Coconuts are one of the greatest gifts on this planet. No matter where you are, what you have done, how much you have mistreated your body, fresh young coconut flesh, coconut water, coconut cream, and/or coconut oil can save your life.
The coconut is a natural water filter that takes almost nine months to filter each liter (quart) of water in the shell. This clear coconut water is one of the highest sources of electrolytes found in nature.
Young coconut water is nearly identical to human blood plasma, making it a universal donor. During the Pacific battles of World War ll, between 1941 and 1945, both sides in the conflict used coconut water siphoned directly from the coconut to give emergency plasma transfusions to wounded soldiers. Plasma makes up 55 percent of the human blood. The remaining 45 percent of our blood consists of hemoglobin-which is essentially transformed plant blood (chlorophyll).
When we consume a drink consisting of 55 percent fresh coconut water and 45 percent fresh green-leaf juice (or wheatgrass juice) we give ourselves an instant blood transfusion.
