Are Coconuts bad for you?
Coconuts do have high levels of saturated fat which increase your bad cholesterol, LDL, but at the same time increase your good cholesterol, HDL. They are also packed with so many beneficial properties such as having amino acids, being antibacterial, having antioxidants and containing vitamins E, K, C, and B.
What are some Coconut Oil benefits for your skin?
Coconut oil is made through a process called Cold-pressing or expeller-pressing where dried coconut meat is pressed down, and fats are extracted out. According to The Beauty Geek’s Guide To Skin Care Cold-pressed oil has higher levels of antioxidants and antibacterial properties. This helps to increase elasticity, prevents breakouts, and nourish the skin through its essential fatty acids.
Is it okay to drink Coconut Milk?
Coconut milk is a combination of the coconut meat and water blended up. It contains vitamins E, K, B Complex and C, amino acids, minerals, and essential fatty acids according to The Beauty Geek’s Guide To Skin Care. The great things about coconut milk are that it helps to fight the appearance of wrinkles, nourishes skin for deep hydration, and combats bacteria. It’s best to substitute coconut milk in drinks in moderation and not drink straight out of glass due to the high levels of saturated fats.
What are the benefits of Coconut Water?
Coconut water has fewer nutrients than coconut milk as it lacks the coconut meat. It does contain Lauric Acid, which is an antimicrobial that can fight frizzy hair, acne, and athletes’ foot. Coconut water also contains antioxidants that support heart health and may reduce blood pressure.
How to use Coconut Oil into your daily routine?
Coconut oil is great to add to hair, face and body masks. Just take a Tbs at a time and apply where desired. The oils will help to hydrate your skin or hair and protect it from free radicals. The antioxidants fight free radicals in your skin while the nourishing essential fatty acids make for more lush and lively looking hair. Using coconut oil in a scrub will provide the same benefits as in a mask while still giving that powerful hydration effect.
