In recent months, I’ve been hearing a lot about the health benefits of coconut oil, and specifically its effect on the brain.  I must say, I wrote it off as just another fad, but after watching this video and looking at some other case studies found on the internet, I’m intrigued.

It may be too late for my mom to realize significant results, but I live in fear every single day that my turn is coming.  If there are no harmful effects, I’m certainly not opposed to giving it a try.  In addition to improving brain function, many people have also noted positive changes in LDL/HDL ratios and a decline in triglyceride levels.  Experts even suggest it functions as a natural antibiotic.

For anyone interested in reading more about Dr. Mary Newport, check out her blog or look for her 2011 book, Alzheimer’s Disease: What If There Was a Cure?
