Coconut oil - for Alzheimers, Parkinsons, Schizophrenia and other brain issues - archive

January 01, 2012 11:24AM
Hi Everyone,

This short article was in our local health food store's monthly newsletter. I cut it out and intend to try it for my new year's resolution since I can use all the brain power I can get.

"Take the 35 day MCT Challenge"

"Interested in seeing if adding MCT's to your diet from coconut might make a difference for you or a loved one? Add 2 to 3 tablespoons of coconut oil to your diet daily for 35 days and see the difference for yourself. Notice your ability to do puzzles, remember names and recall words. You can use coconut milk as well [**not if you're on the PWFD], just remember that about a third of a cup of full-fat coconut milk supplies the same amount of MCTs as one tablespoon of the oil. You may want to consider working your way up slowly and spreading your servings out with meals since too much, too fast can cause a sense of fullness and may cause diarrhea for some. There are plenty of easy and delicious ways to add coconut and its MCTs into your diet. Coconut has been used as a staple food in many parts of the world and its possible uses are nearly endless. You can saute your eggs, meat or veggies in coconut oil, use coconut oil as a replacement for other oils in salad dressings and sauces or any place you might normally use butter. Full-fat coconut milk also supplies high amounts of MCTs and makes a wonderful milk replacement. Pour some in your smoothie or make a 'creamy' soup or sauce with it. There are also tons of coconut products flooding the market. While these can be great quick sources of MCTs, be sure to read the labels. Look for products that use full-fat coconut milk and are not highly processed or high in sugars. The goal is to get about 35 grams of fat from coconut daily. For those of you not inclined to make a fuss over your eating, it doesn't have to be complex, just add coconut oil to any warm liquid and drink it up."

I'm going to try adding the coconut oil to my warm cereal in the mornings. Also in cookies.

Has anyone used coconut oil extensively? What have been the results for you?

Best wishes,
Jan
