4 Doctors on Coconut Oil & Alzheimer’s



4 doctors discuss why they recommend coconut oil for an Alzheimer’s & dementia diet. For more details, check out http://AlzheimersWeekly.com

Dr. Anderson advocates coconut oil for his nursing home’s Alzheimer’s & dementia diet.

He explains 3 core benefits:

1. Coconut oil is rich in MCTs, which provide ketones as brain backup fuel. This can help offset the lack of energy from glucose that is common to a brain with dementia.
2. Coconut oil offers a low-carb solution to insulin resistance from diabetes. (Type-2 diabetes is common in seniors with dementia. Alzheimer’s is sometimes called Type-3 diabetes.)
3. Dr. Anderson sees these benefits incidentally improving problems of agitation, behavior and too many pills.
