Replace Your Sports Drink with CocosPure Coconut Water

CocosPure Coconut WaterCoconut water has become popular in the past 10 years as a nutritious energy drink. While it should not totally replace water for hydration, it is definitely superior to energy drinks that are full of sugar or caffeine, even chemical additives. Such energy drinks might provide quick energy but then they let you down quickly. What is the cost to your health to use them? It’s best to replace your sports drink.

CocosPure Coconut Water

On the other hand, coconut water, the juice from young coconuts, is high in potassium. One 12 oz. can of coconut water contains 690 mg of potassium, more potassium than a banana and certainly more than popular sports drinks which contain 140 mg. Our western diet is low in potassium and it is important to athletes as it prevents muscle cramps.

While most commercial coconut water products are pure coconut water, it’s important to read the labels as some contain sugar, fruit juices or other additives. One of the best coconut water products on the market is by The Cocos Pure Beverage Corp and is available in health food stores and by special order. Why not try some today?

Here’s 3 Ways to Enjoy Coconut Water Drinks

CoCos Pure Premium Pineapple 464x467Coconut water was at one time disregarded as a product for consumption. When harvesting coconuts it was often thrown away. Recently, however, it has been “discovered” as a very nutritious drink to replace sugary soda pop and sports drinks. According the staff at PaleoHacks, coconut water has huge benefits.

Coconut water serves as the perfect moisturizer and hydration substance, as it hosts more than 16 vitamins and minerals, being a natural alternative to sports and energy drinks; it also has up to 5 times less sugar than the commercially available concoctions marketed as “invigorating.” One of the lesser known benefits of it is that it acts as an effective solution in reducing the feelings of a hangover, a quite unpleasant, yet sometimes encountered effect of consuming alcoholic drinks in excess, being able to diminish the bursts of regurgitation and feeling of sickness. Similar to sports drinks, but doing it in a natural way, it replenishes the body’s need for electrolytes and lost minerals.

In addition to its very nutritious nature, it mixes well with other ingredients to make even more nutritious drinks. Here are three you might like to try, especially before and after physical activity to perk up you day.

Coconut Water Recipe – Malaysian Curry Chicken

cocos_product-image-2_464x467pxThis recipe comes to us from . I found it amusing that in this modern day of frozen dinners and fast food, Ms. I-Hua considers herself lazy because she doesn’t grind her own spices or make her own sauces. You might find this coconut water recipe too spicy so tone down the spices as you like. You may not be able to find all these ingredients but do your best. Also, this recipe calls for creating you own coconut water by pressing the coconut meat that has been soaked in warm water. We know a better source of good coconut water from CocosPure, right?

Ingredients:

500-600 g of Chicken Breast (cut into rough chunks)
meat curry powder
3 dried red chillies (use with caution)
a pinch of Salt
4 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tbsp chopped garlic
2 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
1 tbsp fish sauce
1 tbp Sambal Olek
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp ground white pepper

1 cup of toasted desiccated coconut (grated)
1 cup of coconut water (CocosPure is the best)
1 Kaffir lime leaf (shredded finely)
sliced red chillies (for garnishing)

Procedure:

Coat the chicken pieces in the curry powder and salt and set aside.

In a hot wok (or frying pan), heat up 4 tablespoons of vegetable oil. Once the oil is hot enough, brown the chicken in the wok on all sides. Take out and set aside.

Using the same oil, toss in the chopped garlic, dried red chillies and sambal olek. Once the aroma starts wafting up, gently pour some coconut water into the wok letting it simmer gently.

Add in the Worcestershire sauce, fish sauce, sugar and ground white pepper and let simmer.

Turn the heat back up on high and toss the browned chicken back into the simmer sauce and give it a good mix.

Add in half a cup of the toasted coconut making sure to mix all ingredients in the wok as to coat everything.

As the sauce thickens up, add in the remaining coconut water and let it simmer gently.

Once the sauce thickens up again, turn off the heat and transfer the curry to a serving dish.

Garnish with the remaining toasted coconut, shredded kaffir lime leaf and sliced red chillies.    Read more here.

Coconut Water – Any Side Effects?

No Tag-01While coconut water is not considered a medicine, it’s good to look at the safety of everything you eat and drink. There are known side effects to simple foods or liquids such as tap water or cow’s milk. What about coconut water? Remember that coconut water is the liquid found inside an immature fresh coconut, and of course this is the pure form.

According to webmd.com, coconut water is used to treat high blood pressure and dehydration resulting from diarrhea or excess exercise. Thus instead of side effects, here is a place where coconut water is used as an aid to sickness. In fact, in the absence of blood transfusions, coconut water has been substituted due to its high level of vitamins and minerals plus electrolytes. However, there are a few occasions when it should not be taken.

Patients should stop consuming coconut water a minimum of two weeks prior to a scheduled surgery, and they should speak with a doctor before drinking it while taking medications for high blood pressure, as recommended by WebMD. Those who are pregnant or breast-feeding should avoid coconut water due to a lack of research concerning its safety during these periods. Read more here.

It’s interesting that it can used to treat high blood pressure but should not be taken at the same time as other medications for high blood pressure. The fact that coconut water contains electrolytes is a great bonus to good health. Our modern diets are often lacking sufficient quantity of electrolytes. Here are some of the health problems that develop from low levels of electrolytes.

Providing electrolytes and hydrating the body are essential steps to maintaining overall health. Electrolytes help maintain muscle function and balance the body’s fluids. Suffering from improperly balanced electrolytes results in weakness, heart palpitations, and muscle cramping. Chronic dehydration leads to ailments such as headaches, fatigue, constipation, and decreased urine output. Read more here.

I hope you are getting the picture that there are very few side effects to coconut water. Only pregnant women or people taking other medications need consult their doctors before drinking it. There are an incredible number of health and medical benefits for coconut water to balance the few restrictions. I can personally testify that during a trip to a foreign country I contracted some diarrhea-causing bug, and coconut water was the only thing that stopped it. In fact it was the only thing I could keep down. I was relieved to have discovered this natural medicine.

CocoPure is a company that takes pride in producing the purest coconut water with as little heating or other processing as possible. Why not order some today?

Coconut Oil as a Bad Breath Remedy for Your Dogs

Food Products 02There are a number of common causes for bad breath with dogs. Be sure to take good care of teeth and gums. Your dog will need those teeth to eat. Yes, you can brush your dog’s teeth to cut down on gum and tooth decay, just as we do with our own teeth. There are long-handled tooth brushes at most pet stores, so that getting into your dog’s mouth is easier. Just lift up the side lip and insert the brush.

But before you do that, this is where coconut oil comes in. Use it as a toothpaste. Dogs will love the sweet taste and coconut products sweeten the breath too. I brush my dog’s teeth several times a week and then I let her lick the brush. This cleans her tongue, another source of that bad breath. Here’s what Julia Szabo, pet health guru for the online site, Dogster, has to say about coconut oil.

Coconut oil is one of those pantry items you should never be without. It doesn’t just boost digestive, immune system, and metabolic functions — it also helps to combat canine bad breath. Put a lovin’ teaspoonful over your dog’s food every single day, and you’ll soon sniff sweeter breath — plus dogs love the taste; for them, coconut oil is a sweet treat. Some dog lovers even brush their pets’ teeth with coconut oil, making the chore an offer even ornery canines can’t refuse!

She thinks coconut oil is an important addition to a dog’s regular diet as well. She sites numerous reasons to add a teaspoon full to the dog food daily. It 1) improves of coat and fur (thicker and shinier), 2) reduces yeast (candida) and viral infections (kennel cough), 3) helps with arthritis, 4) regulates diabetes, and 5) with cinnamon can help avoid dementia. Sounds like a wonder food to me. However, the bottom line is what works, so give coconut oil a chance and let us know your results. OK?

CocosPure will soon have a pure version of coconut oil for sale. If you are interested in receiving some of the first coconut oil containers, click the link below.

How to Fast with Coconut Water

Drink 2 liters of water per day. The amount depends on you body type, age and season you are fasting. It’s better not to drink more than this amount as it can have a diuretic effect. Just sip it when you feel dehydrated or hungry. You can of course drink regular water as well.  Continue for at least 3 days and you will feel like a new person by the end.

While it is best to drink right from the coconut, not everyone has access for green coconuts with lots of water inside.

The product, Cocos Pure is the purest and one of the least processed. Why not try it today?
