Coconut Flakes

  • New studies show coconut fats--medium-chain triglycerides (MCT)--are absorbed directly by the liver, not stored in fat cells. This means they produce energy much faster, raising the body's metabolism.
  • A 2003 study showed MCTs in coconut flakes and oil helped burn more calories, contributing to weight loss. Dietary fiber from coconut flakes has been shown to curb cholesterol and a 2005 study indicated coconut water from squeezing coconut meat was significant in reducing hypertension.
