The August 2009 issue of U.S. News & World Report relayed that the faintly viscose liquid extracted from green (young) coconuts contains far more electrolytes than your average sports drink. (However, most athletes are better off with their Gatorade, which also replaces sodium). So full of electrolytes, in fact, is coconut water, that it contains the same amount as human blood. Talk about a replacement drink!
Coconut water is also a natural source of calcium, potassium and magnesium. And that is what actually brings us to the aphrodisiac part.
Is coconut water an aphrodisiac?
With its powerful punch of minerals and its ability to balance pH levels in the body, this drink can help raise energy naturally, and subtly, but when it counts the most! It also raises metabolism—thus its reputation as a diet aid and whose sex life doesn’t benefit from a metabolic boost?
Best of all, coconut water is proven to boost circulation, and this is where its ancient, aphrodisiac reputation probably comes in. (Let us not forget that it is the blood flow that makes sexual climax possible).
Coconut water has a few additional aphrodisiac benefits. It is a source of fiber, which, as we’ve discussed before, is beneficial for keeping us feel at our most sleek and lean. It also contains a trace of vitamin C, one of those vitamins essential for keeping us looking and feeling young. Lastly, it contains lauric acid, which is associated with keeping our immune systems strong.
