Abstract

In this study, the researchers used a descriptive, non-experimental research design to describe the perceived health benefits of coconut water in selected municipalities in Cavite. The target respondents of this study were 150 people. The researchers used stratified random sampling in getting the sample size and randomized systematic sampling in selecting the respondents of the study. The researchers used a self-made questionnaire survey forms divided into two (2) parts. The statistical treatments used in the study were: ANOVA, frequency, indpendent t-test, mean, percentage, and standard deviation. Based on the given findings, these are the formulated conclusions: 1) Majority of the respondents among selected municipalities in Cavite were ages 41-60 years old, female, college graduates, with a monthly family income of under Php40,000 and were from lowland area; 2) Overall, the coconut water was highly perceived as a protection for renal impairments amongst its other health benefits; 3) There was no evidence that suggest that the perceived health benefits of coconut water among respondents was influenced by age. However, there was an evidence that suggests that the perceived health benefits of coconut water among respondents were influenced by sex, educational attainment, socio-economic status, and topographical location.
