Coconuts are great for the immune system. Apart from being associated with anti-microbial, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties, studies have found Lauric Acid increases good cholesterol in the body. Almost half of the coconut’s fatty acid profile consists of Lauric acid. Apart from mother’s milk, there aren’t too many natural sources that have such a high Lauric acid content. They have a rich mineral profile which includes Iron, Phosphorus, Potassium, Copper and Manganese. Coconuts are a rich source of dietary fibre. They improve the body’s ability to absorb Calcium and Magnesium, which encourage strong healthy bones and teeth.
