7 Health Benefits Of Coconut Water

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of coconut water. I’ve talked here about all the great benefits before, and when Evita Ramparte kindly and generously offered to give us her take on the wonder drink, I jumped at the chance! You can read about Evita’s miraculous journey here. So, without further ado, here is Evita in her own words:

Coconut is the king of all super foods. Because it has high counts of vitamins and minerals, among many other things, that are bio available, our bodies absorb and consume them almost immediately. Here are the most amazing health benefits of coconut water.

7 Health Benefits Of Coconut Water

Coconut water is probably the healthiest liquid that you can ever drink. It can give you significantly more health benefits than a commercially-produced thirst quencher. Here are some of the health benefits of coconut water:

1. Coconut water is alkaline
Its bio-chemical composition is the closest to human blood. In fact, it is the only natural liquid you can inject into veins. Therefore, cleansing on coconut water is like a having a ‘liquid blood transfusion’. It takes only three days for your blood to switch from acid to alkaline.

2. Coconut water is nutritious
It is very low in fat. It is also very low in sugar, so by drinking it, you’re actually preventing the onset of diabetes. It’s full of nutrients and minerals that help you feel full, decreasing your cravings for excessive foods. You are being nourished on cellular level, so you don’t feel unnecessarily hungry.

3. Coconut water is super-hydrating
It has more hydrating properties than average tap water, so drinking it can certainly help your digestion. Thus, you’ll be able to absorb food nutrients better and have easier bowel movements when you drink it.

4. Coconut water boots the immune system
Coconut water has anti-viral and anti-fungal properties that can help you steer clear from diseases. It creates an alkaline environment in the body, which becomes unbearable to the microbes that proliferate when the body liquids are acidic.

5. Coconut water can help revitalize your cells and boost your metabolism
It contains less sodium and more potassium than the average energy or sports drink, making it  a highly recommendable substitute for these expensive and artificial products. You’ll instantly feel rejuvenated and refreshed after you’ve had a fill of this “miracle water.”

6. Coconut water is full of electrolytes
Electrolytes are bio-chemicals that help your body absorb minerals. Coconut has so much of these ions that is often recommended for hang-over relief or as a sports drink.

7. Coconut water is magical
This is our subjective experience… We noticed during our cleansing retreats that there is something magical about the coconut. It opens psychic abilities and facilitates synchronicities faster than any other liquid. Perhaps it is the reason why all the native people, wherever coconut grows, consider it sacred.
Do you now see why I choose to do coconut cleanses? How much fun are you going to have drinking fresh, organic coconut water for seven days? How much is your body going to enjoy it?

A big THANK YOU to Evita for sharing her thoughts. Do you drink coconut water? Have you noticed any changes in your health and well-being? Tell me your experiences in the comments.



  1. Benefits sound amazing and Ive seen a few brands of coconut water on the market. can you recommend any one brand?

    1. Great question, Anonymous! Of course, fresh coconut water right from the coconut is best, but other than that, it just comes down to personal preference. Try brands with no additives and stick with the one that tastes the best to you. Also, in my experience, chilled coconut water tastes much better than room temperature. Let me know which one you like the best!
