Lowers Blood Pressure
Controlling high blood pressure is another huge benefit of coconut water. The vitamin C, potassium and magnesium content helps balance out the negative effects of sodium in the diet.
The alkalizing effect of coconut water helps restore pH in the body. Stress, and a diet high in acid forming foods can contribute to acidic pH. The increase in levels can cause low energy and hinder the body from absorbing vitamins and minerals.
Rehydrates The Body
The electrolytes in in coconut water is similar to that of a sports drink. Therefore, it has incredible benefits in regards to rehydrating the body.
Promotes Weight Loss
Low calorie, and easy to digest, this drink is ideal for weight loss. The bioactive enzymes also boost a persons metabolism and aid digestion.
Reduces Heart Disease
Coconut water helps reduce the risk of heart disease by lowering low density lipoprotein (also known as LDL or "bad" cholesterol), and elevates high density lipoprotein (also known as HDL or the "good" cholesterol). It also has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti platelet properties which improves circulation in the body, lowering the risk of strokes and heart attacks by reducing plaque in the arteries.
The water contains something called cytokinins which have effects on the aging process. It affects the cells and tissues, reducing the risk of age related diseases.
The water can also be used as a facial. Mix it with a bit of sandalwood powder to make a thick paste. Apply the paste on your face and let it dry, then rinse it off. Ta-da! Beautiful, and younger looking skin.
Works As A Diuretic
Coconut water works as a diuretic, which promotes urine flow, and cleanses your body of toxins. it also helps dissolve certain types of kidney stones, by its high potassium content.
Regulates Blood Sugar
Amino acids and dietary fiber help regulate blood sugar, and are found in coconut water, all of which improve the sensitivity of insulin.
Because of the incredible rehydration affects of coconut water, it helps relieve headaches, even migraines. The high levels of magnesium also reduce the frequency of the headaches.
