So many great things come from the organic coconut; flesh, oil, water and milk. Great nutritional benefits are present in abundance too.

Coconut milk, is made by grating the endosperm and mixing it with warm water. The resulting thick, white liquid is used in much Asian cooking, for example, in curries.

Of course you can eat, drink, cook or bake with all the coconut has to offer but you can also use it topically. Have a peep at the blog article we wrote on coconut oil a while back to check out some of the wonderful uses and benefits in further detail.
We could be here all day and night talking about the wonders of the organic coconut so we are just going to list off a few here. They are great for assisting proper digestion, fighting fungus as well as viruses and bacteria, regulation glucose levels as part of a balanced diet, warding off wrinkles on the skin, benefiting thyroid function and managing cholesterol.
This is barely even half of the story. Someday we should write a book on the organic coconut!
