I’m so glad I’m making this article as I’m very passionate about this subject. Honestly it wasn’t too long ago when I decided to start drinking more coconut milk. I started realizing all its beneficial goodies and at first I didn’t believe it was true but after a few weeks I realized that it’s completely true! Coconut milk is definitely beneficial and I’m here to tell you why!
Improves Heart Health
“Coconuts are one of the best sources of lauric acid — 50 percent of the fat in coconuts is lauric acid, which has antibacterial and antiviral activities. According to many studies, lauric acid is a protective type of fatty acid linked with improved cholesterol levels and heart health”. (Source: draxe.com).
This is something that I definitely noticed a huge improvement after my doctor’s visit. A few months ago I went to the doctor and he realized I had high cholesterol. He advised me to cut down on all the junk I was constantly eating. During this time was when I started drinking coconut milk on a regular basis thanks to the combination of eating healthier + coconut milk my cholesterol is now in a normal state. Thanks to this, my heart is free from danger!
Builds Muscle and Helps Lose Fat
I honestly thought that I was hallucinating when I realized my favorite pants were beginning to become a bit loose. I wasn’t sure why until I realized that coconut milk actually aids in losing fat. Of course, in order to truly benefit from this my healthier lifestyle also created a positive impact. So, if you wish to lose weight drink some coconut milk, exercise, and eat healthier!
Provides Electrolytes and Prevents Fatigue
Perfect for when you are working out! Also, if you have any fatigue or if you suffer from it, coconut milk is your savior. My friend, who was constantly suffering from fatigue, was advised by her doctor to drink more coconut milk which will help her a lot. Since she was so desperate she bought enough to give it to everyone in the US continent. After a few days she saw an incredibly huge difference. She no longer suffered from fatigue and you could definitely tell she was a lot happier.
Improves Digestion and Relieves Constipation
A well-hydrated digestive tract is important for preventing or treating constipation. Coconut milk nourishes the digestive lining due to its electrolytes and healthy fats. This improves overall gut health and preventing conditions like IBS.
