The Coconut Wonder: Find Out What It Can Do To Your Body!

I wasn't a fan of coconut fruit when I was young, I don't know why - it just didn't caught my attention. Just recently though, when I decided to eat healthy and stay fit, I took it into consideration. My sister would always try to buy one whenever she go to the market, so it wasn't really a challenge having it in the table. Plus, living in a tropical country, coconuts have always been a usual sight in the market. In fact, whatever the season is, you'll be sure to find one in the fresh produce section. 

As I mentioned, I didn't have much interest consuming it. Maybe it's because when my mother was still living, we we're more exposed eating avocados, mangoes, and citrus fruits - her favorites. Drinking its juice was something I never thought I'd enjoy so much. But now I think its refreshing and my body feels light whenever I drink it. 

I usually hear people say that it's very healthy and it can cure UTI, thus, it wasn't a surprise when some researchers claim that it's on the list of "super fruits". Just so you know, here are it's health benefits:
