Organic Coconut Oil

The health benefits of coconut oil in humans include hair care, skin care, stress relief, maintaining cholesterol levels, weight loss, increased immunity, proper digestion and metabolism, relief from kidney problems, heart diseases, high blood pressure, dental care, and bone strength.”

But how can this be helpful for pets? Below is a list of health benefits for our furry friends in accordance with Dr. Bruce Fife:

• Improves digestion and nutrient absorption
• Aids healing of digestive disorders like inflammatory bowel syndrome and colitis
• Reduces or eliminates bad breath in dogs
• Aids in elimination of hairballs and coughing
• Contains powerful antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal agents that prevent infection and diseases
• Regulates and balances insulin and promotes normal thyroid function
• Helps prevent or control diabetes
• Helps reduce weight, increases energy
• Aids in arthritis or ligament problems

So although it is clearly great for allergies, we would like to go one step further and talk about yet another great benefit from this incredible fat: its therapeutic properties on your pet’s skin. Besides all the incredible info on the positive health benefits of ingesting coconut oil for you and your pets, it has also been used for decades by professional massage therapists to help protect skin from the aging effects of free radicals and to help improve the appearance of skin with its anti-aging benefits. Our logic was that we should wait a few months until the winter; a time for dry skin, thin coats, cracked noses and paws, and flaky skin! Continuing with Dr. Bruce Fife’s findings, coconut oil:

• Clears up skin conditions such as eczema, flea allergies, contact dermatitis, and itchy skin
• Reduces allergic reactions and improves skin health
• Makes coats become sleek and glossy, and deodorizes doggy odor
• Prevents and treats yeast and fungal infections, including candida
• Disinfects cuts and promotes wound healing
