I feel everyone’s need to get back to basics and healthful natural solutions. that is why I am going to speak briefly on the benefits of coconut. We love the smell of it rather it is summertime days or in the winter when a fresh scent of coconut warms the air in the heart of winter. my grandmother used to make coconut maroons in the winter. Delicious.
Coconut its self is a fruit from a palm tree as you know. However, only the water of the coconut, not to be confused with coconut milk, is very beneficial in many health aspects and comes from the younger fruits that are only 7 to 8 months old. mature coconut comes from the ripened seed that is about 12 months old.
lets get to the coconut water. this very sweet water is very good for dehydration or extended exercise. as it is very hydrating. one fruit will only yield a half to one cup of this precious resource when your body is scorching for hydration. A good source of fibre, vitamin c and other minerals. there are only 46 calories per cup.
Coconut water is also a good anti toxicant which will help prevent the build-up of free radical cells, which may cause cancer and other diseases. coconut water may improve blood sugar control. It’s also a good source of magnesium, which may increase insulin sensitivity and reduce blood sugar levels, prevent kidney stones, powerful cholesterol-lowering properties. Coconut water may help lower blood pressure and potentially decrease the risk of blood clots forming in your arteries. So you see. this is a good time to grab up a chilled glass and get going on your healthful ways today.
I also wanted to talk just a little about Coconut oil. Another amazing property of the coconut that is a bit more of the mature plant. the white fleshy pulp within the seed is pressed and conformed into oils that can be used in high heat cooking oil. the difference between this oil and corn or soy is that in high heat it is able to keep its molecular structure whereas common oils break down and actually start composing toxins that are harmful to us and may cause health issues over long term use. So let’s just look at some of the uses of this wonder oil.
Coconut oil can be used as a sunscreen it actually has an SPF of 7, but you may have to wear extra sunscreen SPF depending on how close to the sun you are actually bathing, requiring higher SPF . Not only is it good as a sunscreen you can rub some of those extra dry patches knees, elbows and other areas of the body that just need a little bit of pampering. Coconut oil has healthful benefits that help the skin rejuvenate as it helps to produce elastins back into the skin. It is also great for cuts and scraps with quicker healing time and less scarring. Since we are on the subject of skin. coconut oil is a great insect repellent as well. you can use for yourself or even as a flea and tick repellent for your family fur babies.
Coconut oil has also reduced the trauma of Alzheimer, those who took only 2 teaspoons a day into their diet had reversed the effects of this sad illness in elders. Don’t forget it also helps balance diabetes. reduces belly fat, creates healthy hair cells making your hair look sleek and healthy, decreases appetite, and higher metabolism.
There are so many health benefits to this wonderful fruit, that is not a nut. And start making healthy choices today for a lifetime of smiles and happiness
