The only difference was it was now in a carton.

Coconut water is now becoming popular because it is a natural drink and it has nutritional benefits.

Here are 3 reasons why you should drink coconut water: -

  1. Coconut water is good for hydrating the body. It keeps the skin soft and supple
  2. The water contains anti-aging properties. Cytokinins is a plant growth hormone which is said to slow down the aging process.
  3. Skin protective antioxidants are contained in coconut water. These help to fight damaging free radicals which are caused by sun exposure.

So if you want a great nutritional drink, give it a try!
