Did you know that coconut water is the closest liquid to our own human blood?  Back in WWII, coconut water was given as emergency intravenous fluid when blood supplies were low and it’s the only natural non-blood substance that can be safely injected into the human bloodstream.

When you drink coconut water you are actually cleansing your own blood and giving yourself a blood transfusion. AWESOME! 
Coconut water is the highest source of electrolytes on the planet.  Electrolytes are found naturally in our blood, but can get low due to exertion or illness.  So it’s important to replenish the body with electrolytes for optimal health and especially after a work out. 
 

We were brainwashed that sugary sports drinks like Gatorade were a good way to hydrate and replenish these electrolytes.  But they are full of crap and actually will lower our immune system and harm our bodies.
 
Coconut water has 15 X more potassium than the sugary sports drinks and is full of antioxidants, is low in calories, fat free and tastes DELICIOUS!
 
Which coconut water products are the best?  Fresh is always the best, if you travel to tropical places drink as much fresh coconut water as possible.  When I lived in Vancouver, I bought the white husked coconuts at the Asian markets and used my big knife to crack them.  I also choose it in glass or cartons and stay away from cans and metal as much as possible.
In this video I show you another favorite….frozen fresh raw coconut water found in the freezer section of the healthy grocery store….and as you can see I’m doing it….I’m creating a TV Show….Wahoo!!!
