Can Pets Drink Coconut Water for Bad Breath?

You might have heard of natural remedies for human bad breath such as fennel, baking soda or cinnamon. While you could brush your dog’s teeth with baking soda, how many people would actually do that? When I came across this remedy using coconut water for bad breath, I thought I’d give it a try. It turns out there are a lot of other reasons to feed your pet coconut water.

Firstly, coconut water is not toxic to pets. In fact, the vitamins and minerals are great for your 4-footed companion (and a few birds too). According to ultimatehomelife.com  there are several vital reasons to use coconut water. Coconut water is the fluid inside of immature coconuts that’s rich in nutrients and vitamins. You can easily find a coconut with water by shaking it. You should hear the water “sloshing” around inside.  Here are some reasons to use coconut water for bad breath from Ultimate Home Life:

  1. Fight viruses.
  2. Keep harmful bacteria away.
  3. Protect from infections.
  4. Boost immune systems.
  5. Form red blood cells in the body.
  6. Improve dog coat and skin conditions.
  7. Keep dog coat smooth and glossy.
  8. Fight off annoying issues such as flea allergies and itchy skin.
  9. Improve dog odor.
  10. Reduce bad dog breath.
  11. Regulate and balance insulin and thyroid levels.
  12. Aid in healing arthritis or ligament problems.
  13. Aid in healing cuts, wounds, bites from insects and stings when applied to them.

Thus you can see that applying coconut water topically also is beneficial. It is possible to use coconut in other forms too  such as fresh coconut, dried, coconut oil, coconut milk and powdered coconut. How much should you give your pet? As with any new food it’s a good idea to introduce it slowly to make sure there are no side effects such as diarrhea. It also depends on the size of the pet, of course. Also, please avoid giving your pet the coconut shells as they may cause obstruction of the digestive system if the pet eats them.

Coconut water could be used as a treat. It’s great for a hot, summer day – a refreshing treat. Want to try some of CocosPure coconut water? Just click the button below and it will be at your place within a week.

Coconut Water Health Benefits You Might Not Know About

Coconut water is now in most grocery stores and certainly in every health food outlet. While you might buy one because it’s tasty and thirst quenching, there are also tons of health benefits to coconut water you might not know about. Here are just a few:

  • Controls High Blood Pressure – the potassium and magnesium content helps balance out the effect of sodium in the body
  • Helps Your Heart – coconut water increases the high-density lipoprotein (HDL or the “good” cholesterol) and lowers the LDL or low-density lipoprotein.
  • Promotes Weight Loss – “Coconut water is an ideal drink for weight loss. It is low in calories and easy on the stomach. In fact, this light and refreshing drink contains various bioactive enzymes that aid digestion and boost fat metabolism.”
  • Treats Migraine Headaches – hydration and magnesium help these headaches
  • Helps Hangovers – the electrolytes help counteract the effects of the alcohol and provide oxidation to your system. Here’s a hangover smoothie: 2 cups coconut water, 1 mango, 2 pieces of mint, 3 tablespoons lemon juice, 1/2 cup ice.

  Coconut Water Health Benefits You Might Not Know About

New Coconut Water Study Shows Great Potassium Level

A new study shows that the potassium level in coconut water is five times that available in Gatoraide or Poweraide. The study reported by James de Medeiros in Men’s Fitness Online  states that researchers giving a presentation at the National Meeting and Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS) showed evidence that coconut water contains more potassium but less sodium (salt) than other sports drinks.

Unfortunately the research company was not mentioned and the link did not connect to the actual study. The researchers concluded that coconut water would be the drink of choice for moderate sports workouts and would definitely help with leg cramps. However, for heavy workout involving a lot of sweating, another drink might be better containing more sodium. Mr. de Medeiros concludes, “While coconut water is an effective sports drink that suits the needs of many, it may not be the ultimate sports drink to feed all your needs.”

More research needs to be done about the various sports drinks, such as the long-term effects of sugar and other additives to sports drinks. Want to order some great coconut water to try for yourself? Just click this link and order some online today: https://cocospure.com/
