Health Benefits of Coconut

I love coconut!!! I put it in everything, from Chia Pudding for breakfast to Thia Green Soup for dinner.  The best part about coconut is that it is packed with health benefits.

  • Coconut contains medium-chain triglycerides (MTC) which help with weight loss and energy levels
  • It is really high in fibre which helps with healthy poops, stabilises blood sugar and helps you stay full
  • The healthy fats found in coconut are great for boosting the immune system because they have antibacterial and antiviral properties
  • High in manganese which is great for bone health
