 Post Subject: Coconut Water is good for Health
Here is some information about Coconut Water:

 Coconut water is the clear liquid inside young coconuts (fruits of the coconut palm). As the fruit matures, the coconut water gradually is replaced by the coconut flesh and air. A very young coconut has very little flesh, and the flesh is very tender, almost a gel. It is naturally fat-free and low in food energy  (16.7calories or 70 kilojoules per 100 grams) and is also marketed as a sports drink because of its high potassium and mineral content. In fact one cup-full of coconut water contains more electrolytes than most sports drinks and more potassium than a banana.
Coconuts from various parts of the world also differ in taste. For example, Indian coconuts tend to be sweet while Brazilian coconuts have a bland taste and Bangladeshi coconuts (due to the soil composition) have extremely sweet water and flesh with a very slight salty aftertaste similar to the Indian. Coconut water is also used as an intravenous fluid in some developing countries where medical saline is unavailable.
 Benefits of Drinking Coconut Water
        Coconut water acts like a medicine for people, who wish to control their blood pressure and obesity. As coconut has less calories than orange juice, it forms an important component of a healthy diet. It contains lorric acid, which is present in mother’s milk. It also boasts of potassium content much higher than many energy drinks. Care should be taken that the water is had fresh, as it tends to lose its nutrients after it combines with the environment.
Coconut water is a natural drink and has many benefits, which may be listed as follows
ü           Drinking coconut water keeps the body cool and also aids in maintaining a normal body temperature.
ü           It facilitates the effective transfer of nutrients and oxygen to the cells.
ü           As coconut water is an isotonic beverage, it orally re-hydrates the body and naturally replenishes the body’s fluids, which are lost while exercising.
ü           It also helps to raise the metabolism rate of the body, thereby promoting weight loss.
ü           This elixir also gives a boost to the immunity system, and strengthens the body’s ability to detoxify and fight diseases.
ü           Coconut water is an effective digestive tract cleanser.
ü           It proves beneficial for diabetic patients to control diabetes.
ü           Aids your body in fighting viruses that cause the flu, herpes, and AIDS.
ü           Helps keep the pH balance in check, thereby reducing the risk of cancer.
ü           It is also beneficial in treating kidney and urethral stones.
 Materials Required
         Coconut water

Analysis For The Presence Of Cations
Test for Mg ion
To small amount of coconut water add ammonium chloride and ammonium hydroxide in excess .Add ammonium carbonate solution and disodium hydrogen phosphate solution.
white crystalline ppt. is observed
Magnesium ion is confirmed.
Test for sodium ion
Add potassium pyronitrate to 5ml of coconut water.
Solution turns milky white
Sodium ion is confirmed
Test for potassium ion
Flame test: Add conc. HCl to the coconut water. Dip a glass rod into it and introduce it in the flame.
Violet colour is imparted to the flame
Potassium ion is confirmed

‘It’s a natural isotonic beverage, with the same level of electrolytic balance as we have in our blood. It’s the fluid of life, so to speak.’

During the Pacific War of 1941-45, both sides in the conflict regularly used coconut water – siphoned directly from the nut – to give emergency plasma transfusions to wounded soldiers..
