You can find coconut milk in the ethnic foods section of a local grocery store but did you know these 5 major benefits of coconut products?

1. Quick boost of energy for sports or activities.

The saturated fats in coconut water are made up of short-chain and medium-chain fatty acids, the body quickly turns them into energy instead of storing them as fat, also aiding in fat loss even though it is high in saturated fats. Next time you are getting ready for a run, or heading to the gym grab one and try it out, you won’t regret it.

2. Re-enforcements for your immune system

Half of the medium-chain fatty acids in coconut water are composed of lauric acid; this acid is anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-microbial. Who knew this tasty drink can boost the immune system!


This is a big one for people with lactose intolerance! Coconut milk is a healthy alternative to regular milk and it is also soy-free, gluten-free and nut- free. So you can enjoy WORRY FREE! Use coconut milk in any recipes where you would use regular milk or cream. (Ice cream, flan etc.)
