65 patients suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, mild to moderate, were engaged in a clinical trial carried out by the Institute USF Health Byrd Alzheimer order to measure the effects of coconut oil on disease, on the one hand, and the effects of the placebo on the other side ..
the brain occupies only 2% of the body mass and contains 25% of the total amount of cholesterol in the body plays an important role in the operation and formation of synapses in the brain.
is required cholesterol in all parts of the brain due to its antioxidant effects. Moreover, it acts as a structural scaffold for the neural network and which also serves as an electrical insulator (so that can prevent leakage of ions). It is used in synaptic delivery sheath and all membranes.
The brain suffering from Alzheimer’s disease has difficult time metabolizing glucose and that is why sometimes the lack of cholesterol can occur.
One study examined the effects of statin, a drug that lowers cholesterol in patients with Alzheimer’s disease.
Patients had their statin use stopped for six weeks and then after those six weeks, are given this new drug. The effects were fascinating because in the period of these six weeks without statins, brain function of patients is constantly being improved.
However, after patients began using the drug again, his brain functions became even worse.
Dr. Mary Newport, whose husband was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease at the age of 51, her husband began to 4 teaspoons of coconut oil every day.
She was surprised by the effects of coconut oil because her husband began reading again, his communication skills were improving, she could walk normally again, could tie his shoes, as it did in the past and best of all: his memory improved.
Mary said not all dementia or Alzheimer’s patients should expect the same results from coconut oil, because not all people react the same. In fact, coconut oil works best if patients administered in the early stages of the disease.
Coconut oil is rich in energy ketone acts as a substitute for energy in the brain. This energy can be obtained by following a diet rich in fats. Pharmaceutical companies are working on a drug that will provide energy to the brain called ketone.
However, whatever you do, you should not follow low-fat diets and the use of excessive pharmaceutical drugs as they only contribute to Alzheimer’s disease and will not do you any good .
Today, all scientists only confirm the fact that there is no drug that can treat or prevent dementia. But they feel to share the information in this article with people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease free. At least it will let them know about the benefits of coconut oil when it comes to deal with this disease.
