It provides Electrolytes and Prevents Fatigue. Although coconut water is a higher source of electrolytes, coconut milk also provides important minerals needed to maintain blood volume, regulate heart health, and prevent dehydration or diarrhea. This is especially important during and after a flare, in very hot weather, or even following exercise. Electrolytes help prevent exhaustion, muscle aches or cramps, and low immunity. Which are all things that can be symptoms of having Crohn's Disease.
Coconut milk also contains the types of MCTs that are easily used by your brain for energy, without even needing to be processed through your digestive tract with bile acids like some other fats. Coconut milk’s calories provide a quick and efficient source of healthy calories for the brain, which is actually primarily made up of fat and relies on a steady stream of it to function. So the fact that it is easily digested makes it a great food for us to enjoy.
A well-hydrated digestive tract is important for preventing or treating constipation. Coconut milk nourishes the digestive lining due to its electrolytes and healthy fats, improving gut health. Which again makes it a great food for us.
So let me know how you go with drinking coconut milk and tell me the benefits you experience. I like to add it to smoothies. With some fruit and a good quality protein powder you are getting a healthy and delicious drink.
