When discussing wellness, macronutrients like fat, protein and carbohydrates are what come to most minds. In matters of weight and health, a common belief is that fats should be avoided, and even healthy fats like those found in avocado, nuts and olive oil should be included only in moderation. This line of thought says that fats, and particularly saturated fats, all contribute to complications such as obesity and heart disease. Research is showing, however, that there is at least one very big exception to that rule. Coconut, and especially its oil, is one of nature’s superior foods, both nutritionally and medicinally, shown to be effective as an antiviral, antimicrobial, antibacterial high-energy healing food.
