Most consumers experience some common health benefits from tender coconut water consumption.Improves Digestive Health
Tender coconut water serves as a tonic. It contains all the nutrients necessary to fulfil a person’s daily intake. When food gets digested, the unwanted portion is passed through the bowels.

Regular consumption of this tender coconut water can help in avoiding any issues related to bowel movements.Rich with Antioxidants
The unstable molecules produced in body cells during metabolism are known as free radicals. They can create stress or injury. Too many free radicals can lead to oxidative stress, which can damage cells and increase the risk of diseases.
According to studies, tender coconut water contains antioxidants that modify free radicals in a manner that can no longer cause any harm. Its nutritional components can also treat inflammation both inside and outside of the body. It can be applied to rashes on the skin to reduce inflammation.
Reduce the Risk of Kidney Stones
It is a known fact that drinking enough fluids can lower the risk of getting kidney stones. Although we can simply drink water to support this matter, coconut water consumption is identified to be a better choice. Kidney stones are formed when calcium, oxalate and other compounds combine to form crystals in urine. Tender coconut water possesses the ability to reduce free radical production in response to high oxalate levels in urine.
There are two types of coconut-based vinegar, namely “Coconut sap vinegar” and “Coconut water vinegar”.
Sap vinegar is made using the sap taken directly from the coconut flower at the top of the coconut tree. Coconut water vinegar is made using coconut water and added sugars.

Vinegar is rich in minerals and vitamins such as beta carotene, calcium, iron, magnesium, and potassium since it is naturally fermented. Still, it has to be noted that there are types of synthetic vinegar available in the market.
Therefore, the better choice is to always go with naturally fermented vinegar made in Sri Lanka to experience the nutritional benefits.
