According to a recent study whose results were published in the Neurology journal, a high blood sugar level compromises cognition. To promote mental health, it is important to ensure that the blood sugar levels does not fall or exceed the recommended levels.

Tortillas are prepared using wheat flour, and so they contain copious amounts of carbohydrates. Hence, if you want to avoid the mentioned health conditions, it is recommended to look for alternative recipes. One of the best alternatives to tortillas is low-carb coconut wraps. The rich inner white lining is also referred to as coconut meat and contains only 7 grams of carbohydrates per 2-by-2 inch wrap. This makes coconut wraps an ideal choice for someone who is on a low-carb diet.

It is also important to note that coconut wrap are rich in dietary fibers. By using them instead of the plain tortillas, they will promote digestion and bowel movement. In the recent past, coconut was considered unfriendly due to its high concentration of saturated fat. New studies have shown that saturated fats are actually harmless. The artery-clogging effect is a myth. Once ingested, the fatty acids are converted into Ketones, which reduce the risk of seizures.

Clearly, low-carb coconut wraps are more beneficial and safer to eat than tortillas. When preparing them, it is important that you stick to the instructions provided. Finally, you do not need to possess exceptional cooking skills to prepare coconut wraps. There are many online resources that you can access on the internet to learn the different ways of making them in your own kitchen.
