Coconut oil may be able to reverse the progression of Alzheimer’s disease

(NaturalNews) Reliable conclusions about the causes of Alzheimer’s disease remain elusive, and effective drugs to treat the disease remain equally scarce. An actual pharmaceutical cure seems as close to becoming reality as a cure for cancer (i.e. nowhere in sight). Yet a Florida doctor was actually able to reverse her husband’s Alzheimer’s disease just by giving him four teaspoons of coconut oil per day. In the course of a year he not only regained the ability to exercise and to care for himself, but his brain atrophy was completely halted.

The most cutting-edge research suggests that Alzheimer’s may stem from an inability of the brain to process glucose, leading to cell death. But the brain has another source of fuel: ketones, produced by the body from mid-chain triglycerides like those found in coconut oil. In fat, the most promising experimental Alzheimer’s drugs being tested today is nothing more than medium-chain triglycerides derived from coconut and palm kernel oil.

Coconut oil also turns out to be an extraordinary cooking oil because it resists smoking, even at high temperatures. Try cooking in coconut oil instead of olive oil (or cheaper vegetable oils) and you’ll notice a clear difference. Finally, coconut oil is also a fantastic food storage item as long as you can keep it cool. It’s a dense source of healthy calories that’s usable as both food and medicine. In fact, it can be used as the base for many salves, pastes or even herbal suppositories.
