You are right coconut milk is known to heal ailments like ulcers and sore throat and reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, cancer, osteoporosis, diabetes, digestive problems, skin cancer and blemishes. It is also beneficial for skin. It acts as a good moisturiser and conditioner for dry hair. It is often used in creams to relieve skin rashes. Coconut milk contains minerals, vitamins and electrolytes.

Yes, but coconut milk is also rich in saturated fats. However, this saturated fats in coconut milk is healthier as compared to the other saturated fats because it is made up of short chain fatty acids that do not get stored as fat reserves but are utilized as energy. Also, it gets easily metabolized in the body. The saturated fat it mainly contains is lauric acid, it is also found in mother s milk and is known to have beneficial effects such as development of brain and nervous system and also bone development. It is also known to have anti carcinogenic, antibacterial and antiviral effects. So, we can fight off the winter flu s with inclusion of coconut milk in our diet. It is also known to lower cholesterol and prevent tumors besides helping in reducing weight. it is also a very good source of calcium. And nowadays it is readily available in all leading departmental stores in canned form.

Dr. Reshma, how far is this is true. They say coconut milk if consumed as it is, I mean freshly squeezed milk from the coconut is good for health but once it is cooked or heated it is bad because the milk turns into oil containing saturated fat.
