Nature has done its best to pack a large number of nutrients and medicinal elements and compounds in one plant. Coconut is the fruit of the coconut palm and grows in the tropics. It has been known for centuries as a source of nutrients and healing elements. The most important products obtained from coconut, which are important from the point of view of human health, are coconut oil and coconut flour. Coconut oil is rich in positive triglycerides, then polyunsaturated fatty acids (linoleic acid), mono-unsaturated fatty acids (oleic acid), fatty alcohols, polyphenols that are responsible for the smell and taste of coconut oil, vitamins E and K and various minerals. The use of this oil contributes to the regulation and stimulation of metabolism, reduction of blood pressure and body weight, reduction of the amount of cholesterol and blood sugar, and it also has antiviral and antibacterial effects (strengthening of immunity). This oil is especially important in the diet because it is less caloric than all other oils. Coconut flour is especially good because it does not contain gluten and does not cause inflammatory processes in the body, and it is rich in fiber and protein, twice as much as wheat and other cereal flour. Due to this feature, it is very important in lowering high cholesterol and blood sugar.
