In brief: Very refreshing

Coconut Water comes from the interior of young coconuts.
Due to it’s osmolarity, coconut water is used in some tropical areas to replace fluid losses due to diarrhea. It contains potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, manganese, vitamin C, niacin, thiamin, riboflavin, pyridoxine & folate (folic acid). Research suggests that it’s cytokins may have some level of anti-carcinogenic & anti-aging effect.
