coconut water's benefits
The coconut tree is of the palm family, and is the only species of the genus cocos growing 30 m tall. The coconut is the fruit of this tree. These trees are common in the tropical regions, like in tropical Asia, and Trinidad and Tobago. The fruit as a whole is a very useful one and each and every part of it can be put to some use or the other. For example, the outer layer of the coconut is a coir is used by many industries to make a variety of products, the water in the raw coconut is a good drink, the seed is used in cooking, and oil is also derived from the nut.
An average coconut tree yields about 60 coconuts, whereas some even yield three times this amount. Though it takes up to a year for coconuts to mature, the trees bloom up to thirteen times a year, so the fruit is constantly forming, yielding a continuous harvest all year-round. The name coconut is actually a misnomer for the fruit, as it is not a nut but a drupe, and is the largest seed known to mankind.

What vitamins and nutrients are derived from coconut water and the other parts of the coconut? I do like to eat coconut and occasionally drink the water. I especially like to shred up the white seed or whatever you call it and use it in cooking. Is it a good source of protein or other vitamins or minerals?
