The Magical Coconut

Coconut, once frowned upon due to it's saturated fat content, is actually a tremendous health food.

Whether you're looking to lose weight, stay healthy, or improve the condition of your skin and hair, coconut can do wonders for you.

The fat content in coconut is the kind that is easily digestible in your body as fuel--meaning that it is unlikely to be stored as fat. In addition, that fat content will help keep your blood sugars stable.

Coconut is great for the metabolism, but it also has anti-microbial and anti-viral properties.

Finally, it helps keep hair, skin and nails shiny and youthful.

Coconut is a beautifier inside and out, and it's mild, pleasant taste is appealing to many whether it's part of a meal or used as a snack.

Coconut as well as it's milk, cream and oil are all useful additions to a healthful diet.
