Why it’s more important than ever to take care of your health

The coronavirus epidemic has spread fear and anxiety surrounding our health on a global scale, causing trending searches on Google on how to boost the immune system, how to stay healthy and the nutrients you need to be getting to fight infection. For many, the fear of getting ill has propelled them into action. For others, being directly affected by the virus has reminded them the importance of good health. As of June 27, there are 509,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus in India, so protecting your health and strengthening your immune system is more important than ever.

What are the benefits of coconut water?

1. Rich in nutrients

As coconuts are plant foods, they are naturally rich in numerous nutrients including fiber, protein, vitamin C, magnesium, manganese, potassium, sodium and calcium. Consuming an array of nutrients has been shown in research to be critical in maintaining good health and maintaining a healthy body weight.

2. Great source of antioxidants

Antioxidants are compounds that fight free radical damage, oxidative stress and inflammation in the body; things that all cause DNA damage, increase your risk of disease and accelerate ageing. A study found that when rats with high levels of oxidative stress were given coconut water, they saw dramatic improvements due to the concentration and quality of antioxidants.

3. Hydration station

Want to know what happens when you’re dehydrated? Your skin ages more quickly, you gain weight, you struggle to lose weight and your cognitive function decreases – your body can’t work properly when it’s dehydrated! Coconut water is extremely hydrating because it contains natural electrolytes, making it a perfect way to replenish post-workout and throughout the day to stay hydrated.

4. Helps you fight against diabetes

Did you know that 73 million adults in India are currently suffering with diabetes? Coconut water is part of the solution. A study published in 2015 by Indian researchers found that drinking coconut water helped to lower blood sugar levels due to the l-arginine in coconut water – a key amino acid in blood level regulation.

5. Improves your skin

As coconut water is extremely hydrating, nutrient and antioxidant rich and contains amino acids – it’s the perfect drink for skin health. Moreover, studies have found that coconut water has anti-inflammatory, antiviral and antibacterial properties for the skin which help to fight acne, improve skin texture and reduce all the visible signs of ageing.
