There is nothing as refreshing as taking natural coconut water or coconut juice when you are in the Philippines 🙂
Aside from being a refreshing, natural drink, it is also a healthy one. It contains simple sugar, electrolytes and minerals (calcium, iron, magnesium and zinc). It is a good source of B-complex vitamins. Research studies also indicate that cytokinins in coconut water showed significant anti-ageing, anti-carcinogenic, and anti-thrombotic effects. Take note that since it has a good amount of electrolyte potassium, it’s also a good drink for those suffering from dehydration (such as those caused by diarrhea).
Think about it, with all its health benefits, this is a good drink really whether it is summer time or not 🙂
