I enjoyed this refreshing coconut water drink and believe I was having, a healthy, natural beverage served in a fun environment beside a beautiful view, opened in front of me.
I do not believe the claims that coconut water is identical to human blood plasma nor that it has any magic weight loss properties.
Just because something is printed, published, out on the web or in a bookstore does not make it so.
Just because it is being bottled in the US and marketed as a slimming food, by a skinny celebrity model, does not make it a magical properties, slimming food. I think that claim is laughable.
I rarely automatically believe articles claiming super powers for any produce, and search for the backup, research notes and check the credentials of the institutions and researchers, making the claims and watch for the 'similar' sounding names to the legitimate research organizations that the 'fake' research papers may contain.
One berry company has a lot of blog posts on the internet proportion to be a genuine research by one single person, the anchor lady of a news program. One fictional person does not make a research project. It is hard to say, 'do not believe, people', but where your money and dreams are concerned, it is wise to read, what isn't actually being said as well as what they tell you.
I have heard that coconut water is about to be marketed as a high priced health drink, it is happening overseas, I am getting in, before the ' drink this and lose x amount of weight fast', claims hit Australia, to say, 'it's a delicious drink fresh and chilled and most likely healthy, it isn't magic'.
A dose of healthy skepticism and a demand, that promoters back their claims with research papers from reputable organizations, is a healthy as natural foods in a balanced diet and we need to realize that no one food, or magic berry, will have you losing 20 kilo on 8 weeks unless perhaps that is all you eat and your exercise is running to the loo all the time. Read between the lines, read what is not there, and look for the backup reputable research and know that just because it is published, it does not have to be true.
