Oxford University researchers have discovered that coconut oil may help people with Alzheimer’s regain their memory.
Researchers say coconut oil contains unique fats known as ketones, which are thought to nourish the brain.
The results are only temporary, but researchers say the short term effects for dementia patients are astounding.
Dr Peter Clifton, a nutritional scientist, says Alzheimer’s sufferers may ‘remember who they are, who you are, and actually hold a normal conversation’.
‘Suddenly you would get the old person you know back again, even if it is only temporary’.
The researchers say just thirty grams of the oil a day can be beneficial.
