Coconut water (sometimes called coconut juice) is the clear liquid found right inside of a fresh coconut.
The best tasting water comes from a young, green coconut.
It’s not only delicious, it's a superfood loaded with nutrition!
For centuries, people in the tropics have been using this naturally sterile water not only as a refreshing drink, but also as a drink to restore and promote good health.
It is different than any other water or fruit juice that we drink.
Because it is "alive". It is the living liquid food that helps nourish and provide energy to a coconut tree so it can grow.
Coconut water is one of the best ways you can get your potassium (one of the most important minerals for good health and for life itself).
It also contains potent antioxidants (cytokinins) that promote health and healing.
Below are only some of its amazing benefits:
You may have had the pleasure of drinking some right out of a fresh coconut on your last vacation.
But, I would have to bet you probably weren’t even thinking about the benefits, unless . . . of course . . . you were drinking it as a cure for a hangover and praying for its natural healing powers to help you recover!
I have personally seen how coconut water has helped my mother eliminate chronic kidney, bladder, and urinary tract infections!
Now that she drinks it every day, she is able to stay off of those strong antibiotics she was having to take about every six months!
And, see below for how much it has helped me!
So, when I found out it was a great way to balance the electrolyte levels in my body, I couldn’t wait to try it!
With all those nutrients mentioned above, I knew there would have to be some health benefits . . . plus it’s basically:
But what I experienced was so much better than I had even imagined!
Every morning when I would wake up, my elbows down to my hands and my knees down to my feet would have an achy, cold, numb feeling.
In addition, anytime I took a deep breath I would get a tingling sensation in my hands.
Well . . . after I started drinking it on a daily basis, those symptoms disappeared!
I couldn’t believe it myself! But that’s not all . . .
My food was no longer getting stuck in my chest and causing pain when I ate.
Plus, I no longer experienced the occasional burning sensation when I swallowed my food.
And, perhaps thanks to the potassium benefits there were no more hemorrhoid flare ups that had been a problem for years!
This was absolute proof for me! Coconut water is my health tonic! And there are many more benefits that medical science is now confirming.
Of course, most of us don’t have fresh young coconuts right outside, but luckily we do have several different brands of packaged coconut water to choose from.
NOTE: Due to the increased demand for coconut water, not all brands are made from the sweet young coconut. Some don’t
even taste good, some actually stink, some are made from concentrate, and some
have a long list of additives.
My friends actually had a bad experience the first time they bought it. They purchased a brand that they said smelled so bad they couldn’t figure out how anyone could drink it.
If that happens to you, you may want to check out these brands:
Now, you can usually find fresh young coconuts at natural food stores and ethnic grocery stores. But, even though their picked fresh, they have to travel a long way and can have a somewhat woody flavor to them.
Fresh young coconuts are also sold online at noelanicoconutwater.com and florida-coconuts.com. But unless you live close . . . the shipping costs can be very expensive.
