Coconut is one of the world's truly healthy foods, and indigenous people who live in parts of the world that consume a lot of coconut tend to be some of the healthiest people anywhere.
Coconut can help with weight loss (and goodness knows some sugar gliders could benefit here)... because it has a low glycemic index, it reduces appetite, so please know this and don't overdo feeding coconut treats, because they may not want to each much else and coconut alone is not the path to best health for your sugar gliders.
Coconut oil can increase energy expenditure which also helps to burn fat. So if you have sugar gliders that are of the lazy sort, and a bit chubby, you might consider this as their primary treat.
The lauric acid in coconut can kill bacteria, viruses. Pathogens like staph, yeast infections and fungi. And how fun is that to kill fungi with a food that is fun to eat?
The fatty acids in coconut are turned into ketones which can reduce seizures.
Rotating your treats and using treats that bring health benefits to the menu is just one way we can keep our sugar gliders healthier, longer!
I've been a personal fan of coconut for years. I consume organic coconut oil daily. It is high in Omega 3's, which help reduce inflammation. I use it primarily for symptoms of arthritis, and I've seen older sugar gliders display such signs as well. Best part is it's delicious!
