For more than 4,000 years, coconut water has been revered as a natural source of nutrition, wellness, beauty and hydration. Found throughout tropic and subtropic areas around the world, the coconut is known for its great versatility as seen in the many domestic, commercial, and industrial uses of its different parts. Coconuts which are part of the daily diet of many people are different from any other fruits because they contain a large quantity of "water" and when immature they are known as tender-nuts or jelly-nuts and may be harvested for their juice.
Coconut water, not to be confused with the far richer coconut milk, is the clear, nut flavored juice stored in the interior or endosperm of very young (green) coconuts. Coconut water has long been a staple drink in Southeast Asian nations and is one of the nature's most refreshing drinks consumed worldwide for its nutritious and health benefiting properties.
Coconut's delicious water is obtained by opening a tender, green, healthy, and undamaged coconut. The liquid is clear, sweet, and sterile and composed of unique chemicals such as simple sugars, vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, enzymes, amino acids, and cytokine. In general, young and slightly immature nuts are harvested for drinking purpose when they are about 5-7 months of age.
Fat-free, cholesterol-free, low-calorie, super-hydrating, naturally rich in electrolytes, the benefits of coconut water, seem endless. Dubbed "nature's sports drink" and "life-enhancer" by marketers, its no wonder why celebrities have replaced their acai berry drinks and Kabbalah water with coconut water.
In times of famine and war, coconut water has been used as an intravenous fluid and saved many lives. It's the only natural substance that can be safely injected into the human blood stream. Coconut water is commonly offered to patients with diarrhea in many tropic regions to replace fluid loss from the gastrointestinal tract and reduce the need for intravenous therapy. The osmolarity of tender coconut water is slightly greater than that of WHO recommended ORS (Oral Rehydration Therapy) osmolarity. Presence of other biological constituents like amino acids, enzymes, minerals, and fatty acids may account for this higher osmolarity. However, unlike WHO-ORS, its water is very low in sodium and chlorides, but rich in sugars and amino acids.
Coconut water is composed of many naturally occurring bioactive enzymes such as acid phosphatase, catalase, dehydrogenase, diastase, peroxidase, RNA polymerases etc. Altogether, these enzymes aid in digestion and metabolism.
Despite very light consistency, its water has much better composition of minerals like calcium, iron, manganese, magnesium, and zinc than some of fruits like oranges.
Coconut water has phenomenal detoxifying properties that can help flush your body and oxidize cells, resulting in better circulation, healthier organs and clearer skin. Coconut water will help keep your blood cleaner and maintain hormonal balance, which results in clear, radiant skin.
Coconut water is also a very good source of B-complex vitamins such as riboflavin, niacin, thiamin, pyridoxine, and folates. These vitamins are essential in the sense that body requires them from external sources to replenish. In addition, fresh coconut water has small amount of vitamin-C (ascorbic acid); provides about 2.4 mcg or 4% of RDA. Vitamin C is a water-soluble ant-oxidant.
Research studies suggest that cytokinins (e.g., kinetin and trans-zeatin) in coconut water showed significant anti-aging, anti-carcinogenic, and anti-thrombotic effects.
