Coconut water is the liquid that comes out of the fresh coconut. It is slightly sweet and very tasty, plus it is one of the best sources of natural hydration! The sugars, minerals and salts that come from coconut water are very nourishing to the body, so it is essentially a real-food sports beverage. Try it over ice on a hot day, or make ice pops out of it!
In traditional Ayurvedic medicine, coconut water is believed to help digestion, urination, and even semen production. It has also traditionally been used to treat dehydration and given as ceremonial gifts throughout the tropics. While it may not be a miracle cure, it does have many health benefits.
