130 Powerful Health Benefits Of Coconut Oil, Milk & Water

Coconut Health Benefits

Coconut Health Benefits

Young coconuts contain the most health benefits compared to mature coconuts. The water in the young coconut is one of the highest sources of electrolytes.

Electrolytes are responsible for keeping the body properly hydrated so the muscles and nerves can function appropriately.

Let’s begin focusing on 4 ways to consume coconut and its benefits.

Benefits Of Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is an amazing oil that can be used on a daily basis.

It can be used for the following:

  • Recipes
  • Skin enhancement
  • Disease prevention
  • Deodorant
  • Toothpaste
  • Weight loss
  • Health ailments

Benefits Of Coconut Water

The water from inside the coconut, incredibly nourishing, is a clear liquid that is tapped from young green coconuts.

It has fewer calories, less sodium, and more potassium, magnesium and antioxidants. You can drink the fresh water right from the coconut.

There is usually more water in a young coconut, since the water is replaced by the white coconut flesh as it matures.

Therefore, for drinking purposes, coconuts are harvested off the trees when they are still young and green.

Later, the outer green husk is removed and the coconuts are wrapped in plastic to keep the moisture.

For best results, the water from fresh coconut should be consumed shortly after being exposed to air. Due to the possible loss of important nutrients.

A single coconut usually provides eleven ounce serving of water. It is also low in calories and fat, but rich in vitamins, minerals and other nutrients.

Key nutrients in coconut water include lauric acid, chloride, and iron.

As well as important electrolytes such as potassium, magnesium, calcium, sodium, and phosphorous.

Health Benefit Of Coconut Meat

Coconut meat provides an abundance of protein, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, iron and fiber.

White jelly from coconuts is found under several outer layers of the coconut shell that protect it and keep it sterile.

The meat can come from both young and mature coconuts. Coconut meat is high in fiber, with one cup containing 7.2 g.

Coconut Milk Benefits

Coconut milk is the liquid that comes from the grated meat of a brown coconut.

It is an excellent substitute for cow’s milk. Easy to digest and it should not be confused with coconut water.

The colour and rich taste of coconut milk can be attributed to the high coconut oil content.

Make homemade coconut milk with shredded coconut and water for a simple, inexpensive and healthy drink. Or buy organic coconut milk.

A quarter cup of coconut milk has:

  • 138 calories
  • 1.5 grams protein
  • 2 grams sugar
  • 14 grams fat
  • .55 milligrams manganese
  • .15 milligrams copper
  • 60 milligrams phosphorus
  • 22 milligrams magnesium
  • 3.9 milligrams iron
  • 157 milligrams potassium

Let’s now take a look at the combined health benefits.
