Livstrong Extra Virgin Coconut Oil



Coconut oil (ours is extra virgin coconut) comes from the meat of coconuts harvested from the coconut palm. Coconut oil consists of at least 90% saturated fats, most of which are medium chain Triglycerides (MCTs), good fats. Coconut oil may provide several benefits. Here are ways coconut oil can benefit your pet's health:

Skin & coat health: Coconut oil is rich in fatty acids, including lauric acid, which can help promote a shiny and healthy coat in pets. It may also help alleviate dry skin and reduce itching, making it beneficial for pets with skin conditions or allergies.

Digestion support: Coconut oil may have mild antibacterial and antiviral properties, which can help improve digestion and support the immune system. It may also aid in the absorption of nutrients from food.

Dental health: Some pet owners brush their pets' teeth with coconut oil as it can help reduce bacteria in the mouth and improve overall dental hygiene.

Energy boost: Coconut oil contains medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), which can provide a quick energy source for active pets. It may particularly benefit working dogs or those engaging in strenuous physical activities.

Brain health: MCTs in coconut oil support healthy brain function and may benefit senior pets or those with cognitive issues.

Topical benefits: When applied directly onto the skin, it can help conditions like hot spots, bites, stings, or itchy, dry skin. It makes dogs' and cats’ coats glossy and sleek. 

Lauric Acid – along with another fatty acid, caprylic acid, that give coconut its antiviral and antimicrobial properties.  Our coconut oil is roughly half lauric acid, so it has about 3.5 grams per teaspoon.  We've already mentioned the anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties of coconut oil. The lauric acid is also supposed to fight off viruses.

In cats, it may reduce coughing and helps eliminate hairballs.

Other benefits include metabolic function, weight loss, arthritis, and bone health.
