While supplementation is something most people hear about now a days, it hasn't had this mainstream popularity for that long. In fact, not too long ago the weirdo "health nuts" were the only ones using supplements. Then came the increase in demand for protein powders, pre-workouts, post-workouts and other fitness supplements from the bodybuilding community. Which spilled into the athletic community to help power high performance athletes. This caused the information to get out to the public on the benefits to these supplements, leading us to the present day where even the busy stay at home mom uses supplements to fill nutritional gaps, boost energy, replace a meal like breakfast and more! But, where did this story of supplementation really begin?

Lack of energy is something that almost all of us experience, some on a more regular basis than others. This has resulted in increased dependance on stimulating compounds such as caffeine, to maintain our daily lifestyles. From the coffee we brew in the morning to the energy drinks or soft drinks that we consume throughout the day to keep us going. Caffeine has become a fuel that many run on and desperately need. While caffeine itself may not be harmful, the other ingredients that tag along in some of these beverages definitely are!
Winter is coming! That means cold and flu season will be coming right along with it. Yes, that dreaded time of year where runny noses and coughs run rampant throughout work places, schools and supermarkets. When liquid hand sanitizer is used as if it were holy water to expel these evil flu demons. This is also the time of year a lot of antibiotics are prescribed and lots of over-the-counter cold and flu medicines are sold. These antibiotics can devastate your healthy gut bacteria, which can cause all sorts of health problems. The over-the-counter cold medicines are very popular and readily available. While some may think this is a great thing, it has lead to the abuse and misuse of these medicines by both adults and teenagers alike. Luckily these things can all be avoided through the power of mother natures herbal plant medicines!
While there are many nutrient dense foods that fall under the "superfood" category, there are some that seem even more super than the rest. One of these powerful plant foods is the coconut! This is one of the most versatile superfoods because it can be used and consumed in so many ways. Young green coconuts are harvested and drained for there "coconut water" which turns into "coconut milk" in the mature nuts. Both of these liquids pack all kinds of nutrients and health benefits on there own. On the inside of the coconut shell in mature nuts is the "flesh" of the coconut. This can be harvest to eat or processed into oils and nut milk. Even the shell of this powerful superfood provides us with some charcoal and coir from the fibrous husk! I'll break down all these aspects of the coconut and benefits that go along with them, which will have you going nuts over these coconuts!
