pathmedical Nutrition

Coconut water is a famous beach-day treat for those who are familiar with most tropical settings.

Coconut water has gained popularity lately. Celebrities, athletes and fitness coaches believe in the powers provided through coconuts. There’s more to this island staple that most people aren’t aware of.

Source of Hydration: Coconut water is slightly sweet with a subtle, nutty flavor. It’s also fairly low in calories and carbs. The water is freshest when it comes directly from the coconut. You can also buy bottled coconut water at most grocery stores. However, be sure to read the ingredients to verify you’re getting 100% coconut water. Some bottled brands contain added sugar or flavoring agents.

Beneficial After Exercise: Coconut water may be the perfect beverage for restoring hydration and replenishing electrolytes lost during exercise. Two studies found that coconut water restored hydration after exercise better than water and equal to high-electrolyte sports beverages (1).

May Reduce Blood Pressure: Coconut water may be great for controlling blood pressure. Coconut water contains 600 mg of potassium in 8 ounces. Potassium has been shown to lower blood pressure in people with high or normal blood pressure (2).

Coconut water is a delicious, nutritious and natural beverage that’s extremely good for you.
