The Tree of Life!

Coconut is really an amazing food. In the Pacific Islands, the coconut palm is known as “the tree of life”, they believe that coconut is the cure for almost all illness. Many cultures around the world rely upon the coconut for its nutritional properties and scores of practical uses.

Whether you are eating coconut meat, stirring Coconut Cloud into your coffee, or using coconut oil to cook your favorite meal, it is always a delicious source of fiber, vitamins, amino acids and minerals. Coconuts are also rich in calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorous, iron, selenium, sodium and have almost the same level of electrolytes as human plasma! Along with all the wonderful vitamins and minerals, coconuts also contain lauric acid, which plays a fundamental role in building and strengthening the body’s immune system. Coconut is an ideal choice for a vegan diet because it is a good source of protein and, in my opinion, the best tasting milk alternative.

Within the last few years Coconut products have exploded in popularity, and with good reason. Coconut is just as delicious as it is beneficial. You can’t beat having something wonderful that lowers cholesterol and the chance of heart disease! The coconut palm is truly the Tree of Life. Hooray for coconut!
