There are other’s that I would recommend (and could be future posts) such as high quality Omega 3s which are beyond a superfood! A staple in my diet either through whole foods or supplements.

P.S. In the 1940s farmers where trying to figure out a way to fatten up there cattle (and chickens), they fed them tons of coconut fat and in both cases, the animals were losing fat mass, leaning out and improving their health stats!

Stay Healthy & Happy!
