MCT’s In Coconut Oil Treat Alzheimer’s and Boost Cognition In One Dose
by Arjun Walia
Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) are the primary type of fat found in coconut oil. MCT’s have been found to boost cognitive performance in older adults suffering from memory disorders like Alzheimer’s.
What’s most astonishing about this fact is that brain function is boosted immediately after one dose of 40 ml.
A study published in the journal Neurobiology of Aging discovered that the administration MCT’s, the primary type of fat found within coconut oil, almost immediately improved cognitive function(1)(2).
Ketone bodies provide a much-needed alternative fuel for the brain that can recharge metabolic processes within the brain, resulting in almost immediate improvement in cognitive function. Ketone bodies are increased from MCT administration (1)(2). MCT’s are also much easier to absorb than a majority of the dietary fats we consume. Coconut oil is a great source for triglycerides, it contains approximately 2/3rds MCTs by volume.
It seems that nature provides everything we need to cure and/or treat any type of ailment. Our medical industry over emphasizes the use of medication, vaccines and more without ever considering the effectiveness of alternative, natural healthy treatments that have been proven effective time and time again.
