Brazilian women are some of healthiest in the world.

One of their beauty secrets is the drinking of coconut water from the green coconut.

Besides being one of the most refreshing drinks there are, which is especially suitable for the tropical climate of Brazil, it contains compounds called cytokinins that have been found to have an anti-ageing effect. As if that’s not enough, coconut water — the liquid inside green coconuts — is also packed with essential minerals, such as magnesium, zinc, and iron, plus the complete set of B-group vitamins.
