Are MCT Oil & Coconut Oil Dangerous for Dementia?

food, coconut, fruit
Many nutritionists and doctors recommend MCT oil and coconut oil for people with dementia, especially in the early stages. Some say they are dangerous. What are the facts? (Video)

MCT OIL and COCONUT OIL are routinely called a “superfood”, a “healthy fat” and a staple for a keto diet. They are found in supermarkets and health food stores, but according to the news coconut oil might not be as healthy. In this video Dr. Sten Ekberg, an Olympic decathlete and holistic doctor, responds to a report from Canadian CBC News that refers to a study on MCT oil and then attempts to discredit coconut oil on the sole basis that it contains saturated fats.

It is a place where we separate out the wheat from the chaffe, the important articles & videos from each week’s river of news. With a new post on Alzheimer’s or dementia appearing on the internet every 7 minutes, the site’s focus on the best information has been a help to many over the past 15 years. Thanks to our many subscribers for your supportive feedback.

The site is dedicated to all those preserving the dignity of the community of people living with dementia.
