100% Certified Virgin Organic Coconut Oil
Coconut oil has a fantastic nutritional profile, so when consumed it can promote overall health in a number of ways. Coconut oil is packed with healthy saturated fats – medium chain triglycerides (MCT) – which can promote digestive health, support the immune system and metabolic function and contribute to thyroid health. MCTs are easily digestible, which provides an immediate source of energy and can support weight loss. This is very beneficial for pets who are overweight, suffer from hypothyroidism or need an energy boost.
When applied topically to the skin, coconut oil can improve moisture in the skin, which in term helps to reduce skin conditions such as eczema and itchy skin. It can also promote coat health, making it shinier, softer and silkier.
Lauric acid makes up about 50% of the fatty acids found in coconut oil. Lauric acid forms a substance called monolaurin when consumed in food. Monolaurin can destroy harmful bacteria, viruses and fungi which can be potentially very dangerous for cats and dogs. It can also support ear health and can disinfect cuts and wounds on your pet’s skin, when applied topically.
Our coconut oil is available in 400g pots.
Feed 1 teaspoon per 5kg, or one tablespoon per 15kg, per day or apply directly to the skin for topical conditions.
