Did you know…

I’ve seen this before, but

it seemed a bit far fetched to me.

Upon further research, I discovered that

coconut water, from a

completely sealed coconut

is sterile. However, it’s not identical to

our blood plasma. It contains

1/40 of the salt and

10 to 15 times more potassium,

compared to our blood plasma.

So, it’s not ideal.

But, it has been used

intravenously on several occasions…

in emergency situations.
