How does coconut water taste

That tastes like summer! 6 reasons why coconut water is so healthy

Coconut water is the favorite drink of many Hollywood stars and has long been an indispensable part of the supermarket shelves. Coconut water is the ultimate thirst quencher and a particularly tasty alternative to water. The clear liquid is packed with nutrients that are insanely healthy for the human body.

We have collected 6 reasons why you should drink coconut water regularly.

1. Coconut water - the ultimate sports drink

The pure coconut water comes from the young, still green coconuts and is rich in potassium and antioxidants. These ingredients are really good for the human body and therefore coconut water puts conventional sports drinks in the shade. Especially those who do a lot of sport and lose a lot of fluids and vital minerals can replenish their stores.

Coconut water can serve as an ideal alternative to isotonic sports drinks and contains at least twice as much potassium as these. In addition, coconut water is low in calories and contains significantly less sugar. Although coconut water contains less sodium than sports drinks, our society as a whole takes in enough of it through salt in our other diets. However, it is not enough to just drink coconut water for your daily fluid requirements. You should still drink enough water for this.

Here you can buy coconut water on Amazon.

Mix all ingredients into a delicious smoothie and enjoy!

2. Does coconut water help you lose weight?

Of course, coconut water is not a miracle cure for weight loss. But compared to coconut milk, the fat content in coconut water is extremely low, so that you can enjoy a lot of it without a guilty conscience. Supposedly it is supposed to curb and satiate the appetite in a completely natural way. Due to the high potassium content, toxins are supposed to be excreted faster so that the body is detoxified - coconut water is not only healthy, it is also considered a real detox drink.

3. Beautiful skin with coconut water

For those of you struggling with acne or other blemishes, you should take advantage of the properties of the tropical fruit. As a facial toner, the coconut water is supposed to clarify the skin and provide it with additional moisture. Regardless of whether you drink the coconut water or use it externally, your skin will thank you for it. There are now a large number of cosmetic products, such as face creams, hair care products and lotions, that contain coconut extract. By the way, you can also take care of yourself all around with coconut oil.

5. Coconut water has a positive effect on the head and stomach

Coconut water contains a high proportion of fiber and is said to reduce digestive disorders and help against heartburn. The coconut water should have an alkaline effect on the body and neutralize the pH values. In addition, coconut water is said to help against headaches and migraines due to its magnesium content.

6. Coconut water is said to lower blood pressure

Coconut water is also said to lower blood pressure. One or two glasses a day are enough for this. The reason: The potassium contained in it lowers the negative effects of sodium and brings the electrolyte balance back into balance. A few years ago, the West Indian Medical Journal published a study showing exactly these positive properties of coconut water.

The highlight is and remains the taste

Coconut water is rich in minerals, ensures a balanced electrolyte balance and has many other good properties. Of course, it is not a miracle cure or medicine.

So simply enjoy the best thing about coconut water: the taste! Because coconut water simply tastes fresh like sun, beach and vacation and that's why we love it so much, especially in the hot season!
