Coconut Milk/Coconut Oil
Coconut milk is derived from meat and liquid of the coconut plant, while coconut oil is derived solely from the meat of matured coconuts. Coconut milk and oil are high in medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) saturated fat, which is identical to the fats found in human breast milk. Unlike other fats, MCT is already in an easily digestible form that your body immediately uses as energy. Coconut milk and oil also contain lauric acid, antimicrobial lipids and capric acid, which have antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties. They have been shown to build strong bones, maintain healthy blood sugar levels and support weight loss.
