There have been some claims that coconut oil could be used as a treatment, or even a cure, for Alzheimer's disease. However, there is currently not enough experimental evidence to back up these claims.

The claim is based on the theory that the brain cells of people with Alzheimer's disease are unable to use glucose to produce energy properly, and so the nerve cells 'starve'.

Some believe coconut oil may act as an alternative energy source for the brain. However, there is not enough scientific evidence to know whether this is the case.

Yes you are right they are two sides to most things and it can all be a little confusing but sometimes you have to make a decision for yourself and I have come to the conclusion that I can see and feel positive results for myself and I also I feel people's bodies can respond differently too, what's good for one may not be good for someone else but I personally like to try things and come to my own decisions based on my own evidence!

You should take everything into consideration when forming your opinion and when possible, check things out for yourself, just not state as fact, things that have not been studied and proven to work, especially with something as serious as Alzheimer's.

I wasn't being aggressive or passive-aggressive, just stating what I consider an important point.

Thank you for saying that BlushingOrchid! :-) I was really starting to think that I just couldn't speak MY mind and my thoughts on certain topics unless I had hard facts to back them up lol

It certainly does Bessie many moons ago I used to buy Decleor night balm which was expensive but I can honestly say hand on heart that coconut oil works just as Well as a night balm :-)

PJ54.

This is the Health Category of the forum where accuracy is important when it comes to medical matters.

But I think we can all agree that Coconut oil does benefit the skin and hair..wink.png smile.png
