Here is a yummy and easy way to reap the benefits of coconut oil for your dogs (without any of the side effects like loose stools from overdosing).
Banaban's extra Virgin coconut oil powder is made from 100% cold pressed air-dried certified organic coconut meat harvested in Fiji.
It is an excellent supplement for dogs who need extra energy such as:
Dogs recovering from illness
The Banaban Coconut Oil Powder is:
Soluble in liquid
Free from preservatives and additives
Rich in fibre, protein and lauric acid (which is a natural antibacterial, antimicrobial and antifungal)
Add 1-2 scoops to food; or do what I do - In a Nutribullet or similar, blitz a scoop in a banana smoothie made from coconut milk and kefir. My boys LOVE their daily smoothies!
Coconut oil is composed primarily of MCTs (Medium Chain Triglycerides) that are metabolised differently from other fatty acids; they go straight to the liver, where they are used as a quick source of energy.
