Tender coconut water is the most nutritious wholesome beverage that nature has provided. It has the same level of electrolyte balance, as we have in our blood. It’s the fluid of life.
It is naturally sterile , contains 94% water, supplies an array of minerals & vitamins (potassium, sodium, calcium, phosphorous, iron, copper, sulphur and chlorides, vitamin C and vitamins of B group – B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7 and B9) and antioxidants, is relatively low in calories, and has no cholesterol(plant products do not have cholesterol).
Some are concerned about the sugar content of this slightly sweet beverage. Recent research shows it actually exhibits blood sugar lowering properties in an experimental model of diabetes. 100g of tender coconut water has around 18 calories and 3 g of sugar. This 3 g of sugar is both glucose & fructose. Fructose does not need insulin for being processed and another approx. 1.5 g of glucose does not do any harm, even to a diabetic.
Some of the most significant and useful components in coconut water are cytokinins, which are a class of phytohormones. Some cytokinins have showed significant anti-ageing, anti-carcinogenic, and anti-thrombotic effects.
Few studies show that tender coconut water dilates blood vessels, improve blood flow and regulate blood pressure in humans.
A handful of studies on exercise and coconut water suggests that it is a natural sports drink that can be consumed before, during or after a workout to replenish electrolytes and re-hydration.
Coconut water has been extensively studied by the scientific community & its beneficial properties to health has been proved beyond doubt.
Do not miss an opportunity to enjoy this wonderful gift of nature. –
