There are several benefits consuming coconut on a regular basis. One benefit of coconut may include weight loss. Raw coconut is rich in the medium-chain triglycerides, which are a type of dietary fat that may help to encourage weight loss. According to an article published in the June 2006 edition of the Ceylon Medical Journal, the medium-chain triglycerides convert into monoglycerides and medium-chain free fatty acids during digestion, which are two substances the body uses immediately for energy rather than storing as fat. In addition to their metabolism-boosting properties, the medium-chain triglycerides may also help to curb hunger more effectively than the other forms of fat, which leads to a lower calorie intake over time. As a result, the specific fats found in raw coconut may promote a healthy body weight and help you shed those unwanted pounds.

Coconut is also a good source of dietary fiber. Raw coconut is rich in dietary fiber, with one cup of shredded coconut meat yielding seven grams, according to the USDA National Nutrient Database. Diets that consume coconut may help to prevent blood sugar swings, provide long-lasting satiation that may int turn discourage overeating, lower blood pressure, protecting against diabetes and may even boost your immune system. Also, the fiber found in raw coconut may improve your cholesterol levels by reducing the amount of low-density lipoprotein also known as LDL which is cholesterol in your bloodstream. Coconut in the diet may help with your immunity. Several substances found in raw coconut may also help to boost immune function and help your body to fight disease. Specific fats found in coconut meat to include caprylic, capric and lauric fatty acids are antibacterial, antiprotozoal, and antiviral, which may help to bolster your immune system and destroy pathogens. Monolaurin, which is a substance that is abundant in coconut fat, may be particularly useful for combating viruses, and essential fatty acids found in coconut may also help control a form of yeast overgrowth known as candida. The good news is that coconut is easy to add to your diet with so many coconut recipes and food ideas and is just as good on its own, eaten raw or coconut milk.
