I’m sure every Nigerian youth was once told by their parent that drinking coconut water would make them retarded, I’m pretty sure you believed them and you shy away from ever drinking coconut water. Our parents probably told us that lie because they wanted the coconut water to themselves and most likely we’d tell our kids the same lies. That being said, here are 5 major reasons why drinking coconut water is the BOMB.
Benefits of Pure coconut water:
1. Has the potential to lower bad cholesterol
2. Extremely rich in Potassium (more potassium than 4 medium-sized bananas)
3. Has better hydrating properties in form of electrolytes than most sports drinks on the market
4. According to Barbara Mendez, RPh, MS, an NYC-based nutritionist and registered pharmacist. “Fresh coconut contains enzymes that help to detoxify and repair the body”
5. Coconut water is TASTY!
