We have all heard about the endless benefits of applying the fruit of the coconut palm tree via coconut oil. However, consuming the delicious fruit can be beneficial as well. “Coconut’s healthy fats and antibacterial nutritional make-up keep acne flare-ups away and help keep your skin moisturized, which is key for looking healthier and younger,” explains Brooke Alpert, MS, RD, CDN registered dietitian and founder of B Nutritious.
Consuming coconut regularly may enhance cholesterol levels and help minimize belly fat, which is actually a common risk factor for heart disease. As a plus, this amazing fruit is low in carbs and rich in amino acids, healthy fats, and fiber, making it an excellent choice for blood sugar control.
