At any given point of time would you trade your health and vitality or your craving for a gulp of carbonated drink as far as thirst is concerned? While health is the preferred choice, many people oblivious to the harm that carbonated drinks entail such as obesity, kidney damage, stroke, increase in blood pressure and certain cancers, consume them anyway.
A healthy alternative to any industry manufactured drinks is a glass of natural tender coconut water. Coconut water is a very refreshing drink in any weather.
The juice is packed with simple sugar, electrolytes, and minerals to replenish hydration levels within the body. Research studies suggest that cytokines (e.g., kinetin and trans-zeatin) in coconut water showed significant anti-aging, anti-carcinogenic, and anti-thrombotic effects. In recent years, coconut water has been marketed as a natural energy or sports drink due to its high potassium and mineral content. The drink is highly recommended by fitness and nutrition experts as a re-hydrating agent. “Tender coconut water is safe for pregnant women, infants and has medicinal value in eliminating many diseases. Its high concentration in electrolytes can eliminate toxins, recharge one’s entire system and improve the body’s immunity,” says Dr G Kasturi, a practising Gynaecologist, Obstetrician and family and general health counselor. So ditch carbonated drinks and drink your way to health by consuming tender coconut water regularly.
