What are the advantages of coconut water and other products derived from coconut? Not so long ago, if you did not live in the tropics, probably rarely thought of coconut. Maybe you had a coconut flavored drink every so often (most likely, one of which contains alcohol!) – but never thought the coconut to be one of the healthiest foods on the planet. Now, however, it seems that every other product that is sold in natural foods store has coconut in it!
Yes, we hear about the benefits of coconut water, coconut milk and coconut oil all the time. Coconut oil is not only for cooking, but it is used in all kinds of products for skin care.
Coconut water is now becoming a popular alternative of sports drink. Coconut milk, meanwhile, has started to become a leading milk substitute.
Coconut oil is demonized in the past, because it contains unsaturated fats. In fact, coconut oil is one of the richest sources of saturated fat known to man, with almost 90% fatty acids therein are saturated.
Coconut is used by the body for energy production in fact, rather than storing it as body fat. It supports enhanced endurance during physical and sports activities. In addition, it promotes a healthy thyroid function and helps alleviate the symptoms of chronic fatigue.
