Coconut water is the real game-changer in the fitness industry. Within a few years, this miracle drink has gained a huge fan following and become a trendy drink.
And why wouldn’t it be? It’s refreshing, tasty, and healthy.
But, what is coconut water?
Coconut water is the clear, transparent liquid found in green-colored, immature coconuts. If you need the freshest and purest coconut water, get it from young coconuts. They have more water than the mature ones.
Why is it so?
Mature coconuts develop a harder husk, while the water inside solidifies to form the gooey white flesh. That’s why mature coconuts aren’t the best to get coconut water.
To extract the water, you need to chop the top off the soft shell of the young coconut.
The taste of coconut water may vary with different varieties of coconut. It also depends upon the region where they are grown.
No matter where it is grown, its nutritional qualities remain the same.
Coconut water contains many essential nutrients including minerals. So, it is a healthy drink that’s completely natural too.
Let’s check out the top ten health benefits of coconut water.

First, let’s start by answering the question « Who is a Vegetarian? ».
The Vegetarian Society has made it easy and simple to understand who a vegetarian actually is:
A vegetarian is someone who consumes pulses, grains, nuts, seeds, legumes, fruits, vegetables, fungi, yeast, algae, and some other non-animal-based foods (e.g., salt) with, or without, dairy products, honey or eggs.
A vegetarian doesn’t eat foods that consist of living or dead animals or that have been produced with the aid of animals. This includes meat, fish, shellfish, poultry, insects, by-products of slaughter** or any food made with processing aids created from these.
So, a vegetarian is one who avoids eating meat. It’s usually a self-motivated lifestyle change and can be caused by a variety of reasons such as religious beliefs, health risks, ethical liabilities or moral considerations.
More recently, we have seen many athletes and bodybuilders turning to vegetarianism or veganism. A few years back, it seemed like an unlikely idea to switch to an entirely plant-based diet with no meat or dairy products involves and retain an ultra-cool, well-built body.
How would you get the necessary proteins, was the first question that aspiring vegans had to consider.
But contrary to popular belief, veganism is not at all an obstacle in your path to building muscle mass through resistance training.
