Anyways, moving on... I thought today I would share with you guys the reason why I have been all about coconut water recently, I'm genuinely obsessed with the stuff, not only does it taste delicious and refreshing, the list of health benefits goes on and on.
To begin with, for all of you sporty people, coconut water is packed full of potassium which not only reduces your blood pressure and prevents you from having a stoke but also prevents you from getting a stitch during exercise.
It is also full of electrolytes, which helps to balance out the fluid levels in your body, something that is very important especially after exercising as it replenishes the important electrolytes in our body.
Unlike coconut milk, coconut water is naturally fat free, so if your looking to maintain or cut down on your calories coconut water is the way to go. One 240 ml cup equates to only 46 calories and includes fiber, protein, vitamin C, potassium, maganese, magnesuim, calcium and sodium. So basically lots of essential good stuff!
Another thing that I wanted to add is that drinking coconut water doesn't have to cost you an arm and a leg! I buy mine from Asda and I always go to one of their big supermarkets because I know that they will have it there in their 'free from' section. It only costs me £1.65 for a one litre carton of 100 percent pure coconut water. Which is much cheaper than the 1 litre Vita Coco option that they have in the fridge area that costs £3.50. So if you do go to buy some make sure your not unnecessarily spending extra money!
