Coconuts are one of the wonder foods on earth that amply provides for all human needs and have multiple health benefits.
Referred to as kalpa vriksha (Sanskrit for “the tree that supplies
all that is needed to live”) in ancient India, the coconut palm has been
recognized as a top immune booster, antifungal, antibiotic, antiviral
and antibacterial remedy for thousands of years all over the world.
They have life saving properties and were used extensively in the
Pacific during World War II. Since blood plasma supplies were scarce, it
was very common for medics to siphon pure coconut water from young
coconuts to be used as emergency plasma transfusions for soldiers who
were injured. Since coconut water is nearly identical to human blood, it
was suitable for people of all blood types.
Because of its strong antioxidant properties and health benefits, the coconut water can be used to:
• Lower cholesterol
• Improve digestion
• Ward off wrinkles
• Stabilize glucose levels
• Fight off viruses
• Build cells
