Benefits Of Coconut Water And Virgin Coconut Oil

Coconut tree gives us its everything.  When we were little and in school, we were taught how useful coconut trees can be to our daily lives.  The leaves can be ataps roof, the branches can be brooms, the trunk can be a bridge.  The coconut fruit itself, just like its mother tree, offers aplenty, refreshing drink, pure white tasty santan milk, husk and shell that fuel cookings and they make nice decors and utensils too.

Coconuts don't just offer us its everything.  Each of its everything offers us countless benefits.

The following is excerpts from the website Virgin Coconut Oil.

The juice of the coconut fruit is not just a tasty refreshing drink, it is also a healthy beverage with lots of good benefits for the body because it is 100% fat free and low in sugar and carbohydrates content.
The water inside the coconut is also filled with organic compounds that helps one maintain a healthy and strong body.  Here are some of the benefits one can get from coconut water:

Coconut Water Prevents Dehydration. People who are active such as athletes or simply those who are fitness enthusiasts are always at risk to be dehydrated because the body loses fluids when doing strenuous activities. For this reason active people are advised to regularly drink coconut water because it replaces the fluids and essential minerals that are lost during a physical activity.

Coconut Water Is A Natural Cure For Kidney Stones and UTI. If you are having difficulty peeing because you are suffering from urinary tract infection (UTI) or other urinary problems, then regular consumption of coconut water can relieve you of this illness.
People with kidney stones are also advised to drink coconut water to naturally and effectively get rid of the stones.  Plus coconut water is also a detoxifier that reduces toxin in the body.

Coconut Water Keeps Digestive System Healthy.  This is because coconut water kills intestinal worms.

One of the essential gifts of coconut is its oil.  Virgin coconut oil is the oil in its most natural unrefined form.  Virgin Coconut Oil is high in lauric acid (also present in human breast milk) which is very beneficial in attacking viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens. Its antimicrobial properties can be used to fight various diseases.

Virgin coconut oil is one of the few herbal supplements that you can enjoy both ways; internally and externally. Taking the recommended dosage of three tablespoons a day of virgin coconut oil is beneficial but simply applying it on skin can also help you in a variety ways.
