Best types of nuts for your health

Coconuts

Like most types of nuts, coconuts contain significant amounts of fat, but unlike other nuts, which contain mostly long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids, coconuts provide fat that is almost all in the form of health-promoting short and medium-chain saturated fats, which are different from the saturated fats in animal products. Being shorter in length, these fatty acids are processed differently by the body and are preferentially sent to the liver to be burned as energy.
