Coconut truly is a superfood.  Here are 5 coconut benefits that will help you burn fat, prevent disease, and feel more energy and focus.  

-The medium chain fats (MCTs) contained in coconut and coconut oil can boost your metabolism by up to 5%, helping you to burn more calories each day.  It even appears to preferentially help remove abdominal fat. 

-Coconut contains Lauric Acid, which can help fight off harmful bacteria, viruses, fungi, and infections like Candida.

-The healthy fat in coconut can actually help reduce hunger.  This means the more coconut that you eat, the less likely you are to overeat other foods. 

-Coconut can actually help to boost your HDL (good) cholesterol

-The MCTs in coconut have been shown to help Alzheimer’s patients improve their brain function immediately. 

In order to experience the full benefits of coconut, you need to make sure the coconut products you are buying actually contain mostly pure, organic coconut, and aren’t filled with a bunch of flavorings and fillers.  As an example, Starbucks just started offering coconut milk as an alternative to other coffee creamers, but with an ingredients list that contains tricalcium phosphate, carrageenan, gellan gum, corn dextrin, xanthan gum, guar gum, and “natural flavors”, you won’t experience the superfood benefits of the coconut.

That’s why we have made such a strong effort at Nikki’s Coconut Butter to make sure you are getting all the superfood benefits of coconut.  Each jar starts with only 1 ingredient, organic coconut, ground down to create a smooth coconut butter.  We then add other healthy ingredients like nuts, cacao, vanilla, and coconut sugar to create fun and amazing flavors.  Our best-selling Vanilla Cake Batter only has 5 ingredients: Organic Coconut, Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Coconut Sugar, Organic Vanilla Extract, and Pink Himalayan Sea Salt.
