To live a happy, healthy life is something everybody wishes for. Sitting on this wish expecting it to manifest itself, though, is not going to do anything for you. If there is anything you might have learned about this world, it is that good things come to those who work hard, not to those who wait (contrary to what you may have heard before). Whether it means your job involves something you are passionate about and truly love, or spending more time with your loved ones, what matters is that you are doing something about living the life you want to. A big part of this is also about ensuring that you are healthy and that you are a reflection of how you live. To help you on your journey, you might want to consider introducing this little, seemingly insignificant drink to your daily lifestyle: coconut water.

Of course, if someone is telling you to make a change to your lifestyle, the first question that pops into your mind is why. There has to be a good enough reason before you consider it, and yes, you are right. In this case, prepare for a whole host of them! Coconut water consists of a range of beneficial electrolytes and minerals we need for our body such as potassium, magnesium, sodium, phosphorus and copper. It is also rich in antioxidants, which play a major role in reversing the effects of the free radicals that contribute to aging.
Now that you have they ‘why’ sorted out, you are wondering what exactly it is. Well, the thing about making the switch to healthier alternatives is that you need to be extremely careful about where you get your products from. You need to make sure they are every bit as natural as they claim it is. Pure coconut water is extracted from the juice of young coconuts; it is not diluted in anyway or modified with additives or preservatives. It just is. If you plan on holidaying somewhere tropical, indulge in the freshest coconuts every day. You can also party all night, seeing as how this miracle drink also functions as a fantastic hangover remedy.
How It Can Help You
It would be difficult to explain all of its benefits in a few words, but in general, coconut water benefits extend to preventing heart disease, lowering cholesterol, maintaining blood pressure, as well as serving as a natural beauty treatment. Many who have been consuming coconut water over a long period of time tend to have soft, clear and supple skin which cannot be achieved with any cream on the market. Just be careful not to overdo it though, since it does contain some calories. You can reap its full benefits by exercising and maintaining a balanced regime.
