(NaturalNews) A food lovers' website claims that coconut water is bad for you. On the face of it the argument could stand up but in reality it is fundamentally wrong. What is annoying about their argument is that they are holding up a distortion of the facts and presenting them as the gospel truth.

Coconut water, the thin clear liquid from a ripe or unripe coconut, is known to be rich in potassium, a mineral widely lacking in adequate quantities in many people's diets. It is also relatively high in chloride, which helps the body balance its pH and fluids. This is very important in helping the body maintain homoeostasis (the ideal internal environment for optimum functioning).

Coconut water is so good it has been used to replace human blood plasma in developing countries and during World War II. The health benefits of this healthy nut are numerous and indisputable. They have been proven over time across continents and amongst many indigenous people.

How is it then possible that coconut water can receive such a bad rap? The missing element is context. It is often the habit of mainstream media to broaden their message by diluting their content and without regarding context. This is what is happening here. A casual reader comes away with half baked information and the wrong conclusion.

The article goes on to paint the sugar from coconut water with the same brush as any white sugar, which can cause inflammation. Comparing apples to apples would be more appropriate, i.e. natural sugars to natural sugars. If coconut water is supposed to be bad for you, it does raise the question of how races of people have used it in their diets for hundreds of years without the danger of overdosing on sugar? What the article has not done is put coconut water in the context of the diet in which it is being consumed, i.e. other nutrients in the diet or who is consuming it - someone with a healthy or unhealthy ability to manage the blood sugar mechanism.

One of the contributors says they would not recommend you drink more of it than a popular mainstream sports drink. Coconut water should be recommended, especially if you are a frequent flier. Balancing electrolytes is an important aspect of getting over jet lag quickly and naturally and natural coconut water is proven to help you do just that.
