Boosts immune system
Coconut contains Lauric acid which helps boost the immunity system. Lauric acid can finish many cancer cells and has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. Lauric acid also comprises anti-inflammatory properties. For a healthy immune system, prioritise Coconut tea.
Helps in Weight loss
Coconut milk comprises medium-chain triglycerides used in treating various food absorption disorders like diarrhoea, steatorrhea (fat indigestion), celiac disease, Liver disease etc.
MCTs also stimulate energy via a heat production process called Thermogenesis, which can reduce body weight and waist size. Besides these benefits, MCTs also boost insulin sensitivity levels. Insulin is a hormone that helps regulate blood sugar levels. It helps boost weight loss.
A must for a good heart
According to some studies, coconut tea boosts “good cholesterol" or high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL). It is important to note that HDL cholesterol protects the heart. HDL cholesterol also removes low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol from the blood.
LDL cholesterol is carried to the liver by HDL cholesterol. The liver breaks down LDL and eventually eliminates it from the body. Despite this benefit, some don’t consider it healthy as it has a lot of fat content. Some also say that the studies were quite short and therefore it was difficult to ascertain whether coconut tea is good for the heart or not.
