CLINICAL AYURVEDIC REVIEW
Feel vital and freshSweating depletes electrolytes and sugars, leaving you exhaustion and weak after a long day working under the hot sun. This elixir of fruit sugars, electrolytes and fatty acids freshens you up and adds enjoyment to your day. Pomegranate's circulatory, stimulating qualities flush toxins out of sore overworked muscles. Upon drinking, you'll feel like a cool breeze at dusk while the sun tucks itself away. Pomegranate also encourages production of red blood cells, useful in anemia and other blood deficiencies so that you feel strong and vigorous for tomorrow. Let the rich red color of pomegranate remind you of the vital blood circulating through your veins - drink it in and never forget your innate vitality.
Nourish KindnessSweet, delicious coconut water restores calm and peace. Anxious, heated emotions easily flare onhot summer afternoons. This nutritive brain tonic is known to restore your affectionate side, which is why it is a popular aphrodisiac in the tropics. Coconut water's sweetness, combined with natural oils, nourish you from deep within - a sign of coconut's natural ojas building qualities. This satisfaction seems to relieve tension down to the cellular level, helping you move with ease throughout your day.
Soothing, Cooling ReliefBy nature an ambitious organ, the liver often falls victim to intense, hot blooded emotions that boil up inside. Pomegranate's sour taste gently purges the liver of hot summer bile, so that you feel less irritable and more patient, despite the hot weather. Coconut water is a coolant, meaning it is a soothing anti-inflammatory for your whole body. Its creaminess soothes inflamed mucosal membranes in the entire digestive tract. It also cools the blood, which then passes through the liver like fresh mountain spring water, blessing all it touches like a crisp, babbling brook.
Glowing Skin TonicSkin disorders, like hot blooded emotions, start in the liver. When the liver is taxed and overheated in summer, the skin comes to rescue by helping the liver detoxify the blood. The result is ruddy, acne ridden complexion as these toxins come to the surface and irritate your skin. When this happens your skin will look inflamed and might feel hot and puffy to the touch. The liver cleansing & nourishing qualities of this drink restores strength to the liver and beauty to the skin. Meanwhile, coconut's creaminess restores your skin's suppleness. With the first taste, you'll feel relaxed in your entire skin and return to your naturally radiant state.
A Balm for Your IntestinesIn early summer, stools are loose and hot, often making you feel a burning discomfort during elimination. In late summer, stools dry out and become hardened, though equally irritating. If you are suffering from dryness or heat conditions of the GI, or even simple dehydration, this recipe offers natural and delicious relief. In the same way it makes the mouth pucker, the astringency of pomegranate firms up loose early summer stools. Smooth and lubricating coconut water then comes in to balance the threat of over-drying during those hardened, late-summer stools. Altogether, Coconut Pomegranate Elixir is a perfect tonic for Vata dryness and Pitta irritation in the intestines.
If coconut and pomegranate's cold properties suppress your appetite too much, they will make your stomach feel heavy and sluggish. If that happens, add a punch of catalyzing ginger to this recipe to liven up your insides.
