Coconut water is the clear, slightly sweet liquid found in young, unripe coconuts. As the coconut ripens, this liquid is absorbed into its flesh, so the riper the coconut, the less coconut water it contains. For drinking purposes, nuts are harvested at 5 to 7 months of age; since the coconut water in younger nuts is bitter and lacking in nutrients, and older coconuts have started to absorb the water into their flesh.Want to buy some coconut water?

Much more than just a refreshing drink, coconut water contains as much potassium as bananas; as well as providing calcium, magnesium, copper, iron, manganese and zinc. In addition, it contains B vitamins; vitamin C; and phyto-nutrients such as cytokines (which are thought to have anti-aging, anti-cancer, and anti-clotting effects.)
