The coconut tree (Cocos nucifera) is a member of the palm tree family (Arecaceae) and the only living species of the genus Cocos. The term “coconut” (or the archaic “cocoanut”) can refer to the whole coconut palm, the seed, or the fruit, which botanically is a drupe, not a nut. The name comes from the old Portuguese word coco, meaning “head” or “skull”, after the three indentations on the coconut shell that resemble facial features. They are ubiquitous in coastal tropical regions and cultural icons of the tropics.

Health benefits of Coconut!

Rich in Fiber: Coconuts are high in fiber, which helps bulk up your stool and supports bowel regularity, keeping your digestive system healthy. Just 1 cup (80 grams) of shredded coconut provides 7 grams of fiber.

The benefit of Coconut in your diet

Coconut recipes are incredibly versatile and offer a unique flavor to dishes. From sweet to savory, here you will find a variety of coconut recipes that make great dishes. Popular recipes include coconut chicken curry, coconut shrimp, and coconut cream pie. Coconut milk is also a great addition to smoothies, soups, and desserts. Coconut oil is also a popular cooking ingredient and is great for baking, stir-frying, and roasting. Coconut flour is a great gluten-free alternative for baking and is often used in vegan recipes.

Healthy Fats: Coconut meat contains large amounts of medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs), a type of saturated fat that is much easier for the human body to digest than animal fats.
These fats also called medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), have been demonstrated to boost the endurance of trained athletes.

Coconut Water: Coconut water is low in calories and carbs and can even help lower blood pressure. Coconut water is 94% water and is fat-free and cholesterol-free.
