Coconut milk is a relatively new health food, but it certainly is getting it's fair share of attention. Many of us may picture coconut as a delicious desert type food. Used in recipes to make cookies, creamy pies, or as flavoring for other yummy treats, few people are aware of the fact that coconuts generally, and coconut milk in particular, offer exciting benefits to the human body.
Experts condemned the use of coconut milk for a very long time due to its high-fat content, but recent studies have uncovered valuable health benefits. Although high in saturated fat and calories, coconut milk is similar to human milk in key ways and contains important nutrients and fiber.
Cosmetic experts report improved skin condition from topical use. Outside the body, coconut milk can provide numerous healthy uses to make your skin clean and moist. Experiments have suggested that lauric acid could be a useful component in a treatment for acne, due to its antibacterial properties.
Coconut milk is found inside of coconuts. You can make your own coconut milk at home. But for convenience, you can buy it in prepared form in a can or bottle at health food stores or Asian grocery supply shops. Be sure to refrigerate a container that has been opened, as it does spoil. Some stores sell Coconut Cream Concentrate or powder so you can mix it yourself to make several fresh servings over a period of time.
Which ever way you decide to include it into your health routine, its an all natural body booster!
