"COCO" Coconut juice. Refreshing you!
The favourite drink of the tropics is now available in Spain.
Natural coconut juice provides all the electrolytes present in the blood. It is also isotonic.
The coconut juice contains all the nutrients our body require for total re-hydratation, fluid replacement or loss. The coconut juice is very low in fat and carbohydrate content, has no cholesterol, and itï¿½s high in calcium, magnesium and potasium, so it is also good for the heart.
There is a world-wide trend, scientifically suported, to drink isotonic beverages to avoid hypo and hipertonic dehydratations. Electrolytes like sodium and potasium must be included in the composition of these isotonic beverages, in order to restore the losses of these mineral salts through urinary and skin pathways.
The coconut juice is a natural isotonic beverage. Its components are easyly absorbed, offsetting the losses of mineral salts, and restoring the electrolyte balance of the blood.
In times of medical emergency, coconut juice was used as a substitute for glucose. In World War II, young coconut juice became the emergency room glucose supply when there was no sterile glucose available.
Tastes good! Unique taste and aroma.
In tropical Asia, coconut is used in different stages of ripeness. When they are young and green, the clear juice inside is sweet and refreshing. The coconut juice has its own unique natural fragance with a subtle hint of flowers. Its well-balanced chemical composition results in a natural isotonic solution with a very pleasant flavour.
You will be surprised at the thirst-quenching, delightfully sweet liquid inside. In the Philippines, young coconut meat serves as a nourishing breakfast meal as well as a delicious light dessert.
Scientific studies have shown that populations in Polynesia and Sri Lanka, where coconuts are a diet staple, do not suffer from high serum cholesterol or high rates of heart desease.
A taste from the tropics.
The coconut has been part of the tropical diet for centuries.
All the native population of the Brazilian Coast, the Amazon, the Caribbean Islands, and the Southwest and South Asia have always known of its outstanding properties. Early Sanskrit writings reveal that the people of India used coconuts as a staple food and for a variety of other everyday needs.
In India, the coconut palm was known as "kalpa vriksha", which might be translated as "tree that gives all that is necessary for living". The Indonesians say that "there are as many uses for the coconut as days in the year". The palm tree, cocos nucifera, is considered "a three generation tree, feeding the farmer, his son and his grandchildren".
Coconuts are the fruit of the palm tree. And as we have bread, wine, oil, vinegar, so they get all those things from the said trees... With two of these palm trees a whole family of ten can sustain themselves for a hundred years.
