Coconut water is the clear liquid inside young green coconut. Naturally refreshing, coconut water has a sweet, nutty taste. It contains easily digested carbohydrate in the form of sugar and electrolytes. Not to be confused with high-fat coconut milk or oil, coconut water is a clear liquid in the fruit’s center that is tapped from young, green coconuts.
Coconut water strengthens your immune system.
Simply put, coconut water makes your immune system stronger. It helps clean your body of bacteria that causes urinary tract infections, gum disease, and in some cases has proven effective against gonorrhea. It also helps defeat cold viruses.

Coconut water has been used rarely as an intravenous rehydration fluid when medical saline was unavailable. The story of coconut water being similar to human blood plasma originated during World War II when British and Japanese patients were given coconut water intravenously in an emergency because saline was unavailable. This rehydration technique has been used since only for short-term emergency situations in remote locations where plasma is not available.0
