Today is World Coconut day (2nd September) and I thought I should write something for this day. So I present to you this blog, which will discuss some of the benefits of coconut and its products.
As always; to make your reading experience fantastic, I have made some images, and those will tell you everything you need to know.
Let’s quickly have a look at the first image:
These were some benefits of coconut water. There are more, but, I included the popular ones.
Per 100 g of Coconut water contains:
- Calories-19 kcal
- Total carbohydrates- 3.9g
- Dietary fibre- 1.2 g
- sugar- 2.5 g
- Protein- 0.7 g
- Vitamin C- 2.4 mg
- Magnesium- 25 mg
- Potassium- 250 mg
However, it has some disadvantages as well:
- It is not ideal for those with allergies
- It could lower Blood pressure if consumed too much
- It could increase Blood sugar levels
- Could cause digestive problems
- Could affect kidneys
I know some of these points are contradicting the points mentioned in the image. But, please remember; Moderation is the key everywhere. Also, it is advisable to consult a Doctor before starting anything new. Also, make sure you drink fresh coconut water. There’s no such thing as “healthy” packed coconut water.
Now let’s have a look at some of the benefits of coconut oil.
I would say Coconut oil is one of the healthiest oil out there. I agree that there are other oils with tons of benefits, but I suggest If you are picking up coconut oil as your cooking oil, you need to know a few things about it. I won’t be discussing those things in this blog, but, I promise to write a blog about comparisons between various oils.
Coconut oil is also used on the skin, and you can see some of the advantages in the following image:
Coconut oil is also used as shaving cream and deodorant, but I haven’t tried it that way, so I haven’t mentioned those here.
Other than Coconut water and oil, Coconut is also eaten in a dried form called copra. In India, people make chutney (a type of paste/sauce) of copra. People also drink coconut milk to get its amazing benefits.
In the comments tell me how you like coconut. If you haven’t tried it yet, now is the time. If it’s not available there, you are welcome in India.
This blog is not over yet, so before you head on to the comment section I have to share something of high importance. Recently, in a blog, I asked you guys about your birthdays. Those who have shared their birthdates. I have saved them.
