Coconut Oil & The Raw and Natural Dog Summit
Hello fellow pet lovers! I was just thinking about how grateful I am for all of you and your trust in Ruff Ruff Raw. I love talking with you and listening to your stories and discussing your questions. Please feel free to contact me through my email, facebook or calling the store!
Recently I went to the Raw and Natural Dog Summit in Chicago. I learned a lot from the various experts on nutrition and health. One company that I connected with was Cocotherapy. These two sisters from the Philippines, grew up using coconut oils and eating coconut all their lives. They learned to use coconut for food and health in their daily lives. Their family owns a coconut farm in the Philippines, and have harvested coconut for generations. So, these sisters know a ton about coconut!
Here are some highlights about coconuts and oils that they discussed.
- Not all coconut oil is created equal. Of course, you say, but how? Depending on when it’s harvested, organic, cold pressed, virgin (there’s no such thing as extra virgin coconut oil) and how it’s processed can affect the quality of it. Cocotherapy only grows non-gmo, organic coconuts that are harvested when ripe and cold presses it into a human grade, raw coconut oil. They package it in glass jars as well.
- Most coconut oils on the shelf at stores have heavy metals. Cocotherapy oils do not. I now only use their product for myself and my family. I use it to cook with, as a supplement and as a face wash and moisturizer.
Coconut oil has many health benefits and uses.
- Higher in lauric acid which is a beneficial medium chain fatty acid that can be digested and used by our bodies organs.
- Lower moisture content, which keeps the fats from becoming rancid, even after 3 years.
- Clear up the skin of rashes, eczema and dermatitis.
- Reduce allergic reactions and inflammation when taken orally or topically.
- Disinfect cuts and promote wound healing.
- Improves digestion and nutrient absorption.
- Clean teeth and help with bad breath-especially if you include an essential oil.
- Helps control diabetes and regulate insulin.
- Help with weight management.
- And more!!
