Bring in the New Year with this lightly fizzy, refreshing Champagne Mocktail. The coconut water and lime juice not only gives this drink great flavour, but also offers critical hydration, glucose and minerals. Add the pomegranate seeds for a festive touch or skip them altogether.
Coconut water has the ability to hydrate the body on a deep, cellular level making it an essential beverage for athletes and those that live a busy, active life. It also has been shown to help balance pH levels, boost the immune system, and support kidneys in filtering toxins and reducing the risk of kidney stones. Coconut water is also highly beneficial for cardiovascular health as it can help to reduce blood pressure and increase healthy circulation. It is also a vitally important drink for those who are suffering with a chronic illness such as migraines, sinusitis, COPD, fibromyalgia, asthma, PCOS, cardiomyopathy, crohn's disease, epilepsy, hypertension, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, hypothyroidism, arthritis, lupus, and chronic fatigue syndrome.
The antioxidant flavonoids in limes are another ally in fighting disease. And when you’re dealing with a cold, flu, bronchitis, or pneumonia, lemon is one of the most effective mucus expellers you can find. Limes are also amazing cleansers of the liver, kidneys, spleen, thyroid, and gallbladder. They purge the many toxic substances we collect from exposure to plastics, synthetic chemicals, radiation, and poor food choices.
