It's has been used for everything, from a medicinal tonic in tropical lotions to sports recovery drinks, because of its high content of potassium and antioxidants. Coconut water has way less sugar than any other sports drinks and much less sugar than sodas and most fruit juices. It's a better option for kids and adults looking for a beverage.
It is the most natural way to replenish the supply of electrolytes in our body and prevent dehydration. Think about the 10 teaspoons of added sugar in your average soda or fruit juice and remember Coconut water has no added sugar at all.
Hawaiians refer to coconut water as “Noelani”, which means ‘Dews from the heavens’. The name is totally justified. Once you learn about the benefits of coconut water, you'll be nodding your head in agreement.
Drinking coconut water regularly is a natural, non-fat, no added sugar way to rehydrate & replenish your body . It contains a whole lot of minerals and nutrients that are needed to sustain life and of course they're all naturally in the 'nut'. What other drink can you think of that comes already 'perfect'? Add nothing as everything is already inside. Now that's really what might be considered 'nature's bounty' which is probably why in other Southeast Asian regions the coconut tree is known as the 'tree of life'.
