Alzheimer’s disease is indeed very traumatic. It can occur to any one of us as we age. It is the gradual deterioration of mental health and capacity due to natural causes. It occurs generally to people in middle and old age. There are very few cures that are recognized by conventional medicine. But there now claims that coconut oil can help cure Alzheimer’s disease.
An initial reference to coconut oil being used to treat Alzheimer’s was made in Dr. Mary Newport’s bestseller “Alzheimer’s disease: What if there was a cure?” This bestseller sparked many people into using coconut oil as a cure, but subsequently no study was able to pure that coconut oil can cure it and hence conventional medicine doesn’t recognize coconut oil as a cure.
But a recent study was conducted by “Nutricion Hospitalaria” on 2015 testing the effects of coconut oil. Spanish researchers conducted a study on a sample of participants that had no diabetic complications. They asked the participants to use 40 ml of coconut oil every day, as this is considered to be the recommended dosage. To their surprise, they saw astonishing results in their mental abilities. There is also another set of researchers who have conducted a similar experiment in Florida and they are expected to polish their results in 2016. Many believe that they had a great success rate in their experiment.
Cooking oil that is being used contains trans-fat, as they are mainly hydrogenated and semi-hydrogenated. They are extremely bad harmful for heart health and can cause several hearth diseases and arthritis. Coconut oil on the other hand is not hydrogenated and has saturated fats which are good for hearth health.
Many people believe that coconut oil can help prevent Alzheimer’s disease in the first place. The brain constitutes 2% of the total body mass and more than 25% of cholesterol in the body is stored here. Cholesterol plays an important role in the proper functioning of the brain. Coconut oil is made up of medium chain triglycerides. These compounds can be easily broken down by the liver and can be used an energy source. Fatty cells that aren’t converted will be stored as fat in the body.
Type-2 diabetes can be cured with the ketones found in coconut oil, which are metabolized by the liver. This can also be used as fuel for the brain and improves blood flow in the brain,
It is recommended that atleast three tablespoons of coconut oil is consumed on a daily basis for improved mental health.
