Among the many benefits of the coconut include its antioxidant properties, as well as its ability to regulate blood pressure and lower triglycerides in those with cholesterol
- High in fibre: 2 tablespoons of grated coconut provide almost 5 grams of dietary fibre, which translates into approximately 15% of the recommended daily fibre intake. This fibre helps regulate digestion, prevent constipation, reduce high cholesterol, increase satiety and control blood glucose levels.
- High in minerals: provides especially important minerals such as potassium, manganese, selenium and iron. In smaller quantities, we can also find copper, magnesium and zinc.
- High in vitamins: provides B vitamins (such as B1, B2, B3, B6, B7 and B9 or folic acid), as well as vitamin C, vitamin E and vitamin K. -Fat saturated: although the grated coconut is rich in saturated fat, it does not provide the same negative effects that, for example, it does provide the meat or whole milk products. In fact, it is a much healthier type of fat that helps lower cholesterol and high triglycerides.
