CocoBiotic by Body Ecology is a naturally fermented drink with a gut friendly mix of coconut water, grains, beneficial bacteria, and prebiotic fiber. CocBiotic is very popular and I now understand why—it’s a refreshing, mild, and fizzy drink that provides a daily dose of potent bacteria, enzymes, vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients to support a good digestion.
Is it worth buying? Lots of happy costumers say: Definitely! The downside? Just a bit expensive.
It contains beneficial bacteria, fiber, enzymes, vitamins, minerals, and many other nutrients. It may work well for people with acid reflux, gas, and those who should be careful with carbonated drinks. Some claim it keeps candida at bay and supports bowel movement. Some parents say their kids love CocoBiotic.
You can use CocoBiotic to create your own drinks by mixing it with spirulina, wheat grass, or fresh vegetable juice. Many customers have used CocoBiotic for years and say it keeps they gut in better shape. Some mix it it with stevia or monk fruit and sparkling water. Others also a little lemon, lime, pomegranate juice, or black currant juice.

CocoBiotic is a mild and appealing drink! It seems to give the digestive tract a boost and has the potential to heal a problematic gut if consumed during some time. And I think it feels good to be able to enjoy a sparkling drink without worrying about any poor ingredients or bad effect. Needless to say, CocoBiotic is way superior to commercial soda.
There are many probiotic drinks on the market, some are great-tasting but they are not gut-friendly and often include loads of sugar, additives, and low-quality ingredients. CocoBiotic is definitely above the rest—it’s well-composed, low-carb, keto friendly, and great-tasting. Once you get the taste of it, it’s actually hard to stop drinking.
One bottle contains 13 servings (750 ml) is around $25. Not the cheapest drink around, but remember this is a pretty high-end drink. And buying 3-packs and 6-packs is cheaper. And it seems that this drink can keep your gut (and palate) in happy even if you don’t drink that much.
The bottle says that it supports your gut eco system. Many satisfied customers report a positive effect on the digestive system. Some drink it first thing in the morning and feel an energy boost. Others drink it together with meals to promote digestion. In both cases, many say it alleviates many different mild digestive issues.
It has a mild and fizzy taste, not very sweet or strong. Don’t expect it to taste something like soda which is mostly much sweeter, heavily carbonated, and with strong-tasting additives. CocoBiotics is much milder and may require a few tastes before enjoying it fully. This may be one reason why some add a little stevia to it.
The recommended serving is 2 oz. (59 ml) and one bottle contains 13 servings. However, there does not seem to be any upper limit on how much you can drink. The drink is low-carb so there is no risk of getting too much sugar. How much you want to drink is probably more a question of how much you can afford.
