Organic coconut cream contains lauric acid a healthy saturated fat found in the meat of mature coconuts.
Just like with coconut oil, coconut cream helps you to create a faster metabolism.
Coconut cream's lauric acid creates a faster metabolism because these fatty acids don't get store, they are used for energy much like a carbohydrate.
Unlike carbs, lauric acid will not create a spike in your blood sugar level.
What is Coconut Cream?
Raw coconut cream is kind of similar to coconut milk. However, coconut cream contains less water and has a much thicker paste-like consistency.
This rich and thick tropical cream has a light sweet taste.
At one point in my life, I was involved in a raw coconut cream business and had a great experience with this nutrient dense food.
Just to be clear, raw coconut cream is far superior to the coconut cream most of you will consume from the grocery stores these days.
Nutrient dense coconut cream can be made by juicing the meat of a freshly opened mature coconut in an appropriate juicer that can remove the fiber.
Raw coconut cream has a high fat content just like coconut oil, but it contains more nutrients than coconut oil.
And it contains a lot of fatty acids called lauric acid which are so important to your
immune system and for a faster metabolism.
The Best Coconut Cream Comes with Lots of Lauric Acid
The best coconut cream will come from organic raw mature coconut meat. This mature meat comes with healthy saturated fats, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and lots of lauric acid.
Lauric acid is one of the most important coconut health benefits! And it's the second best source of lauric acid.
Did you know that mother's milk is probably the best source of lauric acid?
Mother's milk is a powerful source of lauric acid and as well all know nursing gives important health benefits to growing babies.
Lauric acid enhances the ability of their pancreas to secrete
insulin. Lauric acid also activates the thyroid which helps with metabolism.
Lauric acid gets converted into monolaurin in your body which has antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal properties.
