Did you know that most sports drinks are loaded with refined sugar and other not-so-good-for-you ingredients like artificial colors and chemicals? Coconut water, on the other hand, with its abundance of health benefits, may be the only replenishing drink your body really needs.

COCONUT WATER IS:

Low in sugar, practically fat-free, and naturally low-calorie. All this and it tastes sweet and refreshing, too!

  1. Full of amino acids, enzymes, organic acids, and antioxidants.
  2. A rich source of electrolytes and natural salts, including potassium and magnesium.
  3. Rich in naturally occurring vitamins! B vitamins, minerals, zinc, iodine, and manganese, to name a few. Your cells need these to function at their best.
  4. Loaded with plant hormones, otherwise known as cytokinins, which have anti-aging and anti-cancer effects on your body. Who isn’t looking for anti-cancer, anti-aging remedies?
  5. Bonus reason: Coconut water has an alkalizing effect on your body to help correct the cumulative effects of all those acidic foods you consume on a regular basis! (Ask the docs about getting your very own alkaline/acidic analysis test.)

When it comes to the health benefits of natural coconut water, the list is endless. Perhaps that’s why Hawaiians call it “noelani,” meaning, “dew from the heavens.” Oh, and one more thing: coconut water was found to actually shrink kidney stones in a recent study of patients who drank it two to three times a week. That means, instead of having surgery, they were cured naturally.

If you take prescription drugs for a variety of conditions, chances are, with some changes to your diet – like drinking coconut water – you could become medication and pain-free in no time.
