August 31, 2016: It is known as a fact that nature provides plenty of natural resources for life to sustain and flourish. Some Herbs, shrubs and trees are natural reservoirs of minerals and medicines; the noteworthy and most common of them are Tulsi and Neem.

The Coconut, a pretty high hanging nut-like fruit that has been used as a vital hydrating agent since ages hasn’t got the spotlight it deserves. Often used in Indian movies, where the water inside a coconut is slurped by the two actors simultaneously, to display the mutual affection of the actors towards each other, the Coconut water, apparently, has more than what meets the eye!

So here’s a list of all the good stuff coconut water blesses you with-

  • Known for its high mineral content, Coconut water moisturises the skin and helps in improving the skin tone. It helps a great deal in eliminating oil from the system. That is the reason shampoos, conditioners and moisturisers have traces of coconut extracts in them.
  • The high concentration of fibre assists in the digestions process helps reduces the occurrence of acid reflux and helps reduce acidity . A healthy digestive system results in a healthy body and mind.

  • Coconut water is a blessing for the urinary system in humans as it contains diuretic properties, and is said to prevent kidney stones.

It contains five crucial electrolytes which are- calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorous and sodium, which not only help in improving the stamina but provide the necessary energy to the body.

Nature Gives You A Major Boost In Improving Your Mental Health

From previous experimental studies we knew that physical activity in natural environments can reduce stress, improve mood and mental restoration.

People who commute — walking or cycling — through natural environments are more likely to develop better mental health than those who commute less, according to a new study.

Natural environments included all public and private outdoor spaces that contain ‘green’ and/or ‘blue’ natural elements such as street trees, forests, city parks and natural parks/reserves and all types of water bodies.

“Mental health and physical inactivity are two of the main public health problems associated with the life in urban environments. Urban design could be a powerful tool to confront these challenges and create healthier cities. One way of doing so would be investing in natural commuting routes for cycling and walking,” said Mark Nieuwenhuijsen from the University of Barcelona.

For the study, published in the journal, Environment International, the research team examined nearly 3,600 participants who answered a questionnaire about their commuting habits and their mental health.

The findings showed that respondents commuting through natural environments on a daily basis had on average a 2.74 point higher mental health score compared to those who commuted through natural environments less frequently.

This association was even stronger among people who reported active commuting, the team said.

“From previous experimental studies we knew that physical activity in natural environments can reduce stress, improve mood and mental restoration when compared to the equivalent activity in urban environments,” said first author Wilma Zijlema from the varsity.

“Although this study is the first of its kind to our knowledge and, therefore, more research will be needed, our data show that commuting through these natural spaces alone may also have a positive effect on mental health.” (IANS)
