Interesting Facts about Coconut
"Coconut oil may actually be beneficial. Coconut oil stimulates the thyroid, which in turn can help lower cholesterol and boost metabolism. As a result of the thyroid stimulation, coconut oil can also help one lose weight. One symptom of thyroid issues is depression. So fixing the thyroid problem may also help alleviate depression symptoms. Losing weight can relieve some depression symptoms.
You can of course, use coconut oil but, I've never tried it, personally. The smaller the coconut, the sweeter the juice and softer coconut meat. I love drinking the coconut milk from smaller coconuts because it tastes a lot sweeter. I like the mature coconut meat because it's crunchier and is a bit of a snack.
I'm sure you will find what you like best! I'm not an expert. So, I can't promise you that coconuts will cure your depression/bipolar disorder and cause you to lose weight but, it's worked for me, my uncle, and some friends, too! I hope it works for you, as well.
Here are some yummy recipes you can try at home.
Just a note, when eating/drinking coconut/juice eat something right after. If you don't, your tummy will hurt. :c Also, never ever have it before bed or you'll wake up with the worst tummy ache, ever. Trust me, I know from experience!
