Coconut provides minerals you need to keep your connective tissues strong and healthy. Connective tissues are a group of tissues that include your skin, bones, teeth, tendons and ligaments. All of these tissues contain large amounts of collagen representing tough and resilient protein fibers that form networks and hold your tissue together. Both copper and manganese found in coconut desiccated keep your tissues strong as they support healthy collagen production.
Manganese is important when it comes to energy metabolism and is also known to promote the absorption of calcium in the body. It can help to regulate your blood sugar levels and has been known to aid prevention in developing diabetes, arthritis and osteoporosis.
