The good stuff inside
Young coconuts are one of the highest sources of electrolytes and healthy fats, and are known to support the immune system with their anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties. Coconut water is an all-natural way to hydrate, reduce sodium and add potassium to your diet. According to Kathleen Zelman, MPH, RD, director of nutrition for WebMD, most Americans don't get enough potassium in their diets because they don't eat enough fruits, vegetables or dairy, so coconut water can help fill in the nutritional gaps. The medium-chain fatty acids in coconut meat allow the body to burn fat for energy leaving those who consume it regularly leaner and with more stamina.
