Purina Dog Food
What’s in this dog food that can help you too?
Find out what is working for older dogs, works for us too!
I noticed in a commercial that Purina is addressing the issue of cognitive decline in aging dogs, and have introduced a new brand of senior dog food that has MCT Oil in it (Medium Chain Triglycerides).
So despite not knowing anything about dog food and not having a dog…. my ears perked up immediately. MCT’s are a main component of coconut oil and are very effective in reversing cognitive decline in another species… ahem… HUMANS.
We add about 2 tablespoons of coconut oil to our breakfast smoothie everyday. It is a staple in our home. Coconut is anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-parasitic…. the reason is because it is chocked full of Lauric Acid.
I enjoyed watching these Purina commercials, they are filmed beautifully and it doesn’t hurt the subjects are adorable. Seriously, though I think they did a pretty good job of explaining why MCT’s are so effective in reversing some normal affects of aging.
Here’s a blog post I wrote several months ago about Coconut Oil too:
And here’s a couple more links in regards to what Purina is doing:
