Coconut Water

I just had to include pics of my girls!

But read below for info on Coconut Water. :)

This stuff is my new obsession. It is SO good for you. I found out about while pregnant as it is exceptionally good for pregnant and nursing women. It is also a healer of stomach ailments and with the stomach flu going around - go out and get some now!
I buy the ZICO brand, mango flavor (yum) at Trader Joe's. It is the cheapest there by far.

See what this wonderful stuff can do for you. I have one every day. If you are drinking Gatorade or Vitamin Waters, or soda for that matter, do yourself a favor and switch to coconut water.

Coconut water has been used for re-hydration and as a health and beauty aide in tropical regions around the world for centuries.

Coconut water is low in fat and calories, has no cholesterol, and has a natural balance of sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium- making it a healthy electrolyte drink. It has even been used intravenously to stabilize electrolytes.

Many people know of the healing benefits of coconut oil. Coconut water now joins the pantry’s medicine cabinet. Coconuts are anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-microbial. The lauric acid in coconuts is also used to heal digestive tract disorders such as Leaky Gut Syndrome.

According to ayurvedic belief, coconut is carminative: meaning that it helps to prevent intestinal gas, aids in removing toxins and increases the digestive tract’s ability to absorb nutrients. Coconut balances acid levels and flushes toxins out. Ayurveda considers coconut a natural stress-buster.

The calming, cooling benefits of coconut water relieves burning sensations and hot flashes and “restores emotional stability in menopausal women”. This property of coconut water also makes it an excellent choice for liver problems, hepatitis or inflammation.

Since it regulates the functioning of the intestine, the coconut water propitiates to the user a smoother and pretty skin.

Beyond ingested, the coconut water can also be used directly on the face, for skin hydration.

Around the world women have used coconut products on their hair and skin as well as consuming it. It is a common ingredient in beauty products.
