      We buy coconut juice here in any little town for only 25 cents a glass. It’s getting scarcer and harder to find, though because it’s all being harvested to send overseas. It’s really better to eat and drink regionally. Less of a carbon footprint. Wow…5 dollars a piece, eh….whew..not good. I like your channel a lot. My wife and I always watch you two do your thang and alway good info., too…keep up the good work, peeps!

      Wow and I thought I had it cheap buying a 12 pack for 10 bucks discounted for buying wholesale… I go through 1 or more a day but 25 cents a glass – where are you located?

      Cconuts own my heart almost as much as avocados do. They have saved me, honestly, from IVS in the hospital. The husk issue really upsets me though, not enough to stop buying my weekly 12 pack but urks the back of my mind knowing what is going on. I wish I could afford to buy ones that in bulk amounts that weren’t dipped – now at Rainbow they sell organic ones that I get to drink while there, I believe they are young – maybe I can work out a deal if I buy them wholesale there. I would prefer this

      Also, it’s so nice you reviewed all these people. Everyone who has tried Artisana’s coconut products knows how succulent sweet they are. I don’t use them anymore, if I want coconut I eat it fresh. Thet goes for all my foods though. Anyhow, beautiful yellow on you! Coconut, highest electroylte drink! ditch that crappy ass gatorade people and grab a coconut, butcher’s knife – hack! – and a straw and slurp away!!!

      I also want to add that I give the meat of the coconut to my dog on a daily basis and it’s been a wonderful dietary aid and made this coat so beautiful. He LOVES the taste of it. I just mix it in with his raw beef and fresh fruit and veggies/juicer pulp from my organic juicing. When I have Vitamineral raw green power I use that too or seaweeds crush on top. You can dehydrate chunks of coconuts for dog treats. Sweet potatoes also work great for this purpose too.

      wow, 25 cents a glass is phenomnal. i agree that we should eat more locally. the bulk of our food comes from our local farmers market on sundays. we try not to eat coconuts everyday. they are more of a treat! we hear ya, definitely need to limit consumption of food abroad 🙂 thank you so much. appreciate the wonderful comments too! 🙂

    • RawHealingPatch

      yeah, our pug loves coconut too! and phoebe the lab/shepard likes it once in a while and does love coconut oil 🙂 so glad coconuts have kept you off IVS, that is incrtedible!!! 🙂 xo

      Ohhh…forgot to say that we’re living in PANAMA, Central America. Everything is much cheaper here, to be sure. But my wife IS Panamanian, thus we retired down here.

      Julie I still have to watch part 2 but you really got me thinking aka freaking about formaldahydes – spelling please!? what is the absorption chance/rate of them actually getting into the coconut meat and water through the thick husk? how long does it take to absorb in there after dipped? are they like bathing in chemicals or only absorbing some? what are the risks/dangers of this chemical? I have never seen non dipped ones at WF, only boring brown…Rainbow here has organic thai, affordable

    • RawHealingPatch

      i think the amount of healing you are getting from drinking the thai water is definitely outweighing the chemical traces you MIGHT get. i have not seen studies yet on how much absorbs into the meat and water. mostly, people need to be aware not to drink the water by putting your mouth on the outside of the coconut. better to pour it out or use a straw. and if you pour it, try not to let it run down along the outside. little stuff like that can help keep chemicals out of the water…

    • RawHealingPatch

      …part 2 is up now so you can watch. we found organic thai cocnuts and show them so people knjow what to look for. the dipped ones definetly contain a great deal of toxicity outside, but luckily coconuts are much thicker skinned than soft fruuit and much less contamination gets into them. so, at this point i would not lose sleep over it. keep enjoying them and using their healing benefit, and when available do a few organic ones 🙂 the risks/dangers of the chemicals used vary…

    • RawHealingPatch

      …cont’d…i have heard everything from glandular issues to cancer, but of course that is in large amounts, etc… so just be conscious when cutting them, rinse first, and pour carefullly, and you should be fine! we still use the dipped ones sometimes, too, cuz that is all that’a around 🙂 later, skater!

    • MyOwnStickFigure

      totally helpful answers, thank you so much. I am sure many others were wondering these things, you have this entire series in my reusable shopping bag!

      So helpful!! Thank you! I bought a young one today. Now for the challenge of breaking that bad boy/girl open and getting the water and meat. So excited! 🙂
