From the St. Petersburg Times:
After two weeks of taking coconut oil, Steve Newport’s results in an early onset Alzheimer’s test gradually improved says his wife, Dr. Mary Newport. Before treatment, Steve could barely remember how to draw a clock. Two weeks after adding coconut oil to his diet, his drawing improved. After 37 days, Steve’s drawing gained even more clarity. [The three drawings are shown in a photo.] The oil seemed to “lift the fog,” his wife says.
. . .
He began taking coconut oil every day, and by the fifth day, there was a tremendous improvement.
The wife took her husband’s treatment into her own hands, just as I tried to improve my sleep myself — it was self-experimentation in that sense.
This is related to my omega-3 research in that it is another example of a fat having highly beneficial brain effects.
