Nature’s Perfect Isotonic sports or energy drink.

Nature's Perfect Isotonic sports or energy drink, coconut water.

It is amazing to think that the coconut tree is busy nearly 12 to 13 times a year! This makes the tree very productive, producing coconuts all year round, any amount from 40 to 60 a year all from one tree! Due to the name coco-nut we think of it as a nut, well it’s the biggest nut!

There is some confusion between coconut milk and coconut water. Inside a healthy fresh coconut you will find a watery, slightly cloudy, almost clear coconut water. It has a slight nutty taste, anyway this is not coconut milk it is coconut water. Many Asian recipes call for coconut milk which is a thick white liquid made from the flesh of the coconut.

Coconut water, its health benefits

It’s a perfect natural isotonic fluid with the same level of electrolytic balance as we have in our blood. Nature has provided us with the best isotonic, energy and hydrating drink. Coconut water contains more potassium than most sports or energy drinks. Coconut water has less sodium and small amount of sugars, whereas sports and
energy drinks are generally higher in both.

For centuries locals in tropical regions have been drinking coconut water to boost their immune systems and gain vitality. The water can help increase your metabolism, balance your pH levels, help your body detoxify, balance HDL cholesterol levels and replenish fluids after training. Coconut water is safe to give to children and babies.
Consistently drinking coconut water can help to improve the health of the intestines and the mono-laurin in coconut water acts as an antiviral and the mono-glyceride has the ability to kill an assortment of bacteria in the body, as well as fungal infections.

The best way to drink this would be fresh from a coconut and in some states this is possible. But for most people and for convenience coconut water can also be bought in bottles. So the next time you need a sports or energy drink instead go for the 100% natural drink, that will enhance your health, replenish your energy and hydrate you.
