Let’s Talk About Coconut
Coconut has tremendous health benefits.
Coconut is the fruit of the coconut palm. It can be eaten as food or used as medicine.
Oh Yes, Medicine! Coconut is taken by mouth for bladder stones, diabetes, high cholesterol, and weight loss.
Whether you are eating the ‘meat’ or sipping on the wondrous and tasty coconut water or you are consuming it as oil either in food or skin treatment, the benefits of the tropical coconut is huge.
Coconut oil is even thought to possess healing properties above any other dietary oils available.
Let’s take a quick look at a few!

- Super Body Guard.
Eating coconuts are very healthy for one’s immunity. They are antiviral, antifungal, antibacterial, and anti-parasitic, (sounds like superman). This means they kill harmful bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites.
If you consume coconut in any of its various forms – raw coconut, coconut butter, coconut milk, coconut oil, coconut water etc – it can help deal a lot of resilient illnesses like influenza, lice, throat infections, gonorrhea, urinary tract infections, bronchitis, tapeworms, as well as others caused by microbes.
Coconuts contain a high amount of a saturated fat called medium chain triglycerides. These fats work differently than other types of saturated fat in the body. They might increase fat burning and reduce fat storage.
