SEVEN BENEFITS OF COCONUT WATER
BY TOMMY FASSBENDER Coconut water is the purest liquid second only to water itself. It has many health benefits and uses that you probably did not know about.
Many persons have gone to the Caribbean, the Pacific Islands, Florida, Hawaii, South America or Southern Asia and have tasted some very refreshing coconut water. The palm trees you have become accustomed to while on vacation are very potent sources of coconut water that has many health benefits and uses that you probably did not know about.
Coconut water is the purest liquid second only to water itself. It is chock full of electrolytes, calcium, potassium, magnesium; everything that is good for you.
Coconut water is the liquid that is taken from unripe coconuts. If coconuts get ripe the liquid that is inside will harden and become a part of the white flesh of the coconut, which is used to make coconut milk. So, picking the coconut while it is unripe will ensure that the body gets all the benefits of coconut water.
Coconut Water Hydrates the Body Coconut water is an isotonic solution which replaces the fluids and minerals that the body loses during physical activities. For this reason, many athletes and persons who work out regularly are encouraged to drink coconut water to replace all the minerals and fluid that they lose while working out. Even the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) attest to the benefits of drinking coconut water when it fought for a patent in 2000 to market coconut water as the next big sports drinks.
Coconut Water Relieves Urinary Problems If you consume coconut water on a regular basis it can reduce urinary problems. People who suffer from strangury, polyutra and other urinary ailments drink coconut water to relieve their symptoms.

...Coconut- Tree of Life
The Coconut Tree (Cocos Nucifera L.) is called "The Tree of Life" because of the endless list of products and by-products derived from its various parts. Food, shelter, fuel - name it, the coconut has it.
The coconut industry is considered a major dollar earner that provides livelihood to one-third of the country's population.
From coco meat can be obtained coco flour, desiccatedcoconut, coconut milk, coconut chips, candies, bukayo or local sweetened shredded coconut meat, latik copra and animal feeds.
Coco chips, which are curved and wrinkled coconut meat, is crisply toasted and salted. It is very popular in Hawaii.
Coconut flour can be used as a wheat extender in baking certain products without affecting their appearance or acceptability.
The coconut milk is a good protein source. Whole coco milk contains about 22% oil, which accounts for its laxative property.
Copra is dried coconut meat that has a high oil content, as much as 64%. Coconut oil is the most readily digested of all the fats of general use in the world. The oil furnishes about 9,500 calories of energy per kilogram. Its chief competitors are soya bean oil, palm oil and palm kernel oil.
Coconut oil retards aging. It counteracts...
Don't wallow, shoot into the shower
A quick shower uses far less water than a long soak in the tub. Think twice before you have one!
Save your washing up for one wash
Instead of washing up as you go, save it up and do it in one go to minimise the amount of water you use. As one MoneySaver says, it's a great excuse to leave the washing up!
Conserve water and 'mulch' your garden plants
Mulching garden plants (covering with wood chippings or leaf mould) reduces the need for watering as they will retain moisture for longer. See the BBC's guide on how to mulch.
Love the shade - keep plants out of the sun
Moving pot plants and house plants out of the sun helps limit the amount of water they need once they've had their fair share of sunshine.
Watering the plants? Don't forget your roots
Use the simple trick of an upside-down water bottle with holes in it to get water direct to the roots of your plants - this should help save waste.
Turn it off - don't run the tap
When cleaning don't run the tap, instead use a wash bowl to rinse cloths.
Clean the car smartly
When you really get to the point you have to clean the car, use a bucket of hot soapy water and a watering can of clean water to rinse - no need to use a hose at all. Consider using waterless valeting products too.

Now, as like an entrepreneur I want to do the same. I am undertaking to introduce a new product in the market, which is Tetra Pack CoconutWater. Though it’s a popular product in some countries like Thailand, Brazil, Australia and our neighbour country India but this is a very new idea of product in our country.
CoconutWaterCoconut is a very well known fruit in our country. We can find this everywhere. It’s a very effective one as well, because it’s a very popular and largely used medicine. It’s a fruit which mainly contains water in it’s inside. The water is very useful, effective and tasty aslo. It Contains;
Vitamin A, C, E, & K etc.
These are the most important food contents which are very much useful and needed for our health. For this reason I want to avail it as a new idea. I think it will be a successful step.
Aspects of the Business & Business Policies
There are some significant aspects of the business; for these aspects I think the business plan will be effective.
Coconutwater is very common in our country. So, here is a question in everyone’s mind, “Why Packaged CoconutWater Instead of Fresh CoconutWater?”
It’s a very important question, but I have...
...business plan of a product which is totally new named Piyash and it is to be launched in an existing market. This product will be launched in the beverage market to meet the demand of consumers for coconutwater which is not being provided by any company in the market although the mobile vendors are providing coconutwater to the people to some extent. As mobile vendors are not available everywhere in every time, it is easy for any company to skim money from the market by selling bottled coconutwater. Moreover, coconutwater contains promising amount of nutrition which is good for anyone. It can be bottled without adding any preservative. Furthermore, Bangladesh is a country situated in tropical region and coconut is highly available in tropical areas. Therefore, it’ll not cost that much for any company to bottle coconutwater and to seek profit as well. Another fact is that, as no company is bottling coconutwater and selling it in the market, it will be monopoly business as bottled coconutwater is not provided by other companies, although other beverage companies will be the rival for this product (i.e. Pepsi, 7up). Considering high profitability and the potential market for coconutwater Piyashis going to be launched in the market....

...CoconutWater Wax A Breakthrough in Fruit Preservation
This study utilized coconutwater to produce a wax preservative for fruit and other foodstuff.
Different fresh fruits were collected and assigned to four different treatments:
* Treatment I (Control): fresh fruits without anything done
* Treatment 2: fruits soaked in coconutwater for 10 minutes
* Treatment 3: fruits covered with coconutwater wax
* Treatment 4: refrigerated fruits
The fruits used were oranges and other citrus varieties, apples, and papaya.
To achieve the most favorable result, the prescribed procedure of making wax was exactly followed by weighing the components to the desired proportions-2000:100:50 [2000 milliliters (m1) coconutwater, 100 ml cooking oil, and 50 grams (g) bees wax]. The components were then mixed, cooked, and cooled.
Results show a significant difference in the duration of fruit freshness, with the fruits treated with coconutwater wax retaining freshness for the most number of days.
The coconut tree has so many uses that it is called the tree of life. Its leaves, husk, trunk, leaves, and meat have diversified uses. Even while the Philippines ranks among the world's largest coconut-producing countries, it has yet to maximize its...
CoconutWaterCoconutwater is said to be like a “superfood” because it supplies a great deal of minerals, vitamins, antioxidants, enzymes, and growth factors (Fife, 2010). Because of these valuable nutrients coconutwater can help the body with dehydration, vision problems, gives the body energy, fatigue, and constipation. I would say coconutwater could be classified as a major mineral because of the importance it serves to maintain our body functions.
If the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) can state coconutwater may reduce the risk of high blood pressure and stroke I think it would be a great idea of individuals start consuming coconutwater in their daily diet (Fife, 2010). I also believe if more people knew coconutwater has been said to reverse or slow the aging process more individuals would be testing that theory. With coconutwater having somewhat of a sweet taste perhaps people would be more inclined to drink this as an important function to the body.
With the ingredients such as the mineral content in the coconutwater it is close to what is in the human blood so this can really help with dehydration and malnutrition (Fife,...
