It's pretty rare to find a healthy product that you can use to cook, bake, hydrate and apply. Packed with nutrients that benefit your insides and your outs, Coconuts have researchers and health magazines buzzing about its flavor and versatility.
Here are just a few products and reasons why this is one tropical fruit worth trying!
1. Coconut Water - Packed with electrolytes (mainly potassium & sodium), coconut water works as a replenishing beverage that restores water lost through sweat and allows the body a speedy recovery after strenuous exercise. Next time you're at Daphne's ask for ZICO Coconut water!
2. Coconut Milk - What was once primarily found canned and used in Piña Coladas is now a staple for Dairy free and Gluten free consumers. Not only does the dairy alternative provide a strong dose of calcium and vitamin D, it also contains magnesium which is equally important in promoting healthy bones.
3. Coconut Oil - Although the term "fats" usually hinders the diet-conscious consumer; Coconut Oil is composed predominately of medium-chain fatty acids (MCFA) which is a tough one to come by. The healthy fat helps protect against heart disease, lowers the risk of atherosclerosis and does not negatively effect cholesterol levels. The oil is topical too! Coconut Oil has been known as a great treatment for nourishing damaged hair and can even be used on the skin to treat various skin problems and delay wrinkles.
4. Coconut Flour - The main bonus here is of course a healthy and Gluten free alternative to wheat flour. Made from the meat of Coconut, the flour form of this fruit contains almost double the amount of fiber found in wheat bran and provides just as much protein as wheat flour.
