Expert pushes coconut oil

Coconut oil possesses nutritional and health benefits according to Dr Bruce Fife of the Coconut Research Centre of Colorado, USA. Dr Fife, an author, certified nutritionist and naturopath, is in Fiji to introduce new ways of using coconuts and its by-products.

Dr Fife is director of the Coconut Research Centre in Colorado Springs, a non-profit organisation whose purpose is to educate people about the health and nutritional aspects of coconuts.

He argues that coconuts contain a special group of fats known as medium chain triglycerides (MCT) which when used is place of other dietary fats, reduces body fat, resulting in lower weight.

Dr Fife said MCTs in coconut oil were an immediate source of body fuel and produced energy instead of fat.

Dr Fife will conduct a public lecture on the health properties of coconut on July 13 in Suva. Please read details on my other blog,
