Today’s health tip: Benefits of coconut water


Coconut water is the juice found in the center of a young, green coconut. It helps nourish the fruit.

As the coconut matures, some of the juice remains in liquid form while the rest ripens into the solid white flesh known as coconut meat.

It forms naturally in the fruit and contains 94% water and very little fat.

It should not be confused with coconut milk, which is made by adding water to grated coconut meat. Coconut milk contains about 50% water and is very high in coconut fat.

Less sugar and carbohydrates than most juices. It also has more minerals and electrolytes like sodium and potassium. 

More than 10 times the amount of potassium of most sports drinks

Contains less than 5 percent of your recommended amount of both calcium and magnesium.
