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.
