Ketone bodies, which are given off when coconut oil’s fatty acids are metabolized by the liver, can be a perfect fuel source for the brain – a trait that can surely help Alzheimer’s patients.
A brain that has been impacted by Alzheimer’s disease cannot efficiently use glucose for fuel as it once did. Ketones help solve this problem by providing a different fuel source that the brain can use.
Think of this “fuel swapping” arrangement much like how a hybrid car switches between petrol and electricity – carbohydrates being the petrol, and ketone bodies acting as the much cleaner, more efficient electricity.
