Energy Juice by @ChefTijani

Breaking Fast with one of my favorite energy juice to make me run up these hills of #Jamaica in search of the best medicinal plants on the island 🏝 Let’s drink our breakfast together for the next 7 days instead of the carbs and starches most people eat first thing in the morning that steals your energy. We’ll do a juice or fruit smoothie together and let’s see how you feel at the end of 7 days. A salad for lunch is recommended and no meals after sunset 🌅 Can you hang? Let me know! Who’s up for it? Let’s go! - @ChefTijani

Research suggests that coconuts provides nutritious fats and various other potential health benefits producing stamina and vital energy.

Coconut is generally regarded as a source of healthy fat. The meat contains protein and fiber, as well as some essential minerals such as:

  • Iron

  • Manganese

  • Copper

  • Magnesium

Historically, people have used coconut as part of traditional medicine. The meat is said to, among other things:

  • Counteract some poisons

  • Protect against disease

  • Ease inflammation

  • Kill bacteria

Researchers have studied some, but not all, of the potential health benefits of coconut. It could:

Improve your endurance. Coconut meat contains large amounts of medium chain fatty acids (MCFAs), a type of saturated fat that is much easier for the human body to digest than animal fats. These fats, also called medium chain triglycerides (MCTs), have been demonstrated to boost the endurance of trained athletes.

Give you better oral health. The MCFAs found in coconut meat also contain antimicrobial properties. These can be useful in preventing infections related to root canals and other teeth issues. Although eating coconut meat is not a substitute for proper dental hygiene, it can help kill some of the unwanted bacteria found in your mouth and protect your gums and teeth from infection or cavities.
