What Is Coconut Milk?

Coconut milk is the liquid naturally found in coconuts in the meat, or the thick white part inside the coconut. It is created by blending the coconut meat then straining it. As opposed to coconut water is the actual water that spews out of a fresh coconut and coconut oil that is coconut milk that has fermented and separated. It is a great alternative to those who are lactose intolerant or who choose not to drink animal dairy products. Want to know the uses and benefits of coconut milk? We got you!

What are the uses and Benefits of Coconut Milk?

1. Build Muscle

After exercise muscles need nutrients and the magnesium and potassium found in coconut milk help repair tissue to help it grow. The healthy fat content also keeps you full longer.

2. Reduces Fatigue

Coconut water and milk are both high sources of electrolytes and have important minerals to prevent dehydration. They also contain brain boosting MCT's which give healthy calories to the brain.

3. Improves Heart Health

Coconuts are an incredible source of lauric acid which is antibacterial and antiviral. Lauric acid has been found to lower LDL levels (the bad cholesterol) and increase HDL levels (good cholesterol). The minerals in coconuts also keep blood vessels flexible which lowers blood pressure.
