Did you know that coconuts are absolutely amazing for you?

Both coconut water and coconut oil are extremely healthy and can improve your overall well-being. Coconut water is full of ionized salts that transport energy through the body, which makes it the perfect natural Sport and Energy drink.
The molecular structure of coconut water is identical to human blood plasma, that's why it hydrates you immediately, and it's kind of like giving your body and instant blood transfusion.

Coconut water is very alkalizing, high in antioxidants and potassium and I love the sweet light fresh flavor too. It has anti-aging properties, enhances overall skin health, aids in kidney function, enhances eye health and is good for digestion and helps control diabetes. No wonder it's been given the nickname "the fluid of life".

Coconut oil is sometime referred to as the "Miracle Oil". It's saturated fat is the only kind that is of the medium- chain fatty acid variety, and it's sent directly to the liver where it is immediately converted to energy. It's perfect to cook with, and the oil actually speeds up the metabolism. It supports healthy metabolic functions, is anti- bacterial , anti- viral and is used throughout the world as a 'cure-all' gift from nature.


Here are some examples on how you can use Coconut Oil:

1. As a moisturizer and night cream, that improves elasticity in skin and lighten dark-spots.
2. As a light sunscreen (SPF 4) and tanning agent.
3. There is some evidence that regular use of coconut oil can help prevent Alzheimers.
4. Blend a tablespoon into a cup of hot tea to help speed up recovery from a cold or flu.
5. As a natural shave cream and after shave lotion.
6. To de-frizz and deep condition - simply massage it into the ends of your hair.
7. To stimulate hair growth - massage it into your scalp daily.
8. As a healthy brain booster and immediate source of energy that isn't stored as fat
9. Can be used to speed the healing of fungal infections.
10. By itself or with baking soda as a naturally whitening toothpaste.
