Greetings. New Zealand naturopath, Eric Bakker.
I’m the author of a book called Candida Crusher and formulator of the Canxida range of supplements.
Thanks for checking out my YouTube channel today. I’m going to answer a question I got
from a person recently in Japan. I get a lot of Japanese questions. Is coconut water good
for Candida? Coconut water is very good. I’ve been recommending
coconut water for patients probably for close on 30 years since I started enjoying it. Even
long before it became cool, I used coconuts in my diet. I can remember about 20 years
ago telling a group of doctors that coconut was great for your health and I got told I
was an idiot because it was a saturated fat and would cause heart disease. That’s what
some people thought back then. But now, it’s touted as a super health food. Same with kale.
I’ve been recommending kale for a long time and people thought I was nuts. And now, kale
is like the “in” thing. Coconut water, coconut cream and especially
coconut oil for cooking are really good solutions for you for cleaning up your digestive system
and supplying your body with lots of minerals. Coconut water is actually quite a sterile
substance. It’s very clean on the inside. You cut a green coconut open. It’s fantastic
to have the juice of one green coconut per day when you travel in underdeveloped countries.
It’s going to prevent traveler’s diarrhea and a lot of different sicknesses from happening.
Coconut also contains Capric and Caprylic acid, which are antifungal components. There
is a lot of potassium and other electrolytes in it. In fact, it’s literally got no sugar
and high in electrolytes, so it’s the perfect drink for sports people. And a lot of Hollywood
celebrities rely on coconut water. People who drink coconut water a lot have got beautiful
skin. I’ve noticed that. It can make a big difference for your health in general.
Is it a good drink to have when you’ve got a yeast infection? If you can, drink one coconut
or glass, eight ounces of coconut water per day and you watch the difference. It is incredible.
Especially when you combine that with some coconut oil for cooking and a bit of coconut
cream in curries. Yes, I think you’re going to find it to be a really good adjunct to
your diet. There’s also some talk that it contains prebiotic properties that the probiotics
in your system will benefit from. Absolutely. For that Japanese lady, I recommend you stick
with your coconut water. But again, like a lot of drinks, if you buy commercially, check
for sugar. If it’s got added sugar, don’t touch it. Thanks for tuning in.
