Did you know that coconut can be classified as a fruit...and a nut...and a seed?

Back in the fifth century, travelers wrote about this fruit-nut-seed after visiting India. These days, coconut palms are grown in a large number of tropical locations -- as far north as Hawaii and as far south as Madagascar.

Coconuts used to have a reputation for being high in cholesterol, clogging arteries and contributing to heart disease. Today, the coconut is being touted as a “miracle food.” While we wouldn’t go so far as saying that any food is a “miracle”, coconuts are packed with nutrients, fiber-rich, contain beneficial fats, and filled with essential vitamins and minerals.

Potential Health Benefits of Coconut Products

  • Nutrients: Fresh and dried coconut meat contains minerals such as copper, calcium, iron, manganese, magnesium, and zinc. It’s a source of B-vitamins, which include folate, riboflavin, niacin, thiamine and pyridoxine.

  • Promotes digestive health: The fiber from fresh and dried coconut meat help to prevent constipation and is a great source of food for the healthy gut bacteria that can help fight off pathogens in the gut.

  • Reduce symptoms of Type 2 diabetes: Fiber from coconuts can reduce the glycemic index of a meal which prevents a post-meal glucose spike. Some studies have even shown diets high in coconut oil can improve glucose tolerance.

  • Healthy saturated fats: Coconut contains healthy saturated fats called Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs). That means that the fatty acids in coconut are shorter than other fats. When you eat this type of fat it’s absorbed from the gut and goes to the liver. From here, instead of being turned into fat, it can be used directly for energy or turned into ketones. MCTs have potent medicinal properties.

  • Increases fat burn: MCTs can increase calorie burn by about 5% in a 24-hour period. In addition, MCTs from coconut oil can burn more calories compared to oils containing long chain triglycerides (as in olive oil).

  • Reduces harmful abdominal fat: Visceral abdominal fat in the body is especially harmful because it surrounds the organs in your body, causing inflammation, and contributing to many of the chronic Western diseases. Coconut oil can be effective in reducing visceral abdominal fat.

  • Supports immune system health: Lauric acid makes up about 50% of the MCTs found in coconuts. Lauric acid can kill pathogens like viruses, bacteria, and fungi; thus, protecting the body from infections.

  • Reduces hunger: Dried coconut being high in fiber means that it can help keep you fuller for longer. In addition, when MCTs are metabolized by the liver, ketones are made. These ketones can reduce ghrelin in the gut (the “hunger hormone”) which leads to an appetite reduction.

  • Heart health: Coconut oil can increase HDL (“good”) cholesterol and turn the LDL (“bad”) cholesterol into a less harmful form.

  • Skin, hair, dental health: Using coconut oil topically on the skin can improve moisture, reduce symptoms of eczema and block 20% of ultraviolet rays from the sun. Coconut oil can protect hair from damage when applied topically. Oil pulling is a practice that uses coconut oil like a mouthwash. This method can kill harmful bacteria in the mouth, reduce bad breath, and improve dental health.

  • Boost brain health: MCTs have been shown to improve cognitive function in patients with milder forms of Alzheimer’s. Ketones made as a result of MCT metabolism can be used as form of energy for the brain as opposed to glucose. Those with alzheimer's may have parts of their brain that use glucose inefficiently, so using ketones can help feed the brain cells.

  • Reduce seizures: A ketogenic diet (very high fat, very low carbohydrates) can help reduce seizures in children suffering from drug-resistant epilepsy. The MCTs in coconut oil can increase blood concentration of ketone bodies which helps reduce seizures.

Coconut flour

  • Coconut flour is simply dried, ground up coconut meat.

  • Gluten-free, low in carbohydrates, high in fiber, great for ketogenic diets.

  • Ideal for baking, but because it is high in fiber you would need to use about ¼ the amount of coconut flour that you would with wheat or almond flour.
