As a Sports Therapist, I thought I was invincible. Never getting injured. But I realise I do, I’m mainly getting injured from just being clumsy.
A month ago, a person in Fitlane came up to me and said “you look like you are in pain” It was a saturday morning, so I couldn’t phone my doctor. “I just nodded and said yes”
He then told me about these patches that he has and would I like to try one. I just said “right now, I would try anything to get rid of the pain I’m in”. So he explained how to use them and I took 2.
He sms me on Saturday late afternoon to ask how I was feeling. But to be honest, even though I took them, I am still very cautious. But anyway, I decided to put one on. All I can say is WOW, I got instant relief. For the first time I could walk properly. I can honestly say they are the best.
I phoned him back the next day and said bring me a box. I instantly thought of my clients who need to fly or have to cope with a long day.
I have heard and read so much about the benefits of coconut water. But like always I study every detail of the ingredients.
So now, I’ve finally found some pure coconut water with no added sugar. It’s so good that I’m selling it at the clinic.
So why do I like it so much?
1. Rehydrates the Body
It helps lift your energy level. Coconut water replenishes the electrolytes in the body and boosts hydration, thus making you feel better.
2. Lowers Blood Pressure
Coconut water is considered good for controlling high blood pressure, thanks to its vitamin C, potassium and magnesium content. Potassium, in particular, helps lower blood pressure by balancing out the negative effects of sodium.
3. Heart Tonic
Cholesterol- and fat-free tender coconut water offers cardioprotective benefits. It helps lower low-density lipoprotein (LDL or the ‘bad’ cholesterol) and increase high-density lipoprotein (HDL or the ‘good’ cholesterol) levels, thus reducing the risk of heart disease.
4. Natural Diuretic
Coconut water acts as a natural diuretic. Thus, it promotes urine production and flow, cleansing your body of toxins. It also helps prevent problems like urinary tract infections.
5. Promotes Weight Loss
Coconut water is an ideal drink for weight loss. It is low in calories and easy on the stomach. In fact, this light and refreshing drink contains various bioactive enzymes that aid digestion and boost fat metabolism.
6. Treats Headaches
Most headaches, even migraines, are triggered by dehydration. In such cases, coconut water can be of great help in supplying electrolytes to the body and boosting hydration.
Coconut water is also rich in magnesium.
7. Balances pH Levels
Coconut water has an alkalizing effect that helps restore a healthy pH in the body. It also helps alkalize the acidic pH levels caused by acidity and heartburn.
8. Slows Down Aging
The micronutrients in coconut water help boost the immune system. Plus, the plant hormones called cytokinins in this health drink exhibit anti-aging, antithrombotic and anticancer effects.
