In this blog we’d like to feature two specific ingredients, coconut and dates, which have experienced an increase of “mainstream” attention for their particularly notable nutritional value.
The Power of Coconut
Coconut meat is revered for its high nutritional value. While most plants aren’t high in saturated fat, coconut is. The fat content is high in medium chain fatty acids, which help to lower bad cholesterol and increase good cholesterol levels.
Coconut meat is rich in fiber, which is an important component of your daily diet to add your bulk to the stool which helps to move food through the digestive tract. Fiber also diminishes appetite as it makes you feel full, which aids in helping to make wiser decisions in your nutrition!
Coconut is also high in the trace nutrient manganese, which aids in metabolization of both fat and protein, stabilizes blood sugar, and calms the immune and nervous systems.
Coconut contains high amounts of potassium, which plays an important role in regulating proper fluid balance in the cells. Copper promotes healthy red blood cell production as well as aids in the sense of taste.
Dates: Nature’s Candy
Dates are a great source of carbohydrates. While carbohydrates seem to have a bad reputation, it’s important to remember they are an essential macronutrient that your body needs for energy. By making wise nutritional choices, such as with dates, to fill your nutritional needs, you’re helping to maximize your body’s functioning.
Just as with coconut, dates are very high in potassium and fiber.
Dates are also packed with magnesium. Magnesium aids protein synthesis, blood glucose control and muscle and nerve function in your body, and it helps regulate blood pressure. Pregnant mothers, in particular, need an especially high amount of magnesium in their diet, so dates are an excellent addition to their daily diet.
