The benefits of coconut juice are amazing. I love having it for a beverage while in the tub, but often it’s even better when I get out of the tub – lovely way to replenish while cooling off and feels healthy going down.
Coconut Juice Facts: coconut juice is a natural isotonic beverage that is high in potassium and other electrolytes, it is an effective rehydration beverage for before, during or after exercise. And it doesn’t have food coloring and added sugars like other “sports” drinks.
During World War II it was discovered that coconut water is the perfect substitute for human blood plasma. It is isotonic to our own blood, has the right electrolytes, and won’t be rejected by the body. If taken straight from the coconut it’s also sterile. War doctors soon began tapping the fluid from coconuts and using it for plasma transfusions.
I know you’re excited about that transfusion bit but don’t try it at home – ok?
You can get a ton more info about coconuts on the Coconut Research Center website and Wikipedia page for coconuts.
