Coconut health benefits promote speeding up metabolism which greatly

The traditional fats of our forefathers and traditional societies have been rich in saturated fats such as animal and natural tropical oils.

This type of fatty acid is not normally stored in your body as fat, but instead is used immediately for energy.
These fatty acids or MCTs do not circulate in your bloodstream like other fats.

This medium chain fatty acid is similar to mother's milk and they have similar health benefits.
Lauric acid is converted into Monolaurin which possesses antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal properties.
New born babies depend on the Monolaurin for their immune system development and their capacity to withstand infections.
Lauric acid enhances the ability of your pancreas to secrete
insulin and lauric acid also activates the thyroid which helps with your
