Never heard about this before!!

Few people (even fewer doctors) understand how important the coconut
is to stabilizing blood sugar; lowering cholesterol; healing;
hydration; and even replacing blood plasma in an emergency.

  Referred to as kalpa vriksha (Sanskrit for "the tree that supplies
all that is needed to live") in ancient India, the coconut palm has
been recognized as a top immune booster, antifungal, antibiotic,
antiviral, and antibacterial remedy for thousands of years all over
the world.   Yet, it has only been recently that modern researchers
have begun to fully discover the massive health benefits this amazing
fruit offers.

    To give just one example of coconuts' life-saving properties, they
were used extensively in the Pacific during World War II.  Since blood
plasma supplies were scarce, it was very common for medics to siphon
pure coconut water from young coconuts to be used as emergency plasma
transfusions for soldiers who were injured.  Since coconut water is
nearly identical to human blood, it was suitable for people of all
blood types.

    Because of its strong antioxidant properties, the coconut can be used to:

==> Lower cholesterol
==> Improve digestion
==> Ward off wrinkles
==> Stabilize glucose levels
==> Fight off viruses
==> Build cells
==> Regulate hormones
==> Increase thyroid production
==> Lose weight
==> Increase metabolism
==> Fight infections
==> Stave off memory loss
==> Kill bacteria
==> And more!

     Considered one of the most treasured foods of all time, coconut
products -- including coconut flesh, coconut water, coconut oil, and
coconut cream -- each deliver superb health benefits.

    Coconut oil, for instance, is considered the best and safest oil
to use for cooking -- even superior to extra virgin olive oil when it
comes to giving the body what it needs for optimum health.  Unlike
other fats and oils that we  typically use for cooking and baking,
coconut oil does not form polymerized oils or dangerous trans fatty
acids in our bodies, which can raise our cholesterol levels; clog our
arteries and even make our skin sag and wrinkle.  Plus, this
ultra-safe oil can give your body important antioxidants that can help
build stronger cells and improve your overall health and well being.

    Here are a few ways that you can use coconut products to stave off
disease and to recapture the look and feeling of youth:

Coconut Water - The coconut is a natural water filter.  It takes
almost 9 months for a coconut to filter every quart of water stored
within its shell.  This makes the resulting coconut water completely
pure and sterile, which is one reason why it can be used for blood

    Another benefit of coconut water is the fact that it has the
highest concentration of electrolytes than anything else found in
nature. This makes it an excellent source of hydration.

Coconut Oil - In addition to being superior for cooking and baking,
coconut oil also makes a superb topical oil that can help to naturally
rid the skin of dangerous toxins.  It also gives the skin the perfect
mix of hydration and antioxidants that it needs to stay healthy,
smooth and younger-looking longer.

    Another great benefit of coconut oil is in protecting your teeth
from the bacteria that can cause cavities and disease.  Simply rubbing
a little fresh coconut oil on your gums and teeth can keep them
stronger and healthier than virtually any other dental treatment. Pure
Virgin Coconut oil promotes luxuriant hair growth on the head

    Most people don't realize that coconut oil can actually help you
lose weight !  Yes, simply changing your cooking oil from the
unsaturated fat variety to coconut oil can help you lose those extra

Here's why:   Unsaturated fats found in canola, corn and other
vegetables oils, as well as margarine  suppress the metabolism , which
makes it harder to lose weight -- and easier to gain it.  Over time,
this metabolism suppression may result in 20-30 pounds of excess
weight that your body cannot get rid of.  Coconut oil, on the other
hand, helps to increase thyroid function and boost your metabolism --
2 important components to shedding unwanted pounds.

Coconut Cream - The best skin treatment product one can use to achieve
flawless skin may quite possibly be coconut cream.  Unlike traditional
skin creams which can actually introduce fats and oils to the skin
that will break it down over time, making it look older, creams
derived from the coconut can actually replenish the skin, giving it a
more youthful and healthy glow than most other skin care products on
the market.

    When it comes to buying coconut products, coconuts are not all
created equal.  Wild coconuts are always best, but can be hard to
obtain if you don't live in a tropical country.  Whether you are using
this wonder food to boost your immune system; increase your metabolism
or fight wrinkles, using products from young coconuts will help you
reap the most benefit.

     Young coconuts contain the purest unsaturated fat, compared to
the fat found in the more mature varieties.  This is why they offer
the most rejuvenation properties for the body's tissues.  But how can
you tell how old a coconut is?  Young coconuts are usually green in
colour and oddly shaped.  The brown hairy ones are mature coconuts,
and while they offer a lot of healthy benefits, they aren't nearly as
good for you as younger varieties.

    The best place to find young fresh coconuts is, of course, in the
markets of the tropics, so be sure to seek them out if you travel to
those areas.  Coconut-producing regions export coconuts all over the
world, however, so it's relatively easy to find coconuts at your local
health food store or Asian grocer.

So I reckon Toddy made from coconut sap should be good for your body
too - get drunk huh!.
