The Coconut-Oil-Dementia Diet

Dr. Anderson advocates coconut oil for his nursing home’s dementia diet.

He explores 3 benefits:

  1. Coconut oil is rich in Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT). The liver quickly converts MCTs to ketones, providing a quick “backup fuel” to the brain. This can be helpful in dementia, where the brain often suffers from a lack of energy from its regular “fuel”, glucose.
  2. Coconut oil offers a low-carb solution to insulin resistance from diabetes. (Type-2 diabetes is common in seniors with dementia. In addition, Alzheimer’s is sometimes called Type-3 diabetes.)
  3. Dr. Anderson sees this improving the problems of:
    • Agitation
    • Behavior
    • Polypharmacology (Too many pills).
