Recipe: Coconut and Watermelon, Absolutely!

If you are looking for the perfect way to rehydrate on a hot day or after intense exercise try this simple watermelon and coconut water blend.

Making a smoothie or fruit blend does not have to be complicated or require a large number of ingredients.  I especially understand this for those who are busy and on-the-go. 

Individually, both ingredients rehydrate the body well but as a combo they make for a powerful re-hydrating treat of electrolytes and simple sugars.

We were wowed when we tasted this blend created by Madelynn, one of our Online Nutritionists in our Customer Relations team. The watermelon and coconut complemented each other wonderfully, resulting in a refreshing delight, a bit like a cool breeze on a long hot summer’s day…colorful, pretty and perfect.

Coconut & Watermelon + Zupafood for Skin.

Coconut Water:

Skin hydration is very important. Dehydration leaves the skin lifeless. Coconut water hydrates dull and dry skin, bringing smoothness to the face. Coconut water is full of naturally occurring potassium, a nutrient that many Americans are deficient in.


Rich in electrolytes and water content, watermelons are nature’s gift to beat thirst!  Watermelons are very low in calories and fats yet very rich source of numerous health promoting phyto-nutrients and anti-oxidants that are essential for optimum health.  Watermelon is an excellent source of the carotenoid lycopene, Studies suggest that lycopene may offer some protection to skin from harmful UV rays.

Fishy smell means pure and healthy to me.

I was wondering why your premium fish oil tablets seem so much more fishy tasteing than in the past. To the point that I stoped using them.

William S November 11 2014

Hi all

I can confirm that we have not made any changes to any of our fish oil products.  

A small percentage of customers sometimes report fish even if they have been taking this supplement for some time.  A number of customers have found a significant reduction in the fishy taste when they tried the following:

Taking your Omega 3 Fish oil with a meal.

Taking Omega 3 Fish gels with a big glass of water.

Storing the Omega 3 Fish oil bottles in the fridge

Taking Omega 3 Fish oil at night when the stomach acid is settled. 

After taking Omega 3 Fish Oil wait for  20 to 30 minutes before having a hot drink. If taking Omega 3 Fish Oil with our products, take the fish oil capsules first.   Repeating or fishy tasting can also be brought on by a digestion condition or by eating acidic foods such as pickles, coffee, tomatoes, alcohol etc. 

I hope this information is helpful to you all.

Kind regards

Customer Relations

I agree. I have tried these on a couple of occasions and could not take them because of the fishy taste. I have been using your products for a number of years and recently ordered the version with ubiquinol – same problem. I have tried taking them last thing at night but I just waken up through the night with the fishy taste. Regretfully, I have given up on these.

We take ours just as we are going to bed, no taste then! Can’t take them any other time, too fishy!
