Has anyone used coconut water? There is a host of benefits too numerous to mention. My wife is taking a low dose of commumdin & was wondering if coconut water would effect it?
Dizziness Remedies...Coconut Water!
I've been dealing with dizziness for the past three weeks or so and I know that it is an electrolyte imbalance for me, although in others it could be dehydration! Trying to find the right ratio of minerals is tough. Since I have candida, I cannot do the typical sports drink or anything, although I heard of one that does not have sugar that the pharmacy recommends that starts with an E.
That said, what I use is coconut water which is the juice from raw coconut. It has the best balance of electrolytes so I always keep a cup in the refrigerator and an extra coconut as well.
If anyone has an excellent electrolyte replacement recipe please let me know!!!
I concur about coconut juice. When I suffered from severe dehydration, it was the only thing that got me back. Now I use it preventatively before, during, or after intense exercise. It is even used in IV's for severe dehydration because it has the perfect balance of electrolytes. It tastes good and none of the fructose etc. of sports drinks. there are several brands you can buy at stores such as Henry's, Jimbo's, Whole foods etc.

In response to Marea, who asks about a sports energy drink for her son... I have this suggestion. Coconut water. This is a natural, highly nutritive substance which I feel will meet your son's needs quite nicely. It is, quite possibly, the perfect after sports beverage. It is easy to come by providing you can secure a coconut, hammer, and screwdriver. Enjoy.
Coconut water may help with cataracts.
Where I live, its a common remedy to drink coconut water if you got kidney stones.
