Coconut is Healthy
MCT: The Good Fat, The Fat-Burning Fat
In addition to being a delicious ingredient, the medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) or so-called medium-chain fatty acid (MCFA) found in coconut are the good, healthy fat you want to be eating. MCT or MCFA are not stored as fat in our body; instead they are rapidly metabolized, giving your body clean fuel to use as energy without causing an insulin spike like carbohydrates. This fat-burning fat attribute, along with coconut’s antiviral properties (see below), are some of the reasons why coconut is often referred to as the king of foods.
Over 50% of coconut fat is lauric acid. The next highest source of lauric acid is in human milk, which contains 6 to 10%. Lauric acid promotes a healthy immune system by protecting the body from infections and viruses with its antiviral, antifungal, and antibacterial properties.
Coconut Milk is Naturally Dairy Free
