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.


About Tamara Hoerner (1303 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes β€œGood, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.
