Multiple Sclerosis and Mental “Fog”
Having seen the article concerning Coconut Oil and Alzheimer’s, the brain nutrition aspect motivated me to try it for the “fogginess.” Soon after, I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS).
I started adding about 2 teaspoons of coconut oil to my diet each morning. It was taken cold. The product is a cold-pressed virgin oil, so it’s pure and unaltered. After about three months, I felt completely normal, and have done ever since.
When it comes to your brain especially, coconut oil acts more like a carbohydrate than a fat. Coconut oil, or Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) to be specific, goes straight to your liver to be converted into “ketones.” Your liver then quickly releases the ketones to be delivered to your brain to be used as fuel.
Ketones derived from coconut oil seem to be the more desired source of brain food in patients afflicted with Alzheimer’s and diabetes.
