HEALTHY EATING - Coconut water

Coconut water

Coconut water is the hot new health drink 
but opinion is divided as to whether it’s the 
wonder beverage many claim it to be.
Some health experts believe coconut water - the clear liquid inside a young coconut - to be a nutritional goldmine. Not to be confused with coconut milk, the fattier, pulped coconut meat, pure coconut water is widely available fresh from health food outlets. The Jamaicans use it as a heart tonic and the United Nations' Food and Agriculture Organisation says it's full of natural electrolytes.
Deemed a healthy alternative to sugar- and kilojoule-packed soft drinks and juices, pure coconut water is a natural beverage with no artificial additives or sweeteners. It also boasts zinc, selenium, iodine, sulfur, manganese, boron, molybdenum, ascorbic acid and B-group vitamins.

Nutritionist Lisa Guy says:

“Coconut water is 'natures sports drink' as it is a fantastic source of electrolytes, great after a workout, as a hangover cure, or if you've had diarrhoea or vomiting.”
