Why coconut oil is so vital for your animals health

Coconut oil has been used for centuries as a brain food as well as in the treatment of skin allergies because of its healing properties.
In Ayuveda and traditional Chinese Medicine coconut oil has been used as part of a functional integrative approach to use food as medicine.

In this video I will share the benefits of adding coconut oil to your diet and your pets.

There are many reasons to let your pet indulge in some coconut oil every day including keeping their heart’s and brains healthy.

Coconut oil also contains lauric acid, a saturated fatty acid that converts in the body to monolaurin, a monoglyceride compound with numerous beneficial properties, including anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, anti-fungal and anti-protozoal. Lauric acid actually destroys lipid-coated bacteria, fungus and viruses such as herpes, the measles, influenza, hepatitis C and HIV, ringworm and athlete’s foot.

In addition, studies show that MCTs such as those found in coconut oil provide a wide range of health benefits, including:

• Help with weight loss (MCTs increase metabolism, send signals of satiety and cannot be stored as fat)
• Improve digestion and absorption of fat-soluble vitamins
• Benefit the skin and coat
• Provide a rapid form of non-carbohydrate energy
