Consumption of coconuts in pregnancy is considered to be helpful and is safe. Coconuts
are foods with great nutritional benefits and all parts of the fruit including its
flesh, water and milk are recommended during pregnancy. They are a rich source of
electrolytes and potassium – which are especially important during pregnancy. They’re
also packed with healthy goodness that includes magnesium, calcium, and a range
of vitamins. As a source of lauric acid, coconuts have great antiviral and antibacterial
properties and support proper immune functions to help protect your and your baby’s
health in pregnancy.
