Jesus replied to them, I am the Bread of Life. The one who comes to Me will never be hungry, and the one who believes in Me [as Savior] will never be thirsty [for that one will be sustained spiritually]. John 6:35
Health Benefits of Coconut
Coconut is often revered as an all-encompassing health and beauty cure. It helps in so many different ways, from your hair and skin, to helping with digestion, weight loss, but the oil can cause heart disease which will also be discussed at the end . Here are some of the top health benefits of coconut to be aware of.
It Helps Improve Your Digestion
If you have been struggling with a lot of digestive issues, then you should definitely consider adding in more coconut to your diet. Most forms of coconut are going to help you with your digestive problems, including coconut water, coconut milk, but NOT coconut oil which I will discuss why at the end. Coconut has anti-inflammatory properties that help with bowel disorders, digestive disorders, and help your body to absorb more nutrients. It can also help you to absorb more dietary fiber, which is needed when you have digestive issues.
Your Hair and Skin Will Thank You
Coconut oil is great for your outer health. You will notice that your hair, skin, and nails are all improved when you start introducing more coconut into your diet. Proper hydration is key to having healthy hair and skin, so by drinking more coconut water, you are getting the hydration you need and also helping with the benefits of the coconut itself. This is highly recommended on a daily basis.
You Can Lose Weight
With coconut water and milk, you will notice that the more of it you have, the less cravings you get. You can also replace regular sugar with coconut palm sugar which is much better for you.
BEWARE OF THE OIL! It Increases Your Risk of Heart Disease
A health concern that you should keep in mind is that coconut oil can cause you to increase your risk for heart disease. While coconut oil does have a good amount of saturated fat, it actually does more harm to your body even if you are only having a small amount of oil at a time, because it is oxidized. This is going to also increase your blood pressure levels, all of which increases the risk of heart disease.
