We love offering our guests healthy food and drink options while they’re visiting us at Secrets Resorts & Spas. And as we’re sure most of you have heard, coconut water has become a new liking among many and not surprisingly, this yummy drink has numerous health benefits.
Here’s five reasons why you should drink this delicious drink:
1. It keeps you hydrated. Next to water, coconut water is the purest liquid and it does a great job of keeping the body hydrated and nourished–especially when sitting in the warm sun at our resorts!
2. It promotes weight loss. Coconut water is a natural diuretic and a good source of dietary fiber, which helps aid in weight loss.
3. It’s good for your skin and hair. Coconut water helps the strength, elasticity and smoothness of the skin, and also promotes and strengthens hair and nails.
4. It promotes kidney health. The magnesium and potassium in coconut water help prevent and dissolve kidney stones.
5. It boosts your immune system and improves overall health. The alkalinity present in coconut water can help to balance your body’s pH levels and restore it to a healthy state.
Low in calories, naturally fat- and cholesterol free, more potassium than four bananas, and super hydrating – these are just a few of the many benefits ascribed to America’s latest health craze: coconut water.Dubbed “Mother Nature’s sports drink” by marketers, the demand is skyrocketing, propelled by celebrity and athlete endorsements and promises to hydrate the body and help with a whole host of conditions, from hangovers to cancer and kidney stones.*
