Benefits of drinking fresh coconut water when vacationing in Roatan

 vacationing in Roatan

So you’ve finally booked your Roatan vacation!  While you’ll definitely have a lot of fun, did you realize that by using some local, homegrown products you can make yourself healthier as well?  Read more to learn about the benefits of drinking fresh coconut water when vacationing in Roatan.

Coconut Water Is Hydrating

Coconut water has a similar composition to sports drinks, but without all the added sugar.  High levels of magnesium and potassium found in coconut water help to quickly rehydrate the body.  This can be very helpful considering the warm temperatures found on the island. And if you’ve had a few too many tropical drinks, coconut water can play a role in relieving the symptoms of a hangover.

Coconut Water Can Reduce Blood Pressure

Magnesium found in coconut water relaxes blood vessels and prevents them from constricting.  This allows for the easier flow of the blood and reduces the pressure on the vessel walls. The potassium found in coconut water can also act to counterbalance the effects of sodium which has been found to increase blood pressure when found in higher concentrations.

Coconut Water Can Help Prevent Heart Diseases

Coconut water has been found to aid in the reduction of arterial plaques which can lead to strokes or heart attacks.  It can also decrease the levels of bad cholesterol while increasing the levels of good cholesterol. Coconut water directly affects the metabolism of lipids which influence cholesterol levels.

Coconut Water Can Promote Weight Loss

Not only is coconut water low in calories (there are about 65 calories in 12 ounces,) but it contains enzymes which encourage digestion and help metabolize fat.  The aforementioned role that potassium plays in neutralizing sodium will reduce water retention and its associated weight gains.

Coconut Water Can Help Regulate Blood Sugar Levels

Coconut water is rich in a type of amino acids which are thought to allow the body to be more sensitive to insulin.  This increased sensitivity helps regulate the sugar levels in the blood. Coconut water can also reduce symptoms suffered by those with diabetes such as numbness of the feet and plaque build up in the arteries.

Love Shipwrecks? Go Scuba Diving in Roatan!

Roatan is one of the most popular scuba diving spots in the world.  With its location next to the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef system, the second largest barrier reef on earth and some of the lowest priced diving found anywhere on the planet, Roatan has become a haven for scuba divers of all experience levels.  The island’s waters appeal to the interests of divers of all types. Interested in coral reefs? Enjoy swimming with marine animals? Love shipwrecks? Go scuba diving in Roatan!  In this article we go over a couple of the most popular shipwreck dive sites available to scuba divers visiting Roatan.

El Aguila

Popularly known as the Eagle, the el Aguila originally sank in 1989 off the coast of Utila.  It was salvaged a couple of times before being purchased by a team looking to create a shipwreck specifically for divers.  It was towed to its current location in 1997. In 1998 it was broken into three pieces by Hurricane Mitch, but that only increased its value to divers.  The 230 foot hull now has many exposed swim throughs which allow intermediate divers to get a good look inside. Errant parts of the ship that have been strewn across the seabed have created ideal habitats for schools of groupers, snappers, bottom dwellers and eels.

The Odyssey

At 300 feet long, 85 feet tall and 50 feet wide, the Odyssey is the largest intentional shipwreck off the coast of Roatan.  It was sunk in 2002 near the picturesque town of Mud Hole and sits under 110 feet of water on a sandy floor. The Odyssey too was ravaged by storms which caused the central hull to detach and collapse from the stern and bow.  That said, the ship is so big that it can’t be completely explored in a single dive. The center of the hull is as big as a football field. The stern and bow lay at steep angles that become greater every year. Divers often come across schools of tuna, sharks, groupers and barracuda swimming around the structure.
