Does anyone here drink coconut water? It has a lot of healing qualities to it and I wondered if it seemed to help with MS at all. I started to drink it as my husband has heard that it is good for leg cramps. I googled it and found that it is very good for the body. It helps strengthen the immune system and helps to reduce viral infections among its many awesome qualities. In fact, it also can be used in place of plasma as it is exactly the same as our plasma in our bodies. People have had transfusions using coconut water.

" I use to drink coconut water when I lived Dallas Tx,now I have not or know if it help with my MS.I did or have not seen or felt any changes. Never thought to ask my Nero or PCP about coconut water. Once I get settled in Tucson and find a Nero and coconut water I will ask! "

" I love it! I cook with coconut milk instead of dairy milk because the high fat content in the dairy was worsening my symptoms. Coconut, almond, olives--all good alternative healthy fat sources for an MS diet ! :) "

" I don't use coconut water but I do take the oil as a supplement.

I take 1 tablespoon twice a day. Funny thing is, I started on it as a way to lean down and lose some body fat, but I discovered by happy accident that it also helps immensely with my rheumatoid arthritis!

I can't say one way or the other if it helping with my MS, but adding healthy lipids to ones diet certainly can't hurt! "

" I know that Safeway/Albertson's carries it sometimes in the water area. I have seen it on the very bottom shelves. Usually I find it at health food stores. There are several flavors. Plain coconut water is very strong and has an almond taste to it. If you can't find it bottled, try opening a coconut and using that water that is inside. You only need a couple of tablespoons per day! "
