Health Benefits Of Young Coconut Water


Coconut (Cocos nucifera) is very beneficial. Indonesia with the longest coastline in the world and covered with coconut trees. Based on data from wikipedia, in 2010, Indonesia is the second largest coconut producer after the Philippines.

Young coconut water is a clear fluid inside the coconut. Please dont be confused with coconut milk, coconut milk is the white and oily liquid that comes from the grated meat of an old coconut. Please read coconut milk on wikipedia.

I usually drink young coconut water, with only small amount of meat, and the maximum is only one fruit per day. I drink it in the afternoon to help me to relax. As it is known that coconut water contains kalium which help to relax the muscles, so it is good to drink it when at rest. The next morning I will wake up with fresh body without muscle stiffness. But I dont drink coconut water at night before sleep, to avoid too much going to bathroom for pee, and it will interrupt my sleeping.
