COCONUT

Binomial name: Cocos nucifera

Composition: containing 1-2% Oza and polyol, organic acids (malic acid), and many other amino acids: diphenyl 1-3ure [1]. Coconut water is rich in inorganic ions such as Potassium (290 mg%), Sodium (42 mg%), Calcium (44 mg%), Magnesium (10 mg%), Phosphorus (9.2 mg%),…The concentration of these electrolytes provides an osmotic pressure equal to the osmotic pressure in the blood and has no effect on coagulation [2].

Coconut water also works to detoxify trace minerals and alleviate symptoms of toxicity when drug overdose. Coconut water also helps us absorb the drug better and reach peak concentrations more easily through electrolytes, similar to the mechanism by which fructose is absorbed quickly into the body [16].

The antimicrobial activities of coconut water have medicinal uses, and are considered a good drink for cholera patients because of its saline salt and albumin; also for patients with urinary infections or diarrhea. The high concentration of potassium in coconut water has effects on cardiovascular protection [3].

High potassium concentrations in coconut water have been reported making blood pressure lowered. Antioxidant effects of the amino acid L-arginine (30 mg / dL) presenting in coconut water are effective against the generation of free radicals. In addition, in coconut water, there is Vitamin C (15 mg / 100mL), which works to reduce lipid peroxidation. The hepatoprotective activity of coconut water was demonstrated from histopathological studies of the liver, which did not show any adipose infiltration or necrosis, as observed in mice infected with CCl4 [4]

In addition to its anti-aging and anti-cancer effects, Kinetin in coconut water also has ability of anti-platelet aggregation, and may be a potential agent in arterial thrombosis treatment. Kinetin inhibits platelet aggregation, which may later prevent blood clotting [15].   

We source our Coconuts from the Organic Coconut Garden in Ben Tre. Coconut farms are certified to use no chemical fertilizers, no chemical pesticides, no grazing livestock, and no fish toilet inside the garden. Dual benefit from organic coconut farming. Coconut soil is converted organically from 2-3 years to American and European organic standards.

BEN TRE becomes the capital of Vietnam with a coconut processing industry of high value-added stature in Southeast Asia, Asia.


Ben Tre is the last islet that receives alluvium of the Mekong before flowing to the sea, the favorable waters, fertile clay and mud, rich in humus, and many good antibacterial conditions create favorable conditions for coconut to grow with better yielding fruit and fruit quality than other regions.

In CO-DI we call coconut: “the fruit makes your lungs green”
