Senior Couple Being Served Meal By Carer

Health Impact News

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 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.

Spanish Study Sees Improvement in Alzheimer’s Disease Using Coconut Oil

The Spanish clinical trial involved following Alzheimer’s patients of varying ages and genders with and without diabetes diagnoses to determine if coconut oil consumption had any effect on reducing their different levels of Alzheimer’s cognitive dysfunction.

They used cognitive testing on both control and intervention groups before and after the clinical trial to determine changes. The intervention group was fed 40 ml of coconut oil daily, which comes to about 2.7 tablespoons.

The researchers noted among the intervention group fed coconut oil:

a statistically significant increase in test score … and therefore an improvement in cognitive status, improving especially women’s, those without diabetes mellitus type II, and severe patients.

The Spanish researchers concluded:

this study, although preliminary, demonstrated the positive influence of coconut oil at the cognitive level of patients with Alzheimer’s, this improvement being dependent on sex, presence or absence of diabetes and degree of dementia.

Alzheimer’s Drugs a Huge Failure

Seniors diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease represent a huge market for pharmaceutical companies, as Alzheimer’s disease is increasing rapidly, affecting many millions of seniors. Pharmaceutical companies are anxious to tap into this market, and several pharmaceutical companies are currently trying to develop an Alzheimer’s vaccine.

In the history of drug marketing, the single most successful drug to ever hit the market was a drug targeted at seniors: Lipitor, the statin drug designed to lower cholesterol levels.

Lipitor has since had its patent expire, allowing cheaper statin generics to come into the market. But during its strongest years in sales, Lipitor almost outsold all other pharmaceutical drugs combined, making it the most profitable drug in history.

Today, about one out of every four Americans over the age of 55 is taking a statin drug. So this age group is a very lucrative market for the pharmaceutical companies, who would desperately like to have a successful Alzheimer’s drug or vaccine be approved for sale.
