Ran across another interesting article in Australian Food News concerning the effectiveness of coconut oil in treating the symptoms of ALZ. The article references an Oxford study asserting the notion that coconut oil increases ketones, ultimately improving cognition in some individuals suffering from Alzheimer’s.   While the effects are temporary, it is certainly something worth exploring, particularly for those in the early stages.

If you have any creative ideas on how to incorporate coconut oil into your diet, I’d love to hear them! I use it in cooking, but am in search of other alternatives. I’ve found that mixing it in with oatmeal works both consistency and taste-wise, as does using it as a spread on toast. I’ve also added it to smoothies (though the fact that it hardens when it hits the cold liquid makes this less than optimal).

Other ideas?  Please share in a comment!
