I come from a place Kerala of India, where there are more coconut trees per square kilometer, than anywhere else on this planet.
So who could be more qualified than me than to write a piece on the magic of tender coconut water.
Recently the secret was spilled , that the pop singer Madonna, uses tender coconut water, to prevent ageing.
Immediately Coke and Pepsi made a dash to make money out of this. Pepsi started selling packages coconut water from Brazilian outlet Amococo. Coke, not to be outdone, started selling Zico. Many other US firms also jumped into the bandwagon.
All YE foolish people who drink this packaged stuff-- take this from Capt Vadakayil--
You must drink the tender coconut water within a minute of exposing the water from the opened coconut to the atmosphere. After 60 seconds the water dies.
The magic is in the QUANTUM action, of the pristine water.
It contains Lauric acid, found in Mothers milk.
The magic is NOT in the vitamins and minerals--of course it has mundane benefits-- but NOT the magic.
Tender coconut water is the most sterile and purest liquid on earth. It is the only liquid which can be used for intravenous plasma transfusions , as it is electrolytic. In the 2nd World war it saved so many soldiers from certain death, that it is called the water of life.
People in Kerala India drank coconut water, to recover faster from Chikunguniya ( break bone fever, Dengue ). Otherwise the terrible joint pains , take too long to subside.
Let me list out the good effects of LIVING coconut water:--
Prevents fatty liver problems
Increases libido and sexual performance for both sexes.
Revitalised the reproductive system , for barren couples.
Anti-oxidant and chases away free radicals.

Water is a perfect conductor of electricity and is thus important in the operation of our bodies. The electrical potential is shared between the brain neurons through electrochemical transmitters. This electrical potential of brain chemistry must be present for any of our "thoughts" to take place. The human brain is about 85% water.
Water is a good diet aid and fat reducer. It suppresses the appetite, reduces sodium buildup and helps maintain muscle tone. Water helps the body eliminate waste and toxins. It relieves fluid retention. If you don’t drink water , it holds onto to existing water tenaciously so it wont run out. When your kidneys don’t get enough water, it causes the liver to get overloaded.
Our bodies need the minerals that are in water. Our body cannot readily adsorb colloidal minerals. Our bodies can only absorb minerals which are water soluble. The bodies job is to transform food into atoms and molecules that are found in our bodies. This transformation occurs inside the cells in our bodies.
Every cell is like a building block or a little miniature factory which can process the food we eat into energy for growth and performance of its own particular body regulating function. Nutrients travel in the bloodstream, which will carry them to where they are needed.
We have more than 70 trillion cells in our body. Water passes through our cells on a regular basis . The cell has no way of passing anything through it that is not water soluble.
More than 60% of the bodies total water content is contained inside the cells.
Minerals decrease the surface tension of water leading to easier absorption in the large intestine resulting in better hydration.
Trace minerals support alkalinity of the tissues of the body by buffering acid.
Tender coconut water ( drunk within 2 minutes of opening ) is good for people who are on the road to Diabetes 2 - have one glass coconut water a day.
