Coconut Oil and Alzheimer’s Disease

Alzheimer’s is thought to 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, such as those in coconut oil.

Those who cook with coconut oil instead of olive oil (or cheaper vegetable oils) notice a distinct difference. Coconut oil is also a dense source of healthy calories. It can be used for massages and as a base for many salves, pastes and herbal suppositories.
