    Default Coconut Water: Far More Than Just a Refreshing Beverage

    Not just one of Nature's most refreshing beverages, coconut water is a powerhouse of deep, evidence-based health benefits.

    Few beverages on this planet are as biocompatible to the human body and its hydration needs as coconut water. Indeed, coconut water has been reported to have been used for intravenous hydration and resuscitation of critically ill patients in remote regions of the world for over half a century.[1] It is also an excellent preserving medium for avulsed teeth (and semen!), besting even Hank's balanced salt solution, a commonly used medical solution.[2]
    While some are concerned about the sugar content of this slightly sweet beverage, recent research shows it actually exhibits blood sugar lowering properties in an experimental model of diabetes.[3]

    I made water kefir with coconut water a while ago. It was horrible - I suspect there wasn't enough natural sugar for the kefir to do its thing. I so rarely buy any form of bottled drinks that coconut water seems expensive, but that may be just my opinion.

    I aree, it is expensive. Since I'm not convinced that its health benefits are worth the price, I keep my coconut water dollars in my pocket.

    It does seem to be quite expensive to me, as well. So when one of my neighbor's coconuts happens to roll down into my yard, it's mine!

    Very wise, Maurya. Any way for you to "encourage" them?

    Ha ha! Don't give me any ideas! The man with the truck full of coconuts still is selling them from the side of the road.
