**What is Coconut Water and Why is it so good for you?
Coconut water is the liquid inside a young, green coconut. It is different than coconut milk, which comes later when the coconut mature or coconut cream or paste, which are byproducts of the coconut meat.
There is nothing else in nature like coconut water, nor is there any other man made beverage with the benefits of coconut water.
COCONUT WATER IS NATURALLY STERILE:
By the time the coconut water filters through the coconut palm, shell, husk, and meat of the tree, the coconut the water is clean and pure, more than the purest water from any spring - it's 100% naturally sterile.
A SUBSTITUTE FOR PLASMA According to various resources, "coconut water was used as a blood plasma substitute during World War II for soldiers fighting in the Pacific who were without blood plasma for transfusions." How can this be? Because coconut water is in perfect ph and electrolyte balance with human blood and it's naturally sterile, as mentioned above, it served as a perfect substitute.
