Ever heard of coconut water? If not, it’s about time you did. Known for the multitude of health benefits it provides – there’s nothing on the market quite like it. For years coconut water has been used to successfully combat dehydrating illnesses such as dysentery, influenza, salmonella, and E. coli. Coconut water provides essential fluids and nutrients to properly rehydrate the body and provides the tools it needs to heal successfully.

One of the most remarkable characteristics of coconut water is its chemical profile and mineral content. The primary minerals or electrolytes are essentially the same as those found in human blood. Studies have shown how coconut water can improve blood circulation, lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke; impressively, coconut water has FDA approval to carry the specific claim that it may reduce the risk of high blood pressure and stroke. But the benefits don’t stop here.

In addition, coconut water is known to be beneficial in many other areas of health. Specifically, it relieves fatigue, constipation and other digestive disturbances, kidney and bladder disorders, glaucoma, and cataracts. It’s also been shown to reverse or slow down the aging process – I’ll toast to that!

Because it’s an ideal drink after rigorous activity, professional and amateur athletes are turning to coconut water to quench their body’s deepest thirst. Many of the sports drinks on the market claim to rehydrate your body when in actuality they’re doing just the opposite. Loaded with high fructose corn syrup, caffeine, artificial colors and flavors, these drinks are actually toxic cocktails. There’s no nutritional value and they can initiate the storage of fat (none for me, thank you). Coconut water, on the other hand, is rich with minerals, vitamins, amino acids, enzymes, and provides a natural boost of energy. It enhances and maintains health and is more effective than commercial sports drinks in rehydrating the body.

You’ll find coconut water in health food stores in bottles, cans, or tetra paks. You can also drink it fresh from the coconut; just make sure to purchase young green coconuts, not the brown hairy ones normally seen in stores. Stock up today and let the healing begin!

I am 49 years old and I've spent the majority of my life extremely obese. I tried every diet under the sun and at times, I did lose weight but in a matter of months, I would gain it all back and more. I weighted in at 400 pounds earlier this year. I was depressed, hopeless and mad as a junk yard dog. A friend of mine told me about Jill Redfern and her organic approach to eating. I met with Jill and she told me the importance of good fats (extra virgin coconut oil) and the importance of protein in the morning. Jill gave me a comprehensive diet plan that was not typical knowledge about the body and a way of eating that has been a joy to implement. I have lost 65 pounds. I have energy and this new lifestyle change is something that I know that I can sustain for the rest of my life. I am forever grateful to Jill for her expertise.
