Some people consider it beneficial to drink it on an empty stomach and some in the afternoon. Jaipur's dietitian Surbhi Pareek says that the best time to drink it is in the morning. It should not be drunk with or after a heavy meal. Expert Surbhi Pareek says that people who have a problem with acid reflux or heartburn should drink coconut water on an empty stomach. However, there are many other benefits of drinking this healthy drink on an empty stomach.

Drinking it early in the morning boosts metabolism, the benefit of which is weight loss. If the stomach is healthy then the body is protected from many diseases or health problems. If you want, you can drink it in the afternoon also on the advice of experts. However, there is constant confusion on whether it should be drunk in the evening or not.

IMD has also said that the threat of heatwaves will trouble people a lot in the coming times. In such a situation, it is very important to consume things like coconut water.
