No comments

The origin of coconut is disputable as coconut fossils have been found in South America, Malaysia and India. Some of these fossils date back to about 55 million years ago.

A coconut tree is part of the “palm tree” family and is mostly found in tropical areas around the world. When a coconut is still young it contains large quantities of water, when it matures the  water content is a lot less. Believe it or not but each part of a coconut can be used. The water on the inside is drinkable, the white of the coconut can be eaten, used as flavoring and in medicine, the outer part of the coconut can be used as charcoal. More uses can be seen in the infoGraphic at the bottom of the page.

Here are a few health benefits of coconut:
