Anti Aging & Health Benefits of Coconut

Anti-Aging and Health Benefits of Coconut Water

In a hot and humid country like Singapore, it is not surprising why a cup of refreshing coconut drink would win the heart of Singaporeans — young and old.

Coconuts grow in tropical climates on trees scientifically known as Cocos nucifera, and are botanically considered a fruit. Coconut water contains 94% water and has very little fat. Not only for its nutritional and health benefits, coconut water is also good for its anti-aging properties.


Coconut Water Contains Antioxidants that Help in Anti Aging

Scientists believe that antioxidants found in coconut may help in anti-aging. Our bodies contain free radicals — they are unstable molecules produced in your cells during metabolism – for example when we exercise or when our bodies digest the food we eat. 

Their production also increases in response to stress, injury and also as we age.  When there are too many free radicals, your body enters a state called oxidative stress. Scientists also believe that this damage your cells and increase disease risk – and aging. Coconut contain antioxidants that help neutralise these harmful free radicals in our bodies.


Coconut Water is a Good Source of Nutrients   

Besides its anti-aging properties, coconut is actually a great source of digestion-friendly and loads of essential minerals. You’ll also get vitamin B, and minerals like iron, magnesium, zinc, copper, manganese, and selenium that are beneficial for health. And about half of the saturated fat in coconut comes from lauric acid, which can help raise levels of heart-protective HDL cholesterol – the good cholesterol. That makes coconut water a healthy choice especially for mid-lifers (defined as people above 40 years old) who are looking for a healthier choice drink. 


Coconut Water Helps Reduce Blood Sugar Level

Aside from its anti-aging properties, research has shown that coconut water can lower blood sugar and improve other health markers in animals with diabetes. In a study from 2015, rats with diabetes that were treated with coconut water maintained better blood sugar levels than the control group. The same study also found that the rats given coconut water had lower levels hemoglobin indicating better long-term blood sugar control.
