According to Dr Mary Newport Alzheimer's is a type of diabetes of the brain. A high consumption of refined carbohydrates and simple sugars stress the hormone insulin leading to insulin resistance. Since the brain uses large quantities of glucose for fuel the cells in the brain begin to die off eventually leading to Alzheimer's disease. Coconut oil contains healthy fats and MCTs (Medium Chain Triglycerides). The by products of MCTs are ketones, these ketones are used for fueling the brain. MCTs have also been proven to help dementia and brain disorders. Adding coconut oil daily to one's diet is a great way to get your healthy fats and keep the brain supported!
