Coconut Health Benefits

Coconut health benefits promote speeding up your metabolism which greatly aids with weight loss and provides many other benefits. 

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

People in tropical areas who consume large amounts of coconuts get a lot of coconut health benefits and are rarely overweight. 

Traditional people do not suffer from many of the diseases that plague people in the Western or Civilized World.

Remember the Western or Civilized World now relies on a wide array of vegetable oils to cook their food.

And this type of oil is a relatively new food item that was "introduced" into our diets "in vast amounts" only a few decades ago.

You know when all of the heart disease problems seemed to appear. 

Coincidence?  I don't think so!

There is no such thing as a coincidence, there is always a reason why disease or health problems happen.

Coconut's Fat Used for Energy
and for Building Up the Immune System

Coconuts contain an abundance of medium chain triglycerides or MCTs which are known for speeding up metabolism.

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.

MCTs are sent directly to your liver where they are quickly converted into energy which also leads to speeding up your metabolism!

Lauric acid is one of the most important coconut health benefits and abundant fatty acids found in coconuts. 

Lauric acid plays a role in building up your immune system.

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 metabolism.
