Coconut milk is making a big come back for its health benefits

  • Organic coconut milk is making a come back and its health benefits  are being valued once again.
  • The milk is the liquid that comes from the grated meat of a coconut.
  • Coconut milk is very popular in Southeast Asia, especially in Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, and the Philippines.
  • It is packed with vitamins C, E, B1, B3, B5, and B6 as well as iron, selenium, sodium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus. Coconut milk is a great alternative for people who are lactose intolerant and cannot have dairy.
  • Here are some of the health benefits of organic coconut milk:
  • Appetite control:
  • Studies from the Coconut Research Center show that including healthy fats can actually help with weight loss. Healthy fats like those in this milk help the body feel full and satisfy the receptors in the brain, causing people to eat less.
  • Hair & skin:
  • Coconut milk and organic coconut oil are often applied to the hair to provide it with nutrients to grow and thrive. It also can help moisturize the skin and treats wounds and infections.
  • Heart health:
  • It contains medium-chain fatty acids. These saturated fats may be good for fighting heart disease. According to a Coconut Research Center study, the medium-chain fatty acids in coconut milk help kill the bacteria that forms plaque in the arteries. This is something that antibiotics cannot do on its own.
  • Immune booster:
  • This milk has good levels of lauric acid, which is used by the body to fight viruses like HIV, herpes, and the flu. Studies  show that coconut milk may even help fight pneumonia.

  2. Hi Gambit,
    No need to do so. Regular organic coconut milk will do. Thanks for visiting.
