beautifood bite | coconut
A hydrating and nutrient dense fruit, drink the water and eat the meat for a year round tropical touch to your diet.
Water: Calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, electrolytes
Meat: Phosphorus, potassium, manganese Omega-6 fatty acids, lauric acid – antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory.
Cytokynins regulate the cell growth, which minimises the aging of skin cells, balances PH levels and keeps the connective tissues strong and hydrated. A high fibre and manganese content of the meat assists in digestion and absorption of other important nutrients. Natural electrolytes, potassium and sodium in the water help to regulate internal fluids to replenish and rehydrate the body while promoting healthy thyroid function and increasing metabolism. ! Lauric acid (fatty acids) have excellent antimicrobial properties to fight infection & improve digestion.
The nutrients of both the meat and water help rejuvenate the skin, help prevent wrinkles and age spots and treat dry and itchy skin. Make a fab cleanser to remove make up. For some it clears acne for others it blocks pores (comedongenic)
Add dried coconut for a tropical touch to your porridge, salad or baking. Use the water in a smoothie or juice for a hydrating mixer or simply crack open, eat, drink and enjoy!
Coconut oil has these amazing benefits too. Cook with it, use it as a moisturiser for skin and hair, or just have a daily tablespoon. Always test your skin first – especially your face.
