I should coco

July 12, 2011

Dr Martins' Coco DrinkHiding inside every young green coconut is a fantastic resource — coconut water. It is rich in health-giving nutrients and is known as the ‘Fluid of Life’ thanks to its perfect mixture of electrolytes that balance the body’s natural fluid levels.

It can be extremely difficult to find an organic green coconut in the UK and so instead, we have Dr Martin’s Coco Drink. Dr Martin’s Coco Drink contains nothing but pure organic juice from young green coconuts (cocos nucifera) and is the next best thing to drinking fresh juice straight from the coconut.

As well as being incredibly refreshing, Coco Drink is an effective way to replenish fluids and salts lost during sporting activities and is much more effective than any heavily-marketed energy drink. Coconut water is an isotonic beverage and naturally contains potassium, calcium, magnesium and sodium, which quickly help to rehydrate your body. This is especially beneficial during and after any physical activity — including performing on stage! One of the UK’s best-loved male bands regularly buys Coco Drink from Detox Your World for use on tour and to maintain their energy levels when performing. We wish we could name names but instead we’ll just take a moment to imagine them all drinking Coco Drink. With no shirts on.

Coco Drink is rich in essential minerals, amino acids and vitamins, especially vitamin C. It is free from cholesterol, lactose, milk-protein, preservatives and colourings. Coco Drink is beneficial for people suffering with lactose intolerance, especially children, as it is a versatile alternative to milk and contains calcium to help strengthen growing bones.

Dr Martins’ Coco Drink is suitable for people of any age group thanks to its organic composition and natural preservation process, ensuring it is free from bacteria. As Coco Drink contains nothing but 100% pure coconut juice, it is free from saturated fats and has a very low calorific value, the lowest of all natural juice drinks. It is also free from refined sugars and is low in carbohydrates. Coconut water contains large quantities of lauric acid, an important fat. The only other substance containing equal levels of lauric acid is breast milk.

The coconut juice found in Dr Martins’ Coco Drink comes from an organically certified plantation in Brazil that grows a specific species of dwarf coconut palm tree especially for Dr Martins’. The coconut trees are grown without synthetic fertilisers or chemical nasties.

The coconut palm, or cocos nucifera, can grow to heights of 100ft and is a common sight on tropical beaches. The plant was named by Spanish explorers, who thought the three indentations on the coconut resembled a monkey — the Spanish word coco means ‘monkey face’. Nucifera means nut-bearing. It is an incredibly versatile plant with the all parts of the coconut as well as the leaves being used in some way. In Sanskrit, the coconut palm is known as kalpa vriksha, which means ‘tree that gives all which is necessary for living’. It is estimated that approximately one third of the world’s population depends on the coconut palm for their food or income.

Coconut juice has been used in traditional medicine for centuries and is reported to have many health benefits. Coconuts also contain anti-viral, anti-microbial and anti-fungal properties however the main benefit of coconut water is its natural isotonic properties, quickly and effectively rehydrating the body and rebalancing electrolyte levels. It is naturally sterile and identical to human blood plasma and it is reported that in some parts of the Pacific during World War Two, coconut water was regularly used to give emergency transfusions to wounded soldiers. This is where it gained its named as the Fluid of Life.

As well as our world-famous customers, other celebrities have also discovered coconut water, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Madonna, Courtney Cox and Demi Moore who are reported to enjoy it as a post-workout drink.

No Bull
To make your own energy drink without gallons of caffeine, sugar and junk, simply mix equal quantities of Dr Martins’ Coco Drink with fresh celery juice. Enjoy before, during and after any physical activity to naturally restore fluids and rebalance your electrolyte levels.

The Jason
For another variation, try mixing Coco Drink with freshly squeezed orange juice. Enjoy with or without your shirt on.

As a single, free-spirited soul who loves nothing more than whipping up a cauldron of raw cacao, her days would surely have been numbered.
