Coconut water, or buko juice as Filipinos love to call it, is a natural thirst-quencher. The juice stored in the young belly of a coconut, provides an impressive amount of nutrition and benefits to our health that includes…
Buko juice helps you lose weight
The fat content in buko is very low. The juice also suppresses your appetite and makes you feel full because of its rich nature.
It has anti-aging effects
Buko juice contains cytokinins, which are responsible for the coconut’s slow growth (Coconut fruit can grow up to years!) Because of that, the cytokinins in the juice also has anti-aging effects to anyone who drinks it.
Buko juice is a natural sports drink
Coconut juice has high electrolyte, magnesium and calcium content. It also has a small amount of sugar which is necessary to help your muscles recover after a strenuous workout.
It’s a cure for hangovers
The electrolytes in the coconut juice also help settle your stomach if you’re having a hangover from over drinking. It will also replace those other electrolytes that exit the body if you experience frequent urination and vomiting.
Buko juice gives you picture-perfect skin
There’s a reason why beauty products say they contain coconut oil. The juice of this tropical nut helps clear up the skin and moisturize it. It also helps get rid of acne and other blemishes.
Reduces blood pressure
A scientific study confirmed that coconut water does have a definite effect on blood pressure, which was reduced significantly after subjects drank buko. The juice also helps out balance the electrolytes which if disproportionate, can cause high blood pressure.
