The coconut is a unique fruit that is well known for providing health benefits such as the reduction of heart disease incidence rate, bactericidal properties, improve metabolism and reduction of tooth decay.
Well there is a danger:
“Coconut oil, milk and cream are all high in unhealthy saturated fat, which raises bad cholesterol levels, clogs the arteries and increases the risk of heart disease”
However, this doesn’t mean that coconut products are bad for you; it simply means that it should be taken with moderacy in mind.
Supporting this, the Coconut Research Center’s Dr Bruce Fife recommends one to three tablespoons of coconut oil a day for health maintenance.
