Coconuts... an unlikely source of good nutrition

If you have been looking for a refreshing drink that is a healthy alternative to your usual beverage, then look no more! The secret is out; coconut water is an unlikely source of many great health and restorative benefits, not to mention it is low in fat, sugar and carbohydrate content. It is an all around good for you drink and a unique change from the ordinary.

Coconut water is an all-natural isotonic beverage, and works great for rehydrating the body and replenishing necessary fluids to the body whenever needed. It raises your metabolism and promotes weight loss, yet it also keeps the body cool and regulates the proper temperature. Coconut water helps control diabetes, treats kidney stones, cleanses the digestive tract, and boosts the immune system aiding in helping the body fight off serious viruses like influenza.
 
Coconut water is comparable to whole milk; however it contains no cholesterol. It is healthier than orange juice, but lower in calories and still biologically pure. It contains less sodium than many sports drinks, and is beneficial in providing a wealth of energy. The best kept secret to staying healthy, looking great and feeling it too!
 
So next time you are in need of a thirst quencher, grab a coconut!
