It;s Safe...!!

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX

Thank you for using HealthcareMagic.

Tender coconut water is absolutely safe and has many health benefits. Being an isotonic solution, it is radially absorbed in the body and facilitates the assimilation of not only nutrients but of drugs as well.

Regular use of tender coconut water helps in lowering high blood pressure, fights heart burn, eases constipation and indigestion. Tender coconut water is also rich in riboflavin, niacin, folate and thiamin, making it the best choice while looking for foods that improves immunity. It has anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties that keeps you safe from external infections.

It is widely used a s diuretic and therefore keeps the urinary tract infections at bay and facilitates the softening of skin and also rejuvenates it.

All you need to know about the coconut and its consumption is that one should always use the fresh tender coconut water. Exposure to air and light causes its oxidation and fermentation, making it practically unusable as far as the nutrition is concerned. Also avoid taking the water obtained from brown coconuts.

One coconut per day is safe and you may continue taking it. However, too much of it, i.e. taking it multiple times in day, may cause hypo-tension and diarrhea in certain cases.

Hope it satisfies your query.
