The Amazing Health Benefits Of Coconut Milk
Coconut is a unique flavor and not everyone likes it, but it is becoming increasingly popular because of all of the great health benefits it has from the coconut itself, coconut milk, coconut water and coconut oil. Coconut milk is a very healthy alternative to other products and especially for those who are intolerant to traditional cow dairy. It is rich in healthy saturated fat and many other wonderful nutrients.
Coconut milk is rich in vitamins C, E, B1, B3, B5 and B6 as well as iron, selenium, calcium, iron, magnesium and phosphorus. It’s a great option for those who are allergic to traditional cow’s milk or who don’t care for almond milk.It is also a rich source of phosphorus. It contains selenium, an antioxidant, which relieves arthritis and is a rich source of magnesium, which helps to calm the nerves and maintain normal blood pressure. It is a great source of fiber, which makes you feel fuller for a longer time and if taken in moderation, can help to control or contribute to weight loss.
Even though coconut milk contains saturated fat, it reduces cholesterol levels and contains lauric acid which boosts HDL, which is your good cholesterol.
Like coconut oil, coconut milk is great for your hair in many ways by nourishing your hair giving natural moisture from roots to ends. It boosts the hair follicles and stimulates hair growth, restoring dry, damaged, weakened and brittle hair as well as split ends, and as a bonus it works as a natural hair detangler.
I love to drink it but there are many other uses for it. Enjoy it in a protein smoothie, with cereal or for your hair!
