I want to tell you about an incredible food that can help you shed belly fat and help you look and feel younger.
Actually, I shouldn’t call it food – it’s more of a superfood.
Until about 3 years ago, nobody knew there were any benefits of drinking coconut water.
Except maybe the Polynesians, who have been using it for centuries to help them achieve a naturally lean and youthful appearance. Well, it turns out there are many health benefits!
Here are 7 reasons why it’s become an “overnight” sensation for the health-minded and beauty-conscious:
Secret #1: Shed fat.
Coconut water has been proven to suppress the appetite and makes you feel full because of its rich nature (even though it’s extremely low in fat.) That translates to fewer calories.
Secret #2: Who else wants blemish-free, moisturized, toned skin?
For those with acne or other blemishes, topical application of coconut water has the ability to clear up, reduce pore size and tone the skin. It also moisturizes the skin from within when ingested orally. This explains why beauty products contain generous amounts of coconut extract!
Secret #3: Upset tummy?
Irritable bowel? Coconut water has been known to provide quick relief. Because of its high concentration of fiber, it aids in the prevention of indigestion and reduces acid reflux.
Secret #4: Better for you than Gatorade.
The ingredients in coconut water are more effective at hydrating the human body than those of sports and energy drinks. As you are aware, during rigorous exercise, the human body loses mineral-rich fluids. Hydration is a must. And, coconut water is there to serve as an excellent replacement medium with 294 mg of potassium and 5 mg of natural sugar per glass.
Secret #5: Reduces blood pressure.
An unusually unbalanced level of electrolytes can often result in high blood pressure. Because coconut water contains an adequate supply of each, it can be used as a balancing mechanism.
Secret #6: Packed with essential minerals.
Unlike any other beverage on the market, coconut water contains five essential electrolytes that are present in the human body. These include: calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium and sodium.
Secret #7: Can be used in lieu of human blood!
Since it has similar attributes of human plasma, coconut water has been known in extreme emergencies to be used to quickly rehydrate the human body when administered intravenously.
