As I haven't been able to eat wheat, barley, oats and rye since developing coeliac disease I have been exploring other types of nutrition. This is not just to vary my diet but to try and give me a healthy boost and try and stay on the path of feeling well and reasonably satisfied and nourished. Some of the most marvellous things I have read has been to do with the properties and values of coconut in every type and form from coconut sugar all the way through to coconut oil.
I was therefore impressed to find that there appears to be a properties contained within coconut oil that reduces bad cholesterol and also acts as a preventative and possible reversal of some ot the symptoms of dementia and Alzheimer's disease.
Here is a link to a news item contained on the CBN channel:
It's wonderful to think that coconut in any of its forms is something that is safe for coeliacs!!
Here are the list of vitamins and minerals that coconut contains so it is like having a natural multi vitamin and mineral tablet - well worth adding to your daily diet ..
• Vitamin K
• Pantothenic Acid
• Vitamin B1 (this is also called thiamine)
• Vitamin B2 (this is also called riboflavin)
• Vitamin B6 -
• Vitamin C
• Vitamin E
• Coconut contains many other vitamins and minerals in tiny amounts as well as micro nutrients.
