Are CocoTherapy� Coconut Chips Different from Dehydrated Coconut Chips found in Health Food Stores?
We often receive questions on the differences between organic coconut flakes you can buy at health food stores and CocoTherapy� Coconut Chips. While many of the benefits may be similar, CocoTherapy Coconut Chips are made specifically for maximum digestibility, while the traditional dehydrated coconut chips are not. What you see here may surprise you.
Dehydrated coconut meat is rich in nutrients and fiber; however it can be difficult to digest for most animals. We produce our CocoTherapy Coconut Chips in a special way to be highly digestible and easily assimilated in the body, while providing all the beneficial nutrients from medium-chain fatty acids (MCFA). Unlike other dehydrated coconut chips or flakes available in your grocery aisles or even health food stores, CocoTherapy coconut chips break down easily and quickly with just water.
Proof is in the Chips
The digestive system of some animals can not tolerate the typical raw dehydrated coconut chips found in grocery stores. Feeding your pets typical dehydrated coconut chips may stress their digestive system and often times the undigested coconut chips are passed either in the animal�s stool or vomit. However, our CocoTherapy Coconut Chips were uniquely developed to be easily digestible for animals.
To see how quickly CocoTherapy coconut chips break down, we took a leading dehydrated organic coconut chips brand (purchased from a popular health food store) and CocoTherapy Coconut Chips and placed them in a saucer of water.
1 teaspoon (5ml) per 10 pounds (5kg) of body weight, or 1 tablespoon (15ml) per 30 pounds (13.6 kg) of body weight. Start slowly, for example, start at a quarter of this and build up slowly. Use similarly for cats and other animals.
Our favorite method of dispensing: Simply place a tsp or so in the cupped palm of your hand and let the warmth of your hand melt the oil. Then let your pet lick the oil directly from your hand! Our pooches and kitties love it, and what a wonderful way to bond! Then rub any remaining oil on your own skin, and begin enjoying the benefits of soft, silky, skin!
As with all new supplements, start with small amounts, such as 1/8 - 1/4 teaspoon per day for small dogs, puppies, cats and kittens and 1 teaspoon for large dogs. Gradually increase the amount every few days.
What exactly is in coconuts that make it so good for your pet? Coconut is comprised primarily of a medium chain fatty acid called Lauric acid and is considered responsible for many of its health benefits. The only other abundant source of Lauric acid found in nature is in human breast milk. When Lauric acid is synthesized by the human or animal body, it produces the same substance, monoglyceride monolaurin that keeps infants from getting viral, bacterial, or protozoal infections. Lauric acid, synthesized into monolaurin is used to fight and destroy viruses and various pathogenic bacteria, protecting your pets against infection and boosting his immune system. Coconut oil also contains capric and caprylic acid, which have similar properties and are best known for their antifungal effects. Like lauric acid, capric acid can also help balance insulin levels.
