CRAZY FOR COCONUT: Our Favourite Finds…

Crazy for coconut? Check out our favourite healthy and natural coconut based products.

More and more research suggests that eating, drinking and using coconuts are great for our health. So it’s no surprise this product only once found on exotic islands is now available to modern-day consumers. Supermarket shelves, fridges, beauty counters, flat lays…coconut products are popping up everywhere, and there’s a fantastic reason why.

Classified as a ‘superfood’, the saturated fats found in coconut has actually been found to decrease heart disease and improve cholesterol levels in some people. Populations that have been consuming coconut as a dietary staple have very few cases of any heart disease and coconut water also has extremely high levels of electrolytes, potassium and magnesium (which some say are a great remedy for leg cramps) so its a naturally hydrating alternative to water.

Most coconut products are all natural, organic and contain natural sugars and good fats. We have seen an increase in coconut oil used for cooking and baking as well as it’s natural beauty benefits.

We go a little crazy for coconut based products…So here are a few of our favourites:
