Answer:

No clinical study has shown coconut water to prevent or treat kidney stones. Research suggesting a possible benefit is limited to a rat model and a study in people showing that massive intake of coconut water increased urinary levels of citrate, a compound that can help block formation of kidney stones — but there are better ways to increase urinary citrate. For details, see the Coconut Water Review, which includes our tests and comparisons of popular brands of coconut water.
