Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I often experience dehydration, and I have heard that coconut water can help. Can you explain the specific benefits of coconut water in combating dehydration? How effective is it in rehydration compared to other beverages, and are there any particular factors to consider when using coconut water for rehydration?

Thank you.

Answered by Dr. Sugreev Singh

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Your first query consult is on us!

Coconut water is a natural resource for rehydration; it contains minerals and electrolytes like sodium so you can drink it at least once a day. It has no side effects at all so you can consider it a routine drink. Drinking one glass of coconut water a day is enough to rehydrate your body for one day and along with it, you should drink 0.79 to 1.06 gallons of water a day. By doing so, you can achieve normal rehydration, which is all-natural and healthy.

I hope this information will help you. Please revert in case of further queries.

Thank you.
