Health Benefits of Coconut Water

Coconut Water

Coconut water seems to be everywhere and everyone is using it.  We thought it would be fun to look at why this is America’s new health craze.  It is dubbed “Mother Nature’s sports drink.”
What is coconut water?
Coconut water is the clear liquid from the center from the young green coconuts.  It has a sweet, nutty taste and it has easily digested carbohydrate in the form of sugar and electrolytes.  It promises to help the body to recover from such conditions as hangovers to cancer and kidney stones.
