Desiccated coconut supports digestive health due to its' high fibre content. Fibre is especially important for runners as it helps maintain consistent energy levels throughout our runs by helping with nutrient absorption. It does this by regulating blood sugar levels as it slows down the absorption of sugars into the bloodstream. This can prevent rapid spikes and crashes in our energy levels during our runs. Additionally, desiccated coconut is nutrient dense. It provides us with essential vitamins like Vitamin C and E, minerals such as Potassium and Magnesium, and antioxidants, all of which support our overall health. So whether added to smoothies, homemade energy balls, or used as a topping or coating, desiccated coconut offers numerous nutritional benefits, making it a valuable addition to a runner's diet. Enjoy!
