One of my amazing teachers and mentors, Donna Gates believes in the power of Coconut Water Kefir too!
Donna Gates website says,
“It completely stops your cravings for sugar. Imagine the benefits of that! It aids digestion of all foods. It has a tonifying affect on the intestines, even flattening the abdomen! It appears to cleanse the liver. In Chinese medicine the liver rules the skin, eyes, and joints. Coconut water kefir eases aches and joint pains. Many people report having a prettier complexion. They experience the brown liver spots on the skin fading away and skin tags, moles, or warts drying up and disappearing. Vision also improves. It contains high levels of valuable minerals, including potassium, natural sodium, and chloride, which explains why the hair, skin and nails become stronger and have a prettier shine. It appears to have a beneficial, cleansing effect on the endocrine system (adrenals, thyroid, pituitary, ovaries). Women find that their periods are cleaner and healthier; some who had experienced early menopause have found this important monthly cleansing returning again. It increases energy and gives you an overall feeling of good health.”
Now this is what I have to say about my coconut water kefir – yummy and easy to make.
