The summer season has arrived in Brazil and with that weather there are several recommendations on hydration of the body. What is gaining space at the moment is undoubtedly coconut water. Nutritionist Fernanda Monteiro will list five reasons to bet on coconut water.

THE FIVE REASONS

HYDRATE

“Coconut water helps replenish fluids and is highly recommended if you are dehydrated, due to illness, such as diarrhea and vomiting, or after exercise,” said Monteiro. The drink still has minerals and amino acids, which provide the body with nutrition and without affecting weight. After all, there are low-calorie.

IMPROVES THE FUNCTIONING OF THE KIDNEYS

The richness of nutrients in coconut water helps eliminate toxins in the body, stimulates the functioning of the kidneys and aids in the production and elimination of urine. “The more urine you produce, the more small crystals you excrete, which can give rise to kidney stones and prevent kidney stones,” Fernanda said.

REDUCE FATIGUE AND STRESS

Dehydration causes slowness in the body, in brain activity, generates tiredness and promotes fatigue. “The potassium and magnesium in the drink help reduce tiredness and stress. Coconut water increases energy and aids in muscle relaxation by rehydrating the body,” she analyzed.

STRENGTHENS THE IMMUNE SYSTEM

Coconut water not only provides hydration to the body, but also becomes an ally of the immune system. “Because it is rich in vitamin C, coconut water strengthens the immune system, making it easier to contract viral diseases,” she said.

HELPS WITH A HANGOVER

“Consuming alcoholic beverages causes us to lose water from the body through urine. This can cause dehydration, resulting in symptoms such as headache, tiredness, malaise, dizziness, nausea and thirst,” explained Fernanda. In addition, the professional admitted that drinking coconut water after heavy alcohol consumption helps replace lost fluids and relieves discomfort.

ATTENTION

There is a need to redouble the attention in relation to hydration of the body, especially when there is a lot of exposure to the sun. “On very hot days, it’s natural for the body to lose more fluids, hence the need to maintain them

always hydrated,” concluded Monteiro.
