    Coconut oil’s ketogenic properties have been known for quite some time, as has the fact that it is a highly saturated fat not prone to lipid peroxidation which is a problem with polyunsaturated oils. Polyunsaturated oils have largely replaced saturated fats in the American diet, and lipid peroxidation is known to be a precursor to Alzheimer’s. The ketones found in coconut oil provide a fuel to the brain that is thought to be very beneficial to those suffering from dementia and Alzheimer’s. These facts about coconut oil are not new, but their emphasis in helping people with these problems received national exposure in 2008 with the publishing of Dr. Mary Newport’s story.

    That's a legitimate concern. Too many people start out with too much coconut oil. Start very slow, being sure to mix it in with food, preferably food high in fiber and protein, as that is how it is packaged in nature inside the coconut. Alternatively, you can start out with dried coconut chips or flakes, if she like the taste of coconut. If not, hide it in food but start slow, just a teaspoon at a time. It can actually lead to weight gain if she can tolerate it.

    My daughter told me about coconut oil after I started suffering severe and disturbing memory loss and brain fog to the point that I could barely have a conversation with anyone. I've been using it for over a year now and am very pleased to be myself again. The fog is gone and I'm able to drive safely again. I've been able to resume my hobbies: knitting and crochet because I can read and remember the patterns now. I use 3 or 4 TBSP per day, stirred into my coffee. I use organic virgin coconut oil which I order online because my small town doesn't have it. Over time, I found an additional benefit: my joints have stopped cracking all the time and I'm much more flexible once again. I'm 65 years old. My father died after a long struggle with Alzheimer's Disease. Therefore, I am dedicated to trying to avoid developing it myself now that they have discovered there is likely a genetic link to the disease. To anyone who decides to try the oil, be patient. Not everyone has a rapid response. It was almost a week until I noticed a difference, and a month before I actually felt "normal". Best wishes to anyone struggling with memory loss or who has a loved one who is struggling with it.

    You can incorporate coconut oil into your cooking, baking, and drinks like coffee and smoothies. See this post for some examples: http://coconutoil.com/how-to-use-coconut-oil-there-are-hundreds-of-uses-of-coconut-oil/ As far as quantity, you can read what people are saying in the testimonies on this page. People are consuming anywhere from 3 tablespoons of coconut oil a day up to nine tablespoons. But few can start out that high. You need to work you way up.

    Can you eat the coconut oil right out of the container or is it better to cook something in it? How much is considered the amount to consume daily?

    Can you tell me if coconut oil capsules have the same benefits as regular virgin-oil. Would the caps be more readily absorbed or not.

    A friend e-mailed my husband Dr. Neport's video clip last week. I watched it and told my husband that it couldn't hurt to try. My mother is at end-stage Alzheimers. I found the coconut oil fairly easily and started using it instead of butter, grease, or other oils in all my food preperations. In one week I have noticed a remarkable improvement in my mother. She is holding lucid conversations and has shown cognative reasoning that I have not seen in her in 3 years. Also, both my mother and husband have had a drastic decline in the severity of their tremors/shakes that they had. All 3 of us are showing a drop in our blood-pressures, to the point that we don't have to take our BP meds as often to avoid dropping our BP too low. After reading and studying more on the benefits of coconut oil, I plan to increase the amount that we use daily to get our bodies back to a state of good health.

    Coconut oil is a traditional food that has nourished children for thousands of years. It is beneficial to all children, whether diagnosed with ADHD or not. Since ADHD is an arbitrary diagnosis defined by behavior, it would be very difficult to construct any kind of study on coconut oil and ADHD.
  • Alzheimer’s Treatment

    Would coconut oil also work for children considered ADHD? If not is there a study to look into?

    I'm 77, active and in good health (I thought), but within the last several months I've noticed that I lose my train of thought very easily and I find myself searching for certain words which I should instinctively know. It has caused me some anxiety, given that both my maternal grandmother and my mother died with severe dementia, my mother's almost surely Alzheimers. I somehow came across Dr. Mary Newport and her experience with her husband and coconut oil and the very rewarding outcome of its use. Today I ordered her book and after listening to and watching the video mentioned in the comment below, I'm definitely going to order some of that oil. Thank you for this informative site.
