I started eating these one month ago. They have helped me to feel so much better, healthier and balanced mentally. I can not explain how it does this, but it does work wonders nutritionally. Here are some words by Bruce Fife, author of books dealing with coconut foods. "Nutritionists recommend that we get 20-35 grams of dietary fiber a day. Most Americans only get about 15 grams. Good sources of dietary fiber are whole grains, legumes, and nuts. Coconut is an ideal source of dietary fiber. Coconut has one of the highest percentages of fiber among all plant foods. Seventy-five percent of the total carbohydrate content is fiber. In comparison, the carbohydrate in green beans is only 30 percent fiber, in okra it is only 25 percent, and corn it is 18 percent. Because of its high fiber content, coconut makes an excellent source of dietary fiber and is now available as a dietary supplement. Coconut dietary fiber is made from finely ground, dried, and defatted coconut. Coconut dietary fiber has a higher fiber content than many other fiber supplements. It contains four times as much fiber as oat bran and twice as much fiber as wheat bran or flax seed meal. Unlike psyllium husk and wheat bran and most other sources of dietary fiber, coconut tastes good!"
