A major constituent of unrefined coconut oil, lauric acid, has been found to be responsible for its antimicrobial effects. Lauric acid is also present in breast milk and is important for protecting infants from viral, bacterial or protozoal infections. Researchers looking for an inexpensive way to fight Candida infections have found coconut oil to be more effect in-vitro than Flucanosole, a potent prescription drug. Since Candida Albicans is the organism responsible for yeast infections in infant birds, a small amout of coconut oil added to hand feeding formula may provide some extra protection. Coco Loro's high lauric acid content can provide the following benefits:

  • Weight loss (if needed)
  • Cholesterol control
  • Energy boost, increased metabolism
  • Healthy, supple skin
  • Lustrous, bright feathers
  • Immune system boost
  • Helps prevent bacterial and fungal infections
  • Pleasant coconut taste, aroma and palatability

Unrefined coconut oil has been found to reduce cholesterol in high cholesterol individuals and improve cholesterol balance by increasing HDL and reducing LDL cholesterol. Coconut oil stimulates the thyroid gland and thus increases metabolism to consume more calories. Therefore, birds that are prone to become overweight on seed and nut diets (such as Amazons and African Greys) may benefit from coconut oil supplementation in their diet. The weight-loss effect was noted many years ago when farmers tried to fatten animals more quickly by feeding coconut oil. The animals actually lost weight and became more muscular. The farmers raised fatter animals by switching to corn and soybean feed.
