Above are pictures of my big boy and his dad having a natural energy drink…COCONUT WATER…Mother Nature’s Sports Drink…a healthy alternative to the energy drinks on the market today. Did you know that fresh coconut water is one of the best natural drinks on the face of the earth?
Coconut water can be used as what some people call a “universal donor”, making it identical to human blood plasma. I just learned today that it was used in the Pacific War to save thousands of lives through Coconut IVs, and emergency plasma transfusions.
A study published in the American Journal of Emergency Medicine suggested that coconut water can be successfully used as a short-term intravenous fluid for resuscitation and hydration of critically ill patients. This is usually done in the remote regions of the world where medical resources are not available.
Coconut water is high in vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. It definitely makes a wonderful energy drink. Coconut water has less sugar and sodium content compared to most sports drinks, while packing more potassium, calcium, and chloride. This makes coconut water a much better choice to replenish and boost the body’s energy levels, especialy after any strenuous activity or workout.
If you are struggling with weight issues, coconut water is a natural electrolyte and isotonic beverage which helps increase the body’s metabolism. Drinking coconut water helps a person to lose weight because it is low in fat and it keeps a person feeling full. Did you know that it also reduces food cravings? Yes it does!
If you are suffering from the flu, drinking coconut water is very beneficial as it has anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties.
