Benefits Of Coconut Water
Me and my coconut
Benefits of coconut water : Introduction
It’s fun living in a tropical country, especially in a tropical island paradise called Penang. Everything is so casual. It all boils down to the very warm weather and the very casual clothes that we wear. I always wear a very simple t-shirt and shorts. Everyday is like a holiday, and if I happened to be at the beach, it’s like paradise! A typical relaxing scenery will be the swaying coconut trees. Coconut trees; the “tree of life.” So-called because every part of the coconut tree can be used, be it for food and cookies, medicine, household utensils, even for roofing and for bridges. Here I would like to identify one most useful item of the coconut tree. Coconut water. Yes, benefits of coconut water.
Coconut water is said to be the purest liquid second only to water. But it has much more benefits than water. Coconut water is the “fluid of life” from the “tree of life!” You can literally interprete “fluid of life” as coconut water is said to be able to revitalize the reproductive system, and increase the libido and enhance performance. Coconut water helps you maintain your virility and youth, be you a man or a woman. You can say good-bye to Viagra!
I do not know of any fruit in the world that contains 100% liquid inside it. Let's confirm that the coconut is the only fruit in the world that has this unique quality of producing 100% pure liquid juice which we can drink directly from it.
Coconut water : What is it?
For those not very familiar with coconut water, let me explain a little bit. Coconut water is different from coconut milk. Coconut water is from the young coconut. Young coconuts have very little flesh but plenty of coconut water. Coconut water has a refreshing taste, but not sweet. When the coconut is old or ripe, the water is reduced and tastes sourish. Coconut milk comes from the thick flesh or kernel of the old coconut when grated and squeezed. Coconut water is clear like water. Coconut milk looks like milk. Coconut water is for drinking straight. Coconut milk is mainly for cooking. Hope this is now clear.
Coconut trees : Location
Coconut trees are found everywhere in tropical countries. They are usually found in low lying areas especially along the sea coasts. You can find coconut trees in all tropical locations especially in India, Sri Lanka, the Southeast Asian countries, the Caribbean Islands, South America, Florida, and of course, Hawaii.
