MCT Coconut Oil Extract for Dogs and Cats
Single food for dogs and cats
Medium-chain fatty acids, known as MCTs, consist of 6 to 10 carbon atoms and are metabolised more quickly than long-chain fatty acids. Typically, MCTs are found together with other fatty acids in coconut oil. In comparison, the Futtermedicus MCT coconut oil extract contains the medium-chain fatty acids caprylic acid and capric acid in higher concentrations. In the liver, the medium-chain fatty acids are preferentially oxidised and more ketone bodies are produced, which, in addition to the primary energy source glucose, provide an alternative energy supply for the brain.
MCT coconut oil extract from Futtermedicus
Futtermedicus MCT oil is made from coconut oil without the use of palm or rapeseed oil and is odourless and tasteless. It is ideal for daily use and should be slowly increased in quantity at the beginning.
