Coconut Water

Coconut water is a highly nutritious, cleansing, and refreshing juice that is lightly sweet and packed with B-complex vitamins and minerals such as calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc, and manganese. Coconut water is one of the highest sources of electrolytes known. It’s a natural isotonic beverage with the same level of electrolytic balance that we have in our blood. In our body, plasma is what makes up 55% of human blood and coconut water is identical to human plasma, which makes it a universal donor. 

Some claim that drinking coconut water gives a person an instant blood transfusion. During the Pacific War of 1941-1945, both sides in the conflict regularly used coconut water-siphoned directly from the nut-to give emergency plasma transfusions to wounded soldiers. Coconut water has also shown significant anti-cancer, anti-thrombotic, and anti-aging benefits due to its high cytokinin content. It’s bioactive enzymes help to significantly support digestion and metabolism. 

Coconut water is low in calories and is an excellent weight loss drink. It also has the ability to hydrate the body on a deep, cellular level making it an essential beverage for athletes and those that live a busy, active life. It also has been shown to help balance pH levels, boost the immune system, and support kidneys in filtering toxins and reducing the risk of kidney stones. 

Coconut water is highly beneficial for cardiovascular health as it can help to reduce blood pressure and increase healthy circulation. It is also a vitally important drink for those who are suffering with a chronic illness such as migraines, sinusitis, COPD, fibromyalgia, asthma, PCOS, cardiomyopathy, chron's disease, epilepsy, hypertension, multiple sclerosis, parkinson’s disease, hypothyroidism, arthritis, lupus, and chronic fatigue syndrome. 

Coconut water is excellent for skin conditions and can be applied topically to heal, soothe, and hydrate skin. Coconut water is a universally appealing drink and is considered safe in pregnancy, infants, and the convalescent. Young green coconuts are readily available year-round in tropical regions such as Hawaii, South Florida, Philippines, Bermuda, Jamaica, Brazil, Thailand, and India and more recently coconut water can be found packaged and bottled and available in supermarkets throughout the United States and around the world.
