The health benefits of coconut water

June 19 2020

Known for its concentrations of electrolytes, minerals and vitamins, coconut water has swept the world as a miracle drink.

Coconut water is the clear liquid found inside green, immature coconuts. These younger coconuts are favoured for their water as it is tastier, plentiful in volume and easier to access by chopping the top off the softer shell. More mature coconuts have a harder husk and less water inside.

Coconut water's natural electrolytes make it more than a match for well-known sports drinks, because, without any additives, it is safer to drink without causing nausea or an upset stomach after a heavy workout.

Coconut water is a relatively low-calorie drink compared to sugary, fizzy drinks or juices. It also has more minerals like potassium, calcium and magnesium. Potassium helps to balance fluids and electrolytes in the body, especially during exercise. It also balances out sodium's effect on blood pressure and may even lower it. Calcium is vital for strong bones and teeth and, after exercise, your bones use calcium to get stronger and repair. Magnesium helps to relax muscles and cramping. It also helps energy production and supports organ function.

In addition to its hydrating benefits, coconut water contains antioxidants that help to neutralise oxidative stress and free radicals created by exercise. The hormones that help plants grow are also found in coconut water. These "cytokinins" are believed to have anti-ageing and cancer-fighting properties.

The bottom line is that coconut water is a great way to hydrate after a hard workout - try one after a visit to our fitness centre! Seek out fresh, unprocessed coconut water to get the most anti-oxidents and a true taste of the tropics. You can find young coconuts for sale everywhere in Thailand - just ask for one at the babble & rum bar - they are delicious!
