Alzheimer's disease is a heartbreaking condition, both for patients and their families. The latest research offers hope for both, however, as its been discovered that coconut oil can help rejuvenate damaged brain tissue.
The latest research on Alzheimer's has indicated that the disease is related to a problem with glucose uptake in the brain. The mechanism for glucose uptake in the brain is an area of only recent study. What is known thus far, however, is that the brain actually produces its own insulin. When the brain loses that ability, neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer's, may result. Portions of the brain can start to atrophy from lack of energy from glucose, which leads to impaired functioning and eventual loss of memory.
Coconut oil is offering hope for recovery from Alzheimer's disease because the medium chain fatty acids it contains are converted to ketones that feed the brain directly, allowing brain tissue to regenerate even after it has lost the ability to utilize glucose. In clinical studies, MCTs have produced better results in Alzheimer's patients than any other treatment currently known.
Mary Newport, M.D., documented her own husband's incredible progress in reversing the disease using coconut oil as a source of ketones to regenerate his brain. Her book, Alzheimer's Disease: What if there was a Cure? is available for people interested in learning more about this groundbreaking new approach to treating or preventing Alzheimer's disease.
Another researcher in the area of utilizing coconut products for promoting brain health, Bruce Fife, N.D., has released a book called Stop Alzheimer's Now!: How to Prevent & Reverse Dementia, Parkinson's, ALS, Multiple Sclerosis & Other Neurodegenerative Disorders.
Both books are available from amazon.com.
