椰子水是最棒的电解质来源之一。这是一种天然的等渗饮料，即其电解质平衡与人体血液中的电解质平衡是一致。人体血液组成中55%是血浆，而椰子水等同于血浆，这就是为什么实际上椰子水是万能供血者。1941 - 1945年的太平洋战争期间，冲突双方经常使用椰子水给伤兵紧急输血。

Coconut, especially in the form of coconut water and coconut oil, has enjoyed some time in the sun in recent years. We hear stories about how coconut water was used as IV fluid for wounded soldiers in World War II, and about health miracles people have experienced by incorporating coconut oil into their diets. Everywhere you turn, it seems, there’s a positive claim about coconut—and rightfully so.
Now let’s get down to what hasn’t yet been discovered: that coconut enhances the power of anything it touches. It has an incredible reach. When combined with any healing food, coconut gets in touch with those benefits and super- charges them. For example, if you add coconut water to a smoothie with parsley, that coconut water increases the parsley’s ability to remove unproductive acids from your body by 50 percent and dramatically improves the effects of parsley’s already beneficial trace minerals. Or if you add coconut meat to a salad, everything else in the salad—cucumbers, lettuce, tomato, spinach, anything that has healing properties— becomes more nutritious and life-changing. Coconut drives a food to fulfill its highest purpose by igniting amino acids, vitamins, and other nutrients, and in doing so, nourishes you so you can perform your life’s purpose and then some—your purpose-plus.
Though you wouldn’t look at a coconut palm tree and think it has much in common with a human, we’re more connected to these plants than you may realize. For one, as that IV story teaches us, coconut water is remarkably similar to human blood. Secondly, coconut palms are tropical—they need warmth. Though humans are scattered all over the globe, we really are tropical beings at our origins. You won’t find someone surviving in a snowy climate without protective body gear and some source of heat. Coconut puts us in touch with that foundational essence of who we are.
Coconut water is a highly nutritious, cleansing, and refreshing juice that is lightly sweet and packed with B-complex vitamins and minerals such as calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc, and manganese. Coconut water is one of the highest sources of electrolytes known. It’s a natural isotonic beverage with the same level of electrolytic balance that we have in our blood. In our body, plasma is what makes up 55% of human blood and coconut water is identical to human plasma, which makes it a universal donor.
Some claim that drinking coconut water gives a person an instant blood transfusion. During the Pacific War of 1941-1945, both sides in the conflict regularly used coconut water-siphoned directly from the nut-to give emergency plasma transfusions to wounded soldiers. Coconut water has also shown significant anti-cancer, anti-thrombotic, and anti-aging benefits due to its high cytokinin content. It’s bioactive enzymes help to significantly support digestion and metabolism.
Coconut water is low in calories and is an excellent weight loss drink. It also has the ability to hydrate the body on a deep, cellular level making it an essential beverage for athletes and those that live a busy, active life. It also has been shown to help balance pH levels, boost the immune system, and support kidneys in filtering toxins and reducing the risk of kidney stones.
Coconut water is highly beneficial for cardiovascular health as it can help to reduce blood pressure and increase healthy circulation. It is also a vitally important drink for those who are suffering with a chronic illness such as migraines, sinusitis, COPD, fibromyalgia, asthma, PCOS, cardiomyopathy, chron's disease, epilepsy, hypertension, multiple sclerosis, parkinson’s disease, hypothyroidism, arthritis, lupus, and chronic fatigue syndrome.
Coconut water provides vital glucose and critical mineral salts, including potassium and sodium, to the bloodstream. This is a fundamental component of our neurotransmitter chemical production. If we don’t have the neurotransmitter chemicals we need, it can lead to insomnia, neurological sleep apnea, and other sleep disturbances. The best thing you can do to avoid these issues is to drink coconut water—it is the best tool of all time for neurotransmitter support. For those who struggle with infertility or other disorders of the reproductive system, take note that coconut water’s trace minerals and electrolytes nourish your reproductive tissue. Coconut water is also incredibly important for people with hypoglycemia and other blood sugar disorders, including diabetes. It’s critical for people with over or underactive adrenals. It’s good for every single brain and neurological disorder. Coconut water can greatly benefit people with Parkinson’s, and it’s also a must for those with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. It’s incredible for helping to prevent the onset of seizures and offers special support for eye conditions.
Coconut water is excellent for skin conditions and can be applied topically to heal, soothe, and hydrate skin. Coconut water is a universally appealing drink and is considered safe in pregnancy, infants, and the convalescent. Young green coconuts are readily available year-round in tropical regions such as Hawaii, South Florida, Philippines, Bermuda, Jamaica, Brazil, Thailand, and India and more recently coconut water can be found packaged and bottled and available in supermarkets throughout the United States and around the world.
Coconut meat (and the oil derived from it) is antipathogenic due to its lauric acid content combined with other antioxidants present in it, so turn to coconut when you’re in need of an antibacterial and antiviral food. When coconut drops from the stomach into the intestinal tract, it kills off any pathogen it touches. Plus, its medium-chain fatty acids break loose other fats and aid in pushing them out of the body.
If you have any of the following conditions, try bringing coconut into your life:
Postural tachycardia syndrome (POTS); Addison’s disease; Raynaud’s syndrome; adrenal fatigue; hypoglycemia; diabetes; thyroid cancer; tachycardia; atrial fibrillation; depression; anxiety; bipolar disorder; Asperger’s syndrome; insomnia; seizure disorders; optic nerve conditions; glaucoma; migraines; Parkin- son’s disease; Alzheimer’s disease; dementia; Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)/mononucleosis; HHV- 6; HHV-7; HHV-8; HHV-9; the undiscovered HHV-10, HHV-11, and HHV-12; thyroid disease; shingles; attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD); autism; thyroid nodules; urinary tract infections (UTIs); infertility; low reproductive system battery; sciatica; bacterial pneumonia; Lyme disease; mycoplasma; Chlamydia pneumoniae; parasites; carpal tunnel syndrome; depression; anxiety; hypertension; human papilloma virus (HPV); norovirus; pancreatitis; small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO); sunburn
If you have any of the following symptoms, try bringing coconut into your life:
Heart palpitations, grand mal seizures, arrhythmia, anxiousness, brain fog, blurry eyes, Bell’s palsy, memory loss, weight gain, food allergies, frozen shoulder, jaw pain, neuralgia, all neurological symptoms (including tingles, numbness, spasms, twitches, nerve pain, and tightness of the chest), back pain, blurry eyes, confusion, chemical sensitivities, mineral deficiencies, fatigue, listlessness, malaise, dehydration, headaches, difficulty swallowing, difficulty breathing, connective tissue inflammation, ear pain, foot pain, high blood pressure, sleep disturbances, low platelet counts, nervousness, ringing or buzzing in the ears, urinary urgency
Do you know anyone who travels through life reacting to everything with the response, “But how does this affect me?” If so, offer her or him coconut in any form. Coconut is for that person who’s narcissistic, self-consumed, and completely saturated in her or his singular world- view. Coconut opens the emotional channel for someone to let go of the self-addiction and weigh others’ needs and values alongside her or his own.
Coconut palms are quick to drop their coconuts in a storm. This comes from the trees’ wisdom of survival—they can either hold onto the coconuts and risk toppling as the winds whip through, or they can let go of them, and make themselves less vulnerable. It’s a lesson we would all do well to take to heart. When life gets stormy, we sometimes have to let go of what’s most precious to us, and it can feel like the end of the world. Coconut trees teach us that in the end, the sun comes back out, and what matters most is that you’re okay.
* When buying coconut water, only get it if it’s clear or very slightly tingedwith pink. It’s a misconception that deep pink or reddish coconut water is beneficial—in fact, this is a sign that it’s rapidly oxidizing and going bad. Also avoid any coconut water that contains natural flavors, citric acid, or sweeteners such as agave nectar or refined cane sugar.
* If you’re able to get ahold of some young, green coconuts, try to consume them over the course of a few days. If they sit too long without refrigeration, they’re liable to pop, and you’ll end up with coconut water on your walls and ceiling.
* If you don’t have access to fresh coconuts, some of the best forms to seek out include jarred coconut butter or frozen young coconut meat to use with dishes such as salads. For cooking, use coconut oil.
* Bring coconut into your life if you have a fear of swimming or open water. Coconut trees often grow on the coast, leaning over the water’s edge and dropping their coconuts into the ocean. Coconuts are excellent swimmers; they stay buoyant for long stretches of time and miles upon miles of open sea, taking on knowledge of the ocean as they oat, until they eventually reach a new shore where they can take root. When you consume coconut, you inherit this natural instinct for life on the water, which helps to strengthen you as it alleviates your aquatic anxiety.
* Coconut in the evening is ideal for those who have trouble sleeping during a full moon. The coconut provides extra mineral salts and electrolytes for your neurotransmitters and electrical impulses; this helps defend you from the full moon’s subtle gravitational pull.
