Coconut water’s natural electrolytes make it a solid match for traditional sports drinks like Gatorade. Made without added sugar, food coloring, or artificial sweeteners, many people reach for coconut water as a more natural performance drink.
Studies have shown that coconut water can perform just as well as a traditional sport’s drink to keep you hydrated and help replenish fluids after a run. However, coconut water has less sodium, the main electrolyte you lose with sweat, than most sport’s drinks. It also has fewer carbohydrates than many drinks meant for endurance performance. This means it might not give you enough energy for a long bout of exercise (greater than 90 minutes), but it will help you rehydrate afterward.
While coconut water doesn’t help you rehydrate any better than water or traditional sports drinks after exercise, a study found that it was easier to drink enough without causing nausea or an upset stomach. The researchers also recommend avoiding coconut water with added sugars because they prevent proper hydration and add unnecessary calories.read more

Drinking coconut water may be helpful to reduce heart disease risk.
In another study, the same researchers fed rats a similar diet supplemented with the same dosage (4 ml per 100 grams of body weight) of coconut water.
After 45 days, the coconut water group had a reduction in cholesterol and triglyceride levels that rivaled the effects of a statin drug used to lower cholesterol (16Trusted Source).
Keep in mind that this was a very high dose. In human terms, it would be equivalent to a 150-pound (68-kg) person consuming 91 ounces (2.7 liters) of coconut water per day.
Nevertheless, the finding that it reduced cholesterol as effectively as a statin drug is very impressive and should be further investigated.read more
Drinking enough fluids is important for kidney stone prevention. Although plain water is a great choice, one study suggests that coconut water may be even better.
Kidney stones form when calcium, oxalate and other compounds combine to form crystals in your urine. These can then form stones. However, some people are more susceptible to developing them than others (13Trusted Source).
Researchers believe that coconut water helped reduce free radical production that occurred in response to high oxalate levels in urine.read more

VIRGIN COCONUT OIL Is now undergoing studies for COVID19 prevention due to its health benefits. But long before that, VCO has been under the microscope for its other benefits, and such benefits include weight loss healthily.
“Coconut oil, especially virgin coconut oil, is rich in medium-chain fatty acids that as part of a healthy, calorie-balanced diet can reduce body fat. It is a healthier fat that can be included in our daily nutrition. Before you start eating it every day, do note that even healthier fats are high in calories. Coconut oil contains 14 grams of fat per one tablespoon serving and 120 calories.”
“According to research, fat intake of 20 to 30 percent of our total daily calories is said to be optimal for health and fitness. This should be taken into consideration prior to reaching for that spoonful of coconut oil.”
