Ingredient Spotlight: Coconut

Coconut contains antibacterial, anti fungal and antiviral properties and is widely used by many people for a number of medicinal purposes.

 

According to Dr. Karen Becker, “Coconut oil is a concentrated source of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), which may have positive effects on your pet's cognitive function. This oil is also a rich source of lauric acid, which is a powerful antimicrobial agent. Coconut oil has antifungal and antibacterial properties as well.”
