I would like to find out if claims about coconut water/juice is true. It has been said that among the benefits of drinking coconut water/juice helps to aid our body in fighting viruses such as the flu, herpes and even AIDS.
So as what extent does this claim remain to be true? If so, how drinking the water/juice affect my current meds in terms of drug and food interaction?

Coconut water has a good balance of electrolites but it has no effect on viruses of any kind. In my opinion, there is a "juice cure" every 6 months or so to which many people fall prey.
