The healing power of coconut water

  1. Coconut water is the water you can drink when you open a coconut. It is not coconut milk that is made from the pulp. You can drink coconut water a lot in the tropics on coastal areas. At the top there are three soft spots in the coconut where you can make a small hole in which to put a straw. You can also use a sharp machete, jungle knife, or machete to cut the top off and use the coconut as a cup. It is a very refreshing drink on a tropical hot day. Nowadays coconut water is packed in a cardboard carton so that it can also be enjoyed outside the tropics.

Use coconut water

  1. The coconut palm can grow in any tropical area but mainly gets coconuts on the coast. Inland, the generation of fruits does not want to be successful. Therefore, coconut water is only a popular drink in coastal regions of the tropics such as the Pacific or Pacific Islands, Brazil, India, Africa, the Caribbean, Southeast Asia, Indonesia and New Guinea. One coconut contains 200ml to a liter of coconut water. A single coconut tree can contain up to 100 fruits per season.

Coconut water, good or unnecessary?

  1. There is some confusion about coconut water. Some call it superfood and others say it is unnecessary to drink coconut water. Both views contain truth. Coconut water is very healthy, but if you already eat half a kilo of vegetables and five fruits a day, you do not really need the addition of healthy substances. Perhaps the best way to consider coconut water is as an ideal drink on a tropical island vacation, and to complement a menu that is low in nutrients. People who engage in vigorous physical exertion such as top athletes and home care cleaners can certainly use extra nutrients. They benefit greatly from the great health benefits of coconut water.

Coconut water, flapper milk and coconut milk

  1. Coconut water is also called flapper milk. This is confusing because coconut milk is not the same as flapper milk; that is made from the heated pulp. In Indonesia, coconut water or flapper milk is called kelapa muda. Klapper comes from the word kelapa. Muda means 'young'. This refers to the fact that the coconut only has a lot of water just after the ripening process, when the fruit has just been picked. An older coconut is only used to dry the pulp.

Fresh coconut meat

  1. In countries where coconut water is drunk, the coconut fruit is not thrown away afterwards, as it contains a lot of fresh pulp. In our regions this fresh pulp is hardly for sale; we only know hard pulp that is grated for use in the kitchen. The fresh pulp is used to make sauces for hot meals. It can also be used in smoothies. In the tropics, delicious fruit juices, smoothies and soups are made from it.

Nutritional value

  1. Coconut water contains more minerals than the same weight of oranges. Coconut water is especially high in magnesium. 100 grams of this drink contains 7% of the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) for magnesium. It also contains 5% of the RDI of potassium. It also contains 5% of the RDA for vitamin B2. There are many more vitamins and minerals in it, but all with percentages below 3%. It also contains cytokinins such as kinetin and trans zeatin. These substances have proven to be anti-cancer. They also help prevent premature physical age symptoms. Cytokines also help to counteract thrombosis. L-arginine is also a substance found in coconuts. Coconut water, along with vitamins such as vitamin C, is a strong source of antioxidants. The juice contains 100 grams of 1.1 grams of fiber. These ensure that you only feel full when drinking the water itself. 100 grams of coconut water contains 2.6 grams of natural sugars; that is not very much, but it does ensure that you get energy in a natural way. It is much healthier to drink coconut water for dehydration than soda. There are also many enzymes in coconut water. These mainly help the metabolism. The conversion of nutrients into substances necessary for the body is only possible if there are sufficient enzymes in the body.

Injecting coconut into the veins

  1. Eiseman studied the injection of coconut water in 157 patients. No one was diagnosed with a toxic or allergic reaction. Administering coconut water intravenously (through the veins) was considered advisable in case of dehydration and mineral deficiency. Yet this therapy has not become a general good because there are other ways to remedy people from dehydration and mineral deficiencies; it is only used in emergencies in remote tropical places. In World War II, coconut water was injected directly into the veins of British and Japanese soldiers who had been injured. Coconut water was believed to have the same composition as blood plasma. This course of action is over; the drink is only drunk. Sometimes there is little medical supplies available in remote areas. Then it is good and responsible to turn to alternative means. In 2000, another patient from the Solomon Islands who was suffering from severe dehydration, coconut water was successfully injected into the veins. Incidentally, the injection of substances from nature is not something unusual; For years people have been healed by injecting seawater into their veins to get stronger. The mineral composition of seawater and human blood are exactly the same.

Coconut water, electrolytes and sports drink

  1. Electrolytes are in our blood. Calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, chloride, bicarbonate and phosphate are important electrolytes in the human blood. They ensure a good osmotic value and ensure that the correct acidity is maintained. A lack of electrolytes can lead to continuous muscle tightening. This can cause muscle cramps. Electrolyte imbalance can lead to cardiac and neurological symptoms. You sometimes read that an athlete suddenly falls dead; this may very well be related to an electrolyte imbalance. Coconut water ensures that the electrolyte balance remains optimal, even when a lot of physical stress is demanded from the body. That's why coconut water is increasingly being used as a sports drink.

Coconut water as a sports drink

  1. You have to drink a lot during exercise, otherwise you can get dehydrated. Drinking only water can lead to mineral deficiencies. Coconut water has been compared with sports drinks in various studies. Coconut water can be thought of as a natural sports drink that replenishes the loss of vitamins and minerals from extreme physical exhaustion. Sports drinks do that too, but a sports drink is filled with synthetic vitamins and minerals. Coconut water is less likely to cause nausea, makes you feel fuller and does not upset your stomach compared to sports drinks.

Coconut water increases fat metabolism

  1. In a 2006 scientific study, rats that were supplied with coconut water showed much less unwanted fat deposits than rats that were not given coconut water to drink. Fat metabolism was improved and bile secretion increased. Bile is a substance that mainly aids in the digestion of food. Food and therefore fats are digested better if you take coconut water. The aorta and liver, in particular, were kept free from fat accumulation.
