Coconut water is the liquid inside of coconuts and differs from coconut milk. It has a translucent milky white colour and a luscious coconut taste.
Coconut water is bursting with electrolytes - minerals that hydrate and replenish your body. You flush out electrolytes through sweat, and they also decrease when drinking alcohol. This makes the drink especially effective after exercise, and for that hangover you’d rather avoid!
The flavoursome water is abundant in manganese, potassium, amino acids, calcium and B vitamins. These nutrients reduce blood sugar, lower the risk of kidney stones, increase energy, provide stress resilience and detoxify the body. Unlike plain water, coconut water contains calories. So, always consume in moderation.
Health benefits of coconut water
The delicious and nutritious liquid has many health advantages to enhance your wellness. Check out coconut water’s top benefits below:
High in manganese - Manganese shields cells against harmful free radicals to protect your body from inflammatory illness. It also reduces the chance of blood clots and effectively heals wounds.
Full of potassium - You need potassium to turn protein into energy, which lowers fatigue and helps raise energy levels. Therefore, it may be especially effective to drink coconut water in the morning with a high-protein breakfast.
Rich in amino acids - Amino acids are the building blocks for collagen - the most abundant protein in your body. Collagen produces and maintains elasticity in your tendons, muscles, skin and hair for a younger-looking and younger-feeling body.
Excellent for calcium - Calcium is necessary for strong bones and teeth, but not everyone enjoys calcium-rich milk. If that’s you, ditch the dairy and drink coconut water for healthy bones.
A source of vitamin B-Complex - B vitamins decrease stress and enhance mood, making coconut water an effective nutrient for well-being issues, such as stress, anxiety and depression.
Easy ways to use coconut water

Drink plain - The first option is to drink coconut water as it is. Bursting with flavour, you don’t have to add anything for great taste.
Mix into curries - Many curries use coconut, so drop in the beneficial water for a flare of coconut flavour.
Pour into a bath - If your skin is dry and needs hydration, coconut water is your answer. Add a glass to a warm bath and soak in the calcium and vitamin C.
Stir into porridge - Make a delicious, health-boosting coconut porridge to kickstart your day. You can add coconut chunks for extra nutrition.
