Coconut Oil May Relieve, Regress Dementia Symptoms

A study published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease titled, “Coconut Oil Attenuates the Effects of Amyloid-β on Cortical Neurons In Vitro.” adds to an accumulating body of anecdotal reports that coconut oil may alleviate and/or regress cognitive deficits associated with aging and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s.

Medical researchers from the Memorial University of Newfoundland, St. John’s, NL, Canada, investigated the effects of the oil supplementation directly on cortical neurons treated with amyloid-β (Aβ) peptide, the main component of certain deposits found in the brains of patients with Alzheimer’s disease believed to contribute to the disease.
