The Benefits of Coconut Milk

In addition to providing nutrients and its fresh taste, contains a beneficial fat called Lauric Acid which is a medium-chain fatty acid (MCFA) that’s easily absorbed and used by the body for energy.

The fatty acids in Coconut are primarily saturated fats which helps to lose weight. Moreover this full-fat Organic Coconut Milk contains all of its natural fatty acids, while Organic Coconut Milk Light is mixed with Coconut Water to reduce the fat content, which creates a thinner, lower-calorie milk.

As Organic Coconut Milk is completely free from dairy, lactose, soy, nuts or grains it is a good option for anyone allergic to dairy and nut or grain-based milks and it is vegan and good for plant-based eaters.

Earth’s Finest Organic Coconut Milk range provides you with many health benefits:

  1. Help improve Heart Health, by Lowering Blood Pressure and Cholesterol

Coconuts are one of the best sources of Lauric acid – 50% of the fat in Coconuts is Lauric acid, which has antibacterial and antiviral properties. According to research Lauric acid is a protective type of fatty acid which improves cholesterol levels and heart health.

In a study where 60 healthy volunteers were given Coconut Milk porridge for five days a week for eight weeks, researchers found that their low density lipoprotein (LDL) levels decreased while their ‘good’ high density lipoprotein (HDL) levels rose significantly.

They concluded that “Coconut fat in the form of Coconut milk does not cause a detrimental effect on the lipid profile in the general population; in fact it is beneficial due to the decrease in LDL and rise in HDL cholesterol.”

Alternative to above, when researching the effects of Coconut Milk, it was found through monitoring 60 healthy volunteers for 8 (eight) weeks that consuming Coconut milk porridge for 5 (five) consecutive days decreased levels of low density lipoprotein (LDL) while the ‘good’ high density lipoprotein (HDL) levels rose significantly.

Thus deducing that “Coconut fat in the form of Coconut Milk does not cause a detrimental effect on the lipid profile in the general population and in fact is beneficial due to the decrease in LDL and rise in good HDL cholesterol.”

As Organic Coconuts contain minerals important for circulation and controlling blood flow, Organic Coconut milk is useful for lowering blood pressure and keeping blood vessels flexible, elastic and free from plaque buildup. For example, magnesium may help combat stress and muscle tension while aiding in circulation and keeping muscles relaxed; this is important for preventing heart attacks.

  1. Builds Muscle and Helps Lose Fat 

Studies find that medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) fatty acids found in Organic Coconut milk increase energy expenditure and help enhance physical performance. Following exercise, muscles need plenty of nutrients including electrolytes like magnesium and potassium that are found in Organic Coconut milk to repair broken down tissue and grow it back even stronger.

As Organic Coconut Milk is high in healthy fats, it helps fill you up and prevent overeating or snacking throughout the day, which derail your efforts to improve your body composition.

  1. Provides Electrolytes and Prevents Fatigue

Although Organic Coconut Water is a higher source of electrolytes, Organic Coconut Milk also provides important minerals needed to maintain:

  • Blood volume
  • Regulate heart health
  • Helps prevent dehydrationor diarrhea.

Especially in very hot weather, following exercise or after being sick, electrolytes help prevent exhaustion, heat strokes, heart problems, muscle cramps and low immunity.

Organic Coconut milk also contains the types of MCTs that are easily used by your brain for energy, without even needing to be processed through your digestive tract with bile acids like some other fats.

Organic Coconut milk’s calories provide a quick and efficient source of healthy calories for the brain, which is actually primarily made up of fat and relies on a steady stream of it to function.

  1. Helps Lose Weight

According to a study done by the School of Dietetics and Human Nutrition at McGill University, Consumption of a diet rich in MCTs results in greater loss of fat (adipose tissue) compared with long-chain fatty acids, due to increased energy expenditure and fat oxidation observed with MCT intake. MCTs may be considered as agents that aid in the prevention of obesity or potentially stimulate weight loss.

As a food high in MCTs, Organic Coconut Milk is very filling and a burns general body fat. Fats provide the feeling of being full and satisfied and can help prevent overeating, snacking, food cravings and potentially weight gain.

Of course, portion control is important considering the calorie count of Organic Coconut Milk, but as a part of a healthy diet it provides necessary fatty acids in addition to other minerals that support weight loss and detoxification.

Organic Coconut Milk is also hydrating and helps the digestive organs, like the liver and kidneys, function properly, which helps metabolize fat and remove waste from the body.

  1. Improves Digestion and relieves Constipation

A well-hydrated digestive tract is important for preventing or treating constipation or other digestion related ailments.
