In1982, one of our community services in California was visiting orphanages. In one orphanage, we met a boy named Bryan, from the Navajo-Hopi tribes, who was particularly attached to us. He would cry whenever we left the facility. After a number of visits, we learned that the US Social Services had picked him up from a tiny apartment, where his mother lay dead. She was only 28.
WHAT EXPERTS SAY
Coconut water as sports drink
Coconut researcher Bruce Fife, a naturopath doctor, writes in his book that electrolytes, also known as ions, are atoms or molecules with an electrical charge. The ability to charge allows electric current to flow through our bodies and facilitate many biological functions. We lose these electrolytes through sweat, urine, etc. That is why athletes need to replenish their body after every workout.
