The many uses from the Tree of Life – Coconut Butter
Coconut butter is made from coconut meat that has been grounded into creamy paste. It can easily be confused with coconut oil, especially when coconut oil solidifies, but these are two different products.
Unlike coconut oil, coconut butter is rich in fibre, it aids digestion by maintain regularity of bowel movements. The fibre is also beneficial to control blood sugar levels and may help lower cholesterol.
On the other hand, like coconut oil, coconut butter contains lauric acid that possesses anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory properties. This will boost immunity and may help your body fight infections. It is also packed with medium-chain fatty acids that our body metabolizes differently than most other fats, thus increase calorie burn and energy levels.
Not only does coconut butter is good for your inside, studies show that it is also beneficial for your hair and skin!
