    Why do we get mouth ulcers after drinking coconut water. As my relative always complaint

    1. Neha Kava Post author

      Mouth ulcers with coconut water cannot be the reason. It might be possible that coconut water is consumed after a long meal gap or empty stomach which may cause gastric discomfort and due to that there would be mouth ulcers. What i would suggest is to have coconut water in first half of the day may be 1 hr after any meal.
      Any other queries, revert back
