Natural Alzheimer’s Reversing Oil That is Beating Prescription Drugs

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a
degenerative brain disorder that
breaks down and eventually destroys
brain cells and the neurons  that
connect brain cells to one another.

This damage causes a decline in
memory, behavior, and mental

Every person experiences AD differently.
For some patients, the disease progresses slowly and leaves
mental function largely intact for several years.
For others, however, the disease is aggressive and quickly robs
people of their memory and mental capabilities.
In the end, AD eventually becomes severe enough to disrupt
daily life.
The potential health benefits of coconut oil have been celebrated
since ancient times by different cultures around the world.
It’s been used as an anti-fungal treatment, a hair-strengthener and a
skin softener.
Coconut oil, ketones and Alzheimer’s disease
What does all of this have to do with coconut oil helping people with Alzheimer’s disease?
Coconut oil advocates believe that the cognitive benefits experienced by people with
Alzheimer’s can be traced to so-called “ketone bodies,” the biological byproducts of the
coconut oil digestion process. Ketone bodies are one of the few things that can serve as
an alternate fuel source for brain cells when glucose isn’t available or cannot be absorbed
as efficiently (as is the case in people with Alzheimer’s).

The human body doesn’t typically produce many ketone bodies on its own, unless a person
is following a diet that is extremely low in carbohydrates. However, consuming coconut
oil can create a temporary state of hyperketonemia—where the number of ketone bodies
in a person’s blood stream is greatly elevated.

How Coconut Oil Affects the Body and Mind
For best results, experts suggest organic, cold-pressed, non-hydrogenated, virgin coconut oil
– and don’t let the word “oil” frighten you. Coconut oil is a heart-healthy oil that is free of
cholesterol and trans-fats, and provides many benefits in addition to improving brain health, including:

  • 1.Improving the body’s use of insulin
  • 2.Improving cholesterol by increasing HDL (good cholesterol)
  • 3.Boosting thyroid function resulting in increased energy
  • 4.Acting as an antioxidant and natural antibiotic
  • 5.Improving overall health of skin and hair

A recent University of Oxford study suggested that although the effects of coconut oil
may be temporary, Alzheimer’s and dementia patients have indeed seen short-term
benefits resulting from its use. This research supports Dr. Newport’s theory that ketones,
which are byproducts of the breakdown of fats in the body, play an important role in
brain health. The idea is that by boosting ketones, found in coconut oil, we can improve
cognitive function.

Adding Coconut Oil to Your Diet
If you decide to add this “super food” to your diet to promote brain health and prevent
the internet is a great source for coconut oil recipes.
