You don't like water? Try some coconut water!

Isn't the summer heat getting you down? Even a minute's walk in scorching sun makes me a little dizzy. So even though I live about 15 minutes away from my workplace, I'm frazzled at the end of the commute. And I take a rickshaw :|

Anyway, my Dad has suddenly got it into his head to get me some tender coconut water daily. And wow, it's made such a big difference! So I decided to do a bit of research about coconut water.

Here are some of the health benefits of drinking coconut water:

Thirst-quencher:

A draught of tender coconut water is super hydrating

Energy Drink:

Rich in minerals, vitamins, and electrolytes, it gives your energy levels an instant boost

Quiets Hunger Pangs:

Tender coconut water post-breakfast keeps you sated till lunch-time (only if you eat at noon). So it helps curb your hunger cravings. And hey, it's naturally sweet! So coconut water also takes care of your sugar cravings

Cleanses your Skin:

Aha! That's got the attention of pimply teens! :P Apparently applying coconut water on your God-awful zits and spots clears up your skin.

18 Forever:

While staying 18 forever is impossible, you can at least slow down the signs that herald the onset of aging. According to some research or the other, cytokinins in tender coconut water slowdown the effects of aging.

There are other health benefits of drinking coconut water too, like it helps dissolve kidney stones and ease your hangover symptoms. This low-fat health drink is also beneficial for your heart's health.

So drink away to stay hydrated and healthy this summer :)
