Coconut is highly nutritious and rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals. It is classified as a "functional food" because it
provides many health benefits beyond its nutritional content.
Coconut oil is rich in medium chain fatty acids, which actually protect your cardio system from plaque build-up and systemic inflammation. Coconut oil is excellent for the skin because it contains lauric acid, which fights off fungal and yeast infections. Coconut oil is suggested for ulcer sufferers, because the lauric acid fends off ulcer-aggravating H. pylori bacteria.
Coconut oil provides a stable, nutritional source of energy, stamina and endurance. It improves digestive functioning, which yields better absorption of vitamins, minerals and amino acids. It also improves the absorption of calcium and magnesium, supporting the development and maintenance of strong bones and teeth.
The Polynesians have eaten coconut as a food staple since ancient times and theirs is among the lowest rates of heart disease in the world.
