The Health Benefits Of Coconoil® Virgin Coconut Oils For Horses

Although supplements can be a confusing topic for many pet owners, most horse owners have heard of the benefits of feeding fish oils. There are however, a variety of oils that you can also use to your horses’s benefit, each with different actions and benefits.

COCONOIL, COLD PRESSED VIRGIN Coconut oil consists of more than 90% saturated fats, with traces of few unsaturated fatty acids, such as monounsaturated fatty acids and polyunsaturated fatty acids. Most of the saturated fats in coconut oil are Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs). Most of the coconut oil benefits come from the MCTs.

For example, the lauric acid in coconut oil has antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal properties. Capric and caprylic acid have similar properties and are best known for their anti-fungal effects. In addition, MCTs are efficiently metabolized to provide an immediate source of fuel and energy, enhancing athletic performance and aiding weight loss.

The main component (more than 40%) of MCTs is lauric acid, followed by capric acid, caprylic acid, myristic acid and palmitic. Coconut oil also contains about 2% linoleic acid (polyunsaturated fatty acids) and about 6% oleic acid (monounsaturated fatty acids).
