<h4><p style="color: rgba(20, 117, 135, 1)">Delicious, Nutritious, Coconut Milk...</p></h4>
Coconut milk is a high-calorie food. About 93% of its calories come from fat, including saturated fats known as medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), in particular, one called lauric acid. Lauric acid is converted in the body into a highly beneficial compound called monolaurin, an antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial that destroys a wide variety of disease causing organisms. It is therefore thought that consumption of coconut milk and other coconut derived foods may help protect the body from infections and viruses. MCFAs are rapidly metabolised into energy in the liver. It is thought that unlike other saturated fats, MCFAs are used up more quickly by the body and are less likely to be stored as fat.
<h4><p style="color: rgba(20, 117, 135, 1)">Superfood Status!...</p></h4>
Flax seeds are good sources of many nutrients. Their health benefits are mainly due to their content of omega-3 fats, lignans, ALA and fiber. Plant-based ALA fatty acids are proven to have heart health benefits and are linked to a lower risk of stroke. These super beneficial seeds contain a group of nutrients called lignans, which have powerful antioxidant and estrogen properties. They help in preventing breast and prostate cancer, as well as other types of cancer. With so much fiber packed in each tiny seed, adding flax seeds to your diet promotes regular bowel movements and can improve your digestive health.
