General information

The coconut palm originated in the Oriental tropical regions. It now grows in the continent of Asia (India, Ceylon, Indonesia); in central and South America (Mexico, Brazil), and Africa which is the main producer - the key regions being Mozambique, Tanzania, and Ghana. The name “nucifera” in Latin, means nut holder. The coconut palm belongs to the Arecaceae (Palmae) family. It is a long lasting plant which can live to more than 100 years. It has a single trunk, 20-30m high, with a smooth, grey bark, marked by the scarring of the old leaves.

Health Benefits

The coconut is rich in potassium so ideal in the summer for restoring lost minerals. It is also rich in proteins and fats.Coconut milk does not appeal to some because of its cloudy appearance, however, it is very sweet; rich in sugars, minerals and vitamins, particularly C and B, and contains easy to assimilate proteins. It is an ideal drink for teeth and bones and is useful in the treatment of urinary tract disorders, constipation, nausea, fatigue, nervousness and general weakness. The coconut is also high in nutrients and ideal for frail people as it helps weight gain.
