Coconut offers a rich source of vitamins and minerals as well as a unique healthy saturated fat, called lauric acid. Lauric acid is a medium chain triglyceride which is readily absorbed by the body. Lauric acid has been popularized and promoted for its antiviral, antimicrobial and antifungal properties. This fatty acid is also speculated to ‘boost’ metabolism and has been linked to weight loss.
