Global Coconut Farmers Producer company is bringing the divine, natural, nutritious, health drink called ‘thenneera’ which is directly tapped from coconut trees under controlled atmosphere and clean processing without adding any chemicals and preservatives to the people in India and abroad.

A recent study conducted by the Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru, shows that thenneera can help cure liver diseases. The study proves that Thenneera is particularly useful in treating liver diseases caused by consumption of alcohol. The magical property of thenneera to remove “acetaldehyde” (the toxic metabolic product of ethanol causing liver damage) is proven in the study. It has also been shown to boost the activity of a normally functioning liver.

Thenneera is safe and perhaps the best health drink for persons suffering from diabetes. This is because of its low glycemic index (GI). (The GI is a measure of how quickly and how high a particular food item raises the blood sugar level by releasing glucose into the blood stream.) The use of Thenneera and its by-products give the same sweetness without causing spikes in blood sugar level compared to the traditional sweetening agents. The amazingly low GI of Thenneera and its various by-products are indirectly helpful in preventing many lifestyle diseases like obesity, cardiovascular diseases and even cancers of the breast, colon, pancreas and prostate.

Thenneera has been recommended for use in medical conditions like asthma, tuberculosis, and urinary tract infections. Thenneera is rich in minerals like potassium, magnesium, zinc and iron. It can be given as a natural supplement of these minerals in conditions like iron deficiency anaemias and zinc deficiency. Another advantage of Thenneera is that, it is a rich source of Vitamin B complex, Vitamin A and Vitamin C (ascorbic acid). The anti-oxidant property of these vitamins and the neutral pH makes Thenneera a natural detoxifying health drink. Apart from the minerals and vitamins, the sweet drink is rich in glutamic acid (amino acid) which is necessary for protein synthesis.
