From the Physician’s Desk … Weekly Blog! A reader’s request …

==============================

Greetings my dear readers!

Coconut_greenAs many of you may know … I grew up in the beautiful islands of the Caribbean. I am, therefore admittedly, impartial about certain things…such as COCONUTS! Someone request that I blog about the properties of coconut. No problem mon.  For inspiration, I just enjoyed a few bites of “dark chocolate covered pieces of coconuts” …  *smile*

It is said, that those who consistently use Coconut products, enjoy an overall wealth of benefits, such as:

  • Prevention (decrease) of Obesity
  • Improvement of Heart Health
  • Improvement of Digestion
  • High dietary fiber
  • Low Glycemic Index
  • Quick energy boost
  • Reduces sweet cravings

  • contains no trans-fat,
  • Is gluten free
  • Has healing properties against bacteria, virus, parasites and fungus
  • Helps support overall Immune System functions

My vote: Coconut makes anything tastes better! But is there scientific proof of these benefits?

Because I am not the expert in this area … I will allow you to read more here,
