Hi Gadgie, I don't know about coconut water - it's quite sweet isn't it? However I have been using coconut oil as a spread instead of butter/margerine as I have intolerances to all dairy products and sunflower oil. Coconut oil is anti-fungal and seems to be working well on the gut candida firstly on it's own [with the diet]and after 2 months, along with Oregano caps. Love and light, Deotima.
I tried to do research on coconut water also, but never found any conclusive information. Based on reading regarding coconut's antifungal properties, I decided it was OK to drink coconut water on my diet. I live in South Florida, so I enjoy it fresh from the nut (sneaking a few coconuts from the beach is fun), in jugs from the Caribbean market, or from Whole Foods in those handy TetraPaks. I did go overboard on it, drinking it every day, until I noticed it was making me feel lethargic. My nutritionist advised limiting total Sugar consumption to 15 grams a day, so now I just make sure I watch how much I drink, and have it only occasionally as one of my occasional sweet treats along with berries and Granny Smith applies.
