The health benefits of raw coconut water have been well noted since the practice of Ayurveda began thousands of years ago. Since then, coconut water has been recognised in India as a beneficial natural drink that can be included in a daily routine as part of a healthy lifestyle. While some of the health claims are well supported with scientific research, other benefits lack sufficient evidence and are more speculative. You can find out more about coconut water's long list of health benefits on the Indian Government's Coconut Development Board website. In the meantime, here are a couple of coconut water health benefits that we are particularly excited about:
When you sweat, your body doesn't just lose water, it also loses vital salts that help your body function properly. Intelligent hydration relies on replenishing everything that your body loses, not just the water. Coconut water contains lots of salts, also known as electrolytes, which is why it is a perfect drink when you are exercising or live in a hot part of the country. If you go to the gym or walk / jog outdoors, you can now carry the goodness of coconut water with you in a more convenient shell... with COCOFLY!
Low Calorie and naturally Fat Free!
It's not only about what's in coconut water that counts - sometimes it helps to know what coconut water doesn't have: raw coconut water is low in calories and naturally fat free, making it a great drink to have over and over throughout the day, without worrying about getting fat! What is more, Cocofly has no added sugar, so our drink can also be enjoyed as part of a low sugar diet!
When you are recovering from an illness, what does your doctor say? Drink coconut water! Coconut water gives you all the nourishment you need to fight your way back to full health whether you have a common cold or you contracted cholera. It is for good reason that doctors even recommend coconut water for pregnant women - it is simply the best way to keep your body in peak condition! Did you know that during The Second World War, doctors in the Pacific used to connect patients directly to coconuts when IV drips ran out in hospitals!
