More Research Published Supporting Coconut Oil’s Claim to Heal Alzheimer’s Disease

Last month (May, 2018) I wrote about a new study published in Iran that looked at the "neuroprotective effects" effects of virgin coconut oil for Alzheimer's patients. The title of the study is Virgin coconut oil (VCO) by normalizing NLRP3 inflammasome showed potential neuroprotective effects in Amyloid-β induced toxicity and high-fat diet fed rat and was published in the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology. While we have been publishing reports of coconut oil reversing the symptoms of Alzheimer's Disease and other neurological diseases for several years now, we believe this was the first peer-reviewed study to actually look at some of the mechanisms of how coconut oil benefits Alzheimer's patients. Now, a second peer-reviewed study has been published here in 2018 looking at the mechanisms of how coconut oil positively affects Alzheimer's patients. Published in the journal, Neurochemical Research, researchers in Japan examined the effects of lauric acid, the most predominant medium chain fatty acid found in coconut oil, on activated microglia in mice. Coconut oil is nature's richest source of lauric acid at about 50% of its composition, and human breast milk comes in a distant second at around 6% lauric acid. The title of the study is Lauric Acid Alleviates Neuroinflammatory Responses by Activated Microglia: Involvement of the GPR40-Dependent Pathway.

Study: Is Canola Oil Consumption Linked to Alzheimer’s Disease?

Because of its lower cost, canola oil is ubiquitous in processed foods intended for the growing "health conscious" market. Now a recently published study is confirming the suspicions of those of us who refuse to use canola oil. Philadelphia Pennsylvania's Temple University conducted an animal study to determine the validity of canola oil's health claims. Their results were published this month, December, 2017, in the journal Scientific Reports. The study was titled “Effect of canola oil consumption on memory, synapse and neuropathology in the triple transgenic mouse model of Alzheimer’s disease.” Could canola oil contribute to the onset of Alzheimer’s Disease?

88 Year Old Woman Recovering from Alzheimer’s and Diabetes Using Coconut Oil

I brought my 88 year old mother out of 7 years of nursing home neglect/abuse on February 14, 2016. I've been studying the effects of coconut oil and Alzheimer's disease. She was taking 4 units Novolog insulin at meals and 10 units Lantas at night. After applying coconut oil all over her body, I noticed her sugars were continuing to lower without insulin shots. The first 2 days, I saturated her skin and added 1 teaspoon in protein shakes. Her sugars went from 300's to 140. My mother is diagnosed with stage 6 Alzheimer's. She is speaking better and I gave her a Bible story book to read me yesterday and she could read it through with exception of a few words. My mother could not do this one week ago or for the last two years. She is remembering people and things that have not been spoken of for years. I can now show her pictures and she can name people, even her children now. I'm thrilled!

Study: Coconut Oil Improves Cognitive Functioning in Alzheimer’s Patients

Health Impact News has been a leader in the alternative media publishing research and testimonials supporting the positive use of coconut oil with people suffering from Alzheimer's disease. These remarkable stories of families seeing dramatic improvement from Alzheimer's and dementia are documented at CoconutOil.com. In many cases, adding several spoonfuls of coconut oil a day to the diet of one suffering from Alzheimer's and dementia has resulted in memories returning, the ability to once again converse with friends and loved ones, etc. (Read the testimonials.) However, pharma-based physicians and groups have largely condemned the use of coconut oil, stating that all the evidence is "anecdotal," lacking peer-reviewed scientific research. Of course coconut oil is a natural food, with virtually no risk or side effects, and funding for research on a natural food is difficult to come by when no product can be patented as a result of the research, such as lucrative pharmaceutical drugs. As we have stated in the past, the lack of scientific research on coconut oil and Alzheimer's should not stop people from trying it. Some are taking notice and beginning to publish studies, however, so the claim that coconut oil improving Alzheimer's lacks scientific support may not be true much longer. A clinical trial in Spain was published this month (December 2015) studying the effects of coconut oil on Alzheimer's, and the results were very promising. Another study in Florida is in process and should be published in 2016.

84 Year Old Man Beginning to Lose His Mind Makes Full Recovery After Consuming Coconut Oil

He didn’t even want to have anything to do with the chickens or cats for about 5 days. He was getting really worried and was even beginning to think this was the end of his life, when we got him to the hospital he said that he wouldn’t be coming back out. I gave him 1 huge teaspoon full of coconut oil 3 different times in a very small cup with warm juice so that the coconut oil would melt, he drank the juice very willingly. At the hospital the doctors couldn’t find anything wrong with him. My sisters and I believe that the coconut oil helped him recover quickly. Something was going on in his brain, we don’t know what and the doctors didn’t know either. The great news is that it hasn’t happened again, my father feels strong and healthy at 85 years old.
