In Alzheimer’s the cells of the brain are unable to uptake glucose properly. In short, the brain itself is starving for nutrients.
The medium-chain fatty acids, which are found in coconut oil, are able to partially convert to ketones which the brain can upload and use as an alternative fuel.
This is helpful not just for Alzheimer’s but for other neuro-degenerative diseases as well, such as:
>Lou Gehrig’s Disease
