Now that monsoon season is here, it's time to pay attention to our immunity levels that tend to take a dip during this time of the year. In order to keep the immunity system strong and running, it is imperative to load up on a diet that comprises essential vitamins and minerals. A diet devoid of vital nutrients may end up giving rise to various deficiencies in the body. Hence, to take care of that, you can bring to your rescue the super-refreshing and healthy coconut water. The benefits of coconut water are aplenty and many nutritionists and dietitians across the world often recommend adding coconut water to diet to steer clear of harmful toxins. This is primarily because coconut water is replete with antioxidant properties that help in flushing out toxins from the body.

Next, squeeze in some lemon juice and you're good to go.
