"Many people are turned off by the high fat and high calorie content of coconut products. Coconut products are highly beneficial to the body!
- The fat in coconut is made up of MCT oils (medium chain triglycerides) which are different from the fat we store on our body.
- This fat is metabolized differently than most dietary fats. It is highly utilizable for body energy functions.
- It can actually boost your metabolism and help you to lose weight!
- Although coconut is a saturated fat - it is a different form than animal fat and always free of cholesterol.
- Coconut fats are great for cooking because they don't oxidize with heat as do many liquid vegetable oils.
- Coconut milks are a great alternative to dairy! Great quality fats with no lactose or cholesterol!"
