Nothing says Rio de Janeiro like coconut juice. Cariocas are among the world’s biggest consumers of green coconut juice, which that is sold from street corners and plazas to famed beaches like Copacabana and Ipanema. Did you know that Coconut is high in natural saturated fats. Saturated fats not only increase the healthy cholesterol (known as HDL cholesterol) in your body, but also help convert the LDL “bad” cholesterol into good cholesterol.The big takeaway is to practice caution and moderation when it comes to coconut oil, and be extra careful if you have high cholesterol.

By increasing the HDL in the body, it helps promote heart health and lower the risk of heart disease and yea that’s me a few years ago enjoying it in RIO DE JANERIO BRAZIL 🙂

When it comes to what you’re eating and drinking, pay attention to quantity and moderation,”
