  1. coconutWATERyumIf you can’t get it fresh from the tropics NO PROBLEM: Packaged coconut water is invading supermarkets. (Not to be confused with milk or coconut oil) Its popularity has grown thanks to high performance athletes and celebrities recommending it as the best remedy for a hangover, long workouts and malnutrition problems.
  2. Natural hydration. Coconut water has electrolytes and carbohydrates that are easily assimilated. It’s like a sports drink but with many more advantages. For example, in one ounce of coconut water has 61 mg of potassium, whereas in an average sports drink there is only 3.75 mg. What’s more, coconut water contains no dyes or preservatives objectionable.
  3. Nutritional based sugar. Children and adults with special diets can consume coconut water without worry, as well as being a good source of vitamin B and ascorbic acid. It contains only 60 calories (three times less sugar than fruit juice, and nine times less a gas). To avoid surprises always read the label and check that the juice has no added sugars or syrups.
  4. Ideal for extreme situations. High performance have proven the benefits of coconut water. Mixed with 50% water and enriched with protein supplements it helps regulate temperature, energy and minerals lost in long hours of exercise, extreme heat and humidity.
  5. Antinausea Juice. Coconut water is the best remedy for sensitive travelers and pregnant women. Its mineral helps combat nausea and prevents fluid retention.
  6. Kills parasites, balances and strengthens the body.Coconut water strengthens the immune system, facilitates the absorption of nutrients in the blood and combat acidification of cells [one of the causes of cancer]. Since ancient times, it was given to children to kill intestinal parasites.
  7. Better than cow’s milk. Coconut water contains higher protein concentration (alanine, arginine, cystine, lysine, tyrosine and serene) than commercial milk, so it is recommended for those suffering from lactose intolerance drink or deficiency calcium and magnesium.
  8. Burns and dryness. Coconut water is moisturizing and relaxing, so is used to relieve mild sun burn and skin dryness.
