Coconut Water and Aloe Vera Juice


Coconut Water and Aloe Vera Juice

Hydration is necessary in everyday living, especially if you are active. Here we have two nutrient-packed drinks to help you stay hydrated: Coconut water and Aloe Vera juice..

Coconut water
Coconut water refuels and hydrates the body by maintaining the body’s fluid levels and its potassium content, which in turn helps maintain water pressure within cells and blood. The electrolyte content in coconut water improves nervous system functioning and nerve transmission; this can help prevent cramps and spasms in the muscle. Coconut water is also composed of many naturally occurring bioactive enzymes which help in digestion and metabolism. Lauric acid found in coconut water makes it anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-viral. This boosts the immune system in fighting infection.

Aloe Vera 
When most people think of Aloe Vera, the first thing that comes to mind is the soothing gel that helps with sunburns. Well not anymore. Dating back nearly 5,000 years to early Egyptian times, it was cited as being a powerful herbal medicine. This is down to the huge range of nutrients found in Aloe Vera juice, which replenishes your body naturally. It contains approximately 200 active components including vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, B12, C, E, folic acid and Niacin. Some of the benefits of taking Aloe Vera internally (remember to buy the juice- don’t drink the gel for sunburns) included aiding digestion and promoting both good immunity and skin health. It is very soothing for the internal organs and helps beat the bloat.

Which one should I choose? 
Well, it’s down to you. Try them both to see which one suits your fancy. Even though both of these hydrate your body, make sure to also drink plenty of regular water and do not rely totally on these drinks as they still have some calories and sugar in them.
