Coconut water is something very few people think about as nutritional. We tend to think of drinking coconuts as a tropical treat, imagining ourselves wandering along a beach in the south pacific, green coconut in hand, decked with all the trimmings of fancy straw and little colourful cocktail umbrella’s. But don’t let the term water fool you, it is so much more than that, and is something you should definitely include during the early detox stages of a juice fast, indeed, something you should probably include in your regular diet fasting or not, and here’s why…
Benefits of Pure Natural Coconut Water
Hydration: Now you might be thinking, with all this juice and water I am drinking, how could I possibly be dehydrated? And that is a valid question. Think about this though, during a juice fast your body is detoxing, and it does this by flushing accumulated toxins out via various forms of liquid such as sweat, mucus, and of course pee. But toxins aren’t the only thing getting flushed through your system, you’re also losing important salts, known as electrolytes. And guess what; pure, natural coconut is loaded with these important minerals!
What are electrolytes I hear you ask? Well, to put it simply they are ion’s that transmit electrical messages between your cells. Sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium and many other minerals are in fact electrolytes. And you need them to feel good, alive, and energised.
When detoxing you can often have symptoms of dehydration such as headaches, lethargy, and even constipation. If you were an elite athlete you’d probably reach for a sports drink, a practice I can never quite understand considering all the other garbage that comes in sports drinks. But if you love your body and want to eat clean natural food then you’d shimmy up the nearest coconut tree and grab yourself a nice young green coconut. Gosh they are hard to open though, so I’d recommend you just buy one at the store.
Look for a brand that is not made from concentrate, has no added sweetener, no preservatives or additives, and if strictly fasting, no pulp.
But there is more to coconut water than just a natural hydrator…
by the way, did you know coconut water has been administered intravenously1 to dehydrated patients? It’s true. But have you ever seen a patient hooked up to a Gatorade bottle? I didn’t think so. And besides, coconut water has up to 15x more potassium than sports drinks anyway.
Other things coconut water is good for…
As well as hydrating electrolytes, coconut water has a lot of beneficial enzymes that assist with digestion and metabolism. In the early stages of detox you may experience an upset tummy and diarrhoea. The electrolytes will aid in rehydrating after getting ‘the runs’, and the enzymes will help to settle your tummy…however, it can also act as a diuretic and aid in constipation. Bit of a dilemma that one, but if you experience either of these problems, try it and see if it helps.
Breaking Down Stones
This is a really interesting one. According to an article in the Journal of Research in Medical Education & Ethics2 coconut water contains dialyzable molecules. These molecules as the word implies, dialyse the blood, i.e.. they clean it, breaking down the oxalate’s that stick together and form various stones in kidneys, gall bladder and even muscles.
Why is this so interesting to a juicer? Well, juicers tend to consume a lot of dark, leafy, high oxalate plants. For most people this is not a problem, but for those who might be prone to stones it could be. Based on the dialysing ability of coconut water alone I would highly recommend all juicers have at least 250mls (8oz) of coconut water every day, detoxing or not.
