In India, the coconut is celebrated as a symbol of prosperity and health.
Coconuts, in different forms, are believed to be anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-parasitic. During World War 2, coconut water is said to have been used to treat dehydration due to the shortage of medical supplies.
