Tender coconut water is considered to have incredible properties to dissolve kidney stones in a natural way.

It is capable to dissolve the kidney stones by diluting your urine which happens as the coconut water makes the various chemicals in your kidneys such as calcium, phosphate and uric acid, easy to flush out of your system. Thus tender coconut water serves as a natural and safe diuretic and it also increases the flow of urine.  Moreover tender coconut water is loaded with simple sugars, electrolytes and minerals that facilitate in replacing all the lost body fluids during the summer season by keeping your body well hydrated.

One of the main reasons for dehydration is the loss of body fluids and insufficient hydration which leads to the formation of kidney stones. When the body is in a dehydrated state, the total volume of urine produced is very less and the produced urine too will be highly acidic in nature. Kidney stones are formed due to certain minerals that end up as unwanted by-products of metabolism in the urine. These by-products find an acidic environment that is suitable for crystallization and they gradually build up as crystals which will in turn ID-10076720lead to the formation of solid kidney stones.

Coconut water also has a comparatively high potassium content then other fruits and vegetables. Under normal conditions urine has natural substances which inhibit the mineral crystals that are already formed, from sticking to each other, and potassium is one among them.  These substances may not be present in the same quantities in all individuals which cause complications like kidney stones. This may need the help from any external source such as coconut water.

Passing a kidney stone is as painful as labour pain. Kidney stones vary in their shapes and size and as with their texture. They can be either smooth or flat or can be of an irregular shape with zig-zag edges like any other rock.  Even very small sized stones having sharp edges are capable of causing excruciating pain when pushed out. This is because they can scrape against the urinary tract lining causing scars and also produce a bloody tinge to the urine. What could be done to avoid this unbearable pain? The answer is coconut water.

Tender coconut water is a natural diuretic that increases the production and flow of urine. Diluted urine has only a minimal chance for crystal formation as most of the minerals are dissolved in alkaline urine.  Several studies have discovered that when tender coconut was introduced into the urinary system through urethral catheters to the place where the stones were deposited; there was a considerable decrease in the size of the stones and taking it on a daily basis made its decomposition even faster. Oral consumption also found to produce similar results. Therefore urologists recommend drinking tender coconut water to patients suffering from kidney stones which will gradually reduce the stone size and allow easy elimination.
