The medium-chain fatty acids in coconut milk and coconut oil are highly prized for their health benefits. According to a 2018 review published in PLoS One, these fats may improve exercise performance and aid in weight loss by increasing fat oxidation and metabolism. MCTs can help you burn more calories throughout the day and balance the hormones that regulate appetite. They also prevent fat accumulation, making it easier to keep the weight off.
Boosts Your Immune System
One of the most remarkable benefits of coconut milk lies in its ability to boost immune function. Lauric acid, a medium chain saturated fatty acid in the coconut fruit, exhibits antimicrobial and anticancer properties. A 2017 study published in the journal Frontiers in Microbiology indicates that lauric acid inhibits the growth of Clostridium difficile, a drug-resistant bacterium.
If you’re getting sick often, add coconut milk to your diet. It might be exactly what you need to boost your natural defenses and keep your immune system strong. Drink this beverage anytime throughout the day, or add it to baked goods, smoothies, coconut milkshakes and homemade desserts.
Keeps Your Brain Sharp
Struggling with brain fog and poor mental focus? Want to boost your productivity and get more done in less time? Coconut milk might be the answer to your needs.
The MCTs in this healthful beverage fuel your brain and may improve cognition, according to a 2014 review published in the journal Frontiers in Neuroscience, its fatty acids increase the production of ketone bodies, which serve as an energy source for the brain. They may boost memory and mental performance, restore brain function and slow cognitive decline.
Promotes Cardiovascular Health
Coconut milk provides mostly saturated fat but surprisingly, it doesn’t affect blood lipids or heart health. A 2018 clinical trial published in The BMJ assessed the effects of olive oil, coconut oil and butter on blood cholesterol, body weight, fat distribution and cardiovascular risk factors.
A balanced diet that includes coconut milk might actually keep your heart healthy and protect against cardiovascular problems. Lauric acid, as one of its key nutrients, has been found to reduce oxidative stress and blood pressure in hypertensive rats. This fatty acid also boasts antioxidant properties and aids in weight loss, which further enhances its cardioprotective effects.
Fights Oxidative Stress
One cup of coconut milk boasts up to about 87 percent of the daily recommended intake of manganese. This mineral plays a key role in bone formation, growth and development, protein synthesis and more. As a dietary supplement, it’s often prescribed for the treatment of anemia, osteoarthritis, premenstrual syndrome and other conditions.
According to the journal Oxidative Medicine and Cellular Longevity, manganese is an essential component of MnSOD (Mn superoxide dismutase). This enzyme exhibits antioxidant properties and neutralizes oxidative stress in the mitochondria, protecting against metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance and other metabolic disorders. Manganese may also lower your risk of diabetes and prevent its complications.
Fuels Your Workouts
Both coconut milk and coconut water are popular in the fitness community. These beverages provide large doses of potassium, magnesium, calcium, sodium and other electrolytes that support athletic performance and post-workout recovery. In fact, coconut water is often referred to as nature’s Gatorade.
As the National Academy of Sports Medicine notes, electrolytes increase hydration levels in the body and fuel exercise performance. Athletes and gym goers lose these minerals through sweat, so they need them in larger amounts to perform optimally.
Potassium, one of the most abundant electrolytes in coconut milk, supports nerve and muscle function, regulates heart rate and promotes cardiovascular health. Magnesium regulates over 300 biochemical processes in your body. It plays a vital role in energy production and protein synthesis, regulates blood sugar levels, supports immune function and keeps your blood pressure stable. Calcium aids in bone growth and development.
When coconut milk is refrigerated and left to set, coconut cream will rise to the top and separate out from the milk.
