Coconut fruit originates from tropical places like Africa, South America, the Philippines, Indo-Malaya, and Sri Lanka.
It grows on a palm tree 30m high and needs one year to be fully mature and ripened.
It is covered with a hard shell that protects the fruit when it falls on the ground. Inside the fruit, there is coconut meat and coconut water.
Dr. Sebi likes young and green coconut because they are high electric. He advises consuming coconuts that are fresh and natural.
Even if you want to make coconut milk, you can prepare it from mature coconuts, you should make it and drink it immediately.
He explains in one video interview
If you want coconut oil, you can make it naturally from copra (coconut meat). You can let the copra in the sun for 15 days, then blend it and squeeze the oil.
The other approved method is to make cold-pressed coconut oil and use it moderately only fresh without cooking.
In one class where he explained the alkaline lifestyle, he starts to describe the young age of his life.
He says that in the place where he grew up, there were big trees with coconut and his mother always gave him and his brother water from fresh green coconut fruits.
He recommends coconut water for people struggling with stomach cramps or digestive problems.
Despite Dr. Sebi’s advice on coconuts, what does science say about coconuts, especially coconut water consumption and digestive issues?
Truth is, there are evidence-based facts that minerals in coconut water help good gastrointestinal health and better absorption of nutrients.
Is coconut milk Dr. Sebi approved?
Coconut milk is a very healthy drink with white/cream-colored milk extracted from the meat of the coconut fruit.
In one of his teachings, Dr. Sebi approves of the use of coconut milk. He explains that the milk can be prepared from mature coconuts, but he emphasizes the freshness.
So, why does Dr. Sebi advise drinking fresh-made coconut milk?
Coconut milk has a naturally high content of phosphorus and calcium that help you in good alkalization and protect bone health.
If you take processed dairy milk with a low pH value, your body may not be able to absorb or use these minerals.
Calcium and phosphorus are a great combination of minerals for healthy bones. You need the right amount of both of them in order to maintain strong bones.
Fresh coconut water has this mineral and great pH value so your body can use them.
To make good coconut milk, you need to have a food processor, and it is prepared with pulp- meat, and water. You blend it and squeeze it well to get to the homogenized liquid.
You should always drink fresh-made coconut milk if you want to use the alkalinity of the product.
What type of coconut is approved?
There are two types of coconut fruit, the green one and the mature one, and the main difference is in the harvesting period.
Green coconut fruit is harvested early while the fruit is still young. Green coconut has more water content in this stage, and you can use it as a beverage – as coconut water.
Mature coconuts are harvested after a period of 12 months of growth on the palm trees. Their water content is absorbed, but they have a more significant percentage of meat and oil.
The core of the young coconut is soft, and you can quickly eat it with a spoon or add it to your favorite dessert.
Dr. Sebi approves of the young type of coconuts because they have their own unique benefits.
If you want to drink coconut water, it would be better to use green coconuts. Still, if you’re going to make coconut milk or oil, you should can use mature coconuts.
He teaches that coconut fruit and its products should be used only fresh. You should not buy coconut water and milk in cans or commercially processed ones that have had a thermal process and change in their molecular structure.
Also, you should never cook cold-pressed coconut oil because it will hurt you and cause inflammation.
Why does Dr. Sebi not approve of old coconut?
These days, using coconuts is very popular, and many people want to have them in the kitchen. Coconuts are unique to tropical countries, but people are transporting and propagating them across countries.
Knowing this, can fruit or its product be healthy enough if it is not freshly harvested?
Well, it is happening with industrialization.
Coconut is famous for its high nutritional value but only in fresh form; once it is harvested, processed, or dried, it loses most of its good value.
Dr. Sebi knew about this fact about many different products from the original coconut fruit. In his learning, he never approved “mature” or “old” coconuts like:
- Temperature dried coconut – because it changes the molecular structure
- Fried or heated coconut oil – because it will harm your body
- Pasteurized or sterilized coconut water – it loses its alkalinity
- Heated coconut milk with additives and chemical compounds – they are toxic to the body
In conclusion, coconuts are god-made fruits with great nutritional value for the human organism.
They are high electric and alkaline. You can start fasting and drink only coconut water for detox cleanse and energy.
But always be careful with the commercial products that claim connection with truly fresh young coconuts.
