The repercussions of coconut water for our body are several and positive, such as: improving cognitive function, favoring the nervous system and providing us with potassium.
This liquid obtained naturally when extracted from young coconuts, is composed of 95% water and 5% of important nutrients.
In addition to refresh and quench our thirst, causes a number of positive impacts on our body. We tell you below:
- Improves digestion:
For several years, coconut water has been used as a digestive tonic, ideal for treating and preventing stomach problems. It also helps improve the body’s ability to absorb nutrients and improve the digestion of its bioactive enzymes. However, it should be noted that taking it in excess can cause a mild laxative.
- Strengthens the immune system:
Its high content of lauric acid makes coconut water, a powerful antiviral and antibacterial remedy. It helps fight fungal infections, hepatitis C, herpes and HIV.
- Causes positive impacts on the heart:
Because of its high potassium content, we can control high blood pressure and prevent heart attacks.
- Improves blood circulation:
For some time, coconut water has been used as a cardiac tonic because of its ability to prevent blood clots and reduce cholesterol levels.
- It provides anti-aging benefits:
Some call it “the fountain of eternal youth.” Coconut water contains a group of plant hormones called cytokinins, which some studies indicate may have an anti-aging effect on human cells.
- Better and greater hydration for the body:
Coconut water is not only refreshing, but very healthy, since it does not contain chemical additives that can harm your body. It also contains essential electrolytes for our body and is a rich source of potassium, magnesium, calcium, sodium and phosphorus.
- Decrease acidity levels.
By consuming coconut water, we are lowering the pH of body fluids, which means that we eliminate the acidity of our body.
- Energy source for the brain:
As we have already indicated, a single glass contains much more potassium than a banana, which helps regulate blood pressure, but also plays a very important role in muscle function. To this we must add the natural electrolytes that improve the functioning of the system and nerve transmission, as well as cognitive function.
