If you’ve been reading my blog since day 1 you’ll know that I was born in Brazil and coconut water is very common there and everyone knows the benefits it has on your health. I’ve been drinking coconut water since childhood and I can tell you there are several qualities that this water has.
COCONUT WATER is the liquid that’s found inside young coconuts before they mature. The water can be drunk directly from fresh harvest fruit but in the U.S it’s often is sold in bottles and tetra packs and is pasteurized and may have added some pulp.
The water from a fresh coconut should be consumed shortly after being exposed to air due to the possible loss of important nutrients.
COCONUT WATER IS NATURAL: IT’S LOW IN CARBS, 99% FAT FREE, LOW IN SUGARS. A serving has about TWICE the amount of potassium as a banana.
