My new obsession is fresh coconut juice! the health benefits are amazing, iv started having it everyday with out a miss. Although i love the juice im not much of a fan of the meat which contains 200 calories for every TWO INCH A PIECES!! Besides that, its my new love and to top it off there only $1.50 at woolies "WINNING" but if you cant fit coconuts into your man bag then head to a boost juice bar- and choose from the 3 flavours,which i stick to the all-natural juice.
Coconuts can add flavour, variety and--best of all--healthy nutrients to your diet. Coconuts are rich in lauric acid, which is known for being antiviral, antibacterial and anti-fungal, and boosts the immune system.
Fresh coconut juice is one of the highest sources of electrolytes known to man, and can be used to prevent dehydration, for instance in cases of diarrhoea or strenuous exercise, instead of a sports drink. Some remote areas of the world even use coconut juice intravenously, short-term, to help hydrate critically ill patients and in emergency situations.
Health benefits of coconuts and coconut oil include:
* Help you lose weight, or maintain your already good weight
*Reduce the risk of heart disease
*Lower your cholesterol
*Improve conditions in those with diabetes and chronic fatigue
*Improve Crohn’s, IBS, and other digestive disorders
