Benefits of Coconut Water

As Trini's, we really need to take advantage of all the fresh produce we're surrounded by.  Unlike the Americans who pay more for organic.. we're surrounded by organic, sometimes in our own backyard!

Coconut water a natural isotonic beverage that is full of electrolytes, calcium, potassium, and magnesium.  It replaces the fluids and mineral that the body loses during physical activities, which is the reason why me and my honey drink fresh coconut water after we run.  It also helps to increase the rate of metabolism by providing more oxygen to your body.

Benefits when consumed regularly:
  • Naturally Boost Immune System
  • Improves Intestinal Health
  • Increases Metabolism & Weight Loss
  • Balances Body PH
  • Detoxify & Fight Viruses
  • Stops Fatigue
  • Prevents Hypertension
  • Controls Diabetes
  • Aids in Circulation
  • Reduces Cancer Risk
  • Treats Kidney Stones
  • Eases Stomach Pain & Vomiting
Beauty Benefits:
  • This natural water is best for acne and blackheads also. This is a natural toning and cleansing mask for oily skin.
  • The coconut is known for being a light moisturizer that also decreases excessive oil on the skin, which could make it beneficial for smoothing out combination skin as well. Add this water to a bath, or mix it with liquid shower gel. It could also be added to lotion as well as hair conditioner or shampoo for oily hair.
