The coconut in this juice recipe delivers a dose of electrolytes similar to those that balance out our own blood. In fact, doctors have used coconuts to help fight dehydrating diseases such as cholera, dysentery, and influenza, helping save the lives of thousands of children in underdeveloped parts of the world, according to Organic Avenue founder Denise Mari. Coconut water is available in many stores and restaurants (We love Organic Avenue's Indo Coconut Water!), or you can make one for yourself.
