Certified organic dried coconut is a rich source of lauric acid (anti – fungal, antimicrobial) in addition to being a great source of dietary fibre.
Coconuts are great for the immune system. Apart from being associated with anti-microbial, anti – fungal and anti – viral properties, studies have found lauric acid increases good cholesterol in the body. Almost half of the coconut’s fatty acid profile consists of lauric acid. Apart from mother’s milk, there aren’t too many natural sources that have such a high lauric acid content. They have a rich mineral profile which includes iron, phosphorus, potassium, copper and manganese. Coconuts are a rich source of dietary fibre. They improve the body’s ability to absorb calcium and magnesium, which encourage strong healthy bones and teeth.
About Loving Earth
Loving Earth is based on the philosophy that the earth is a living organism, popularised by James Lovelock’s Gaia theory.
The very same idea is at the heart of many indigenous cultures around the world. This philosophy consists of an immense respect for our environment, recognising our own physical bodies as being an indispensable part of that environment. Accordingly, the three central principles of Loving Earth are healthy, sustainable and fair. These ideals have been extremely important to us since the beginning and are the foundation of everything that we do.
