Ketones: The YouTube Interviews

There is now available on www.YouTube.com a six part series of interviews about ketones, coconut oil and MCT oil and the potential benefits for people with Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and other neurodegenerative diseases. The primary purpose of making these videos is to increase awareness of the need for funding for large scale production of the ketone ester made by Dr. Richard Veech at the NIH. My secondary goal is to let people know that the medium chain triglycerides in coconut oil and MCT oil can produce circulating ketones that can act as an alternative fuel for brain and other cells that are insulin resistant and cannot use glucose as a fuel; the levels are considerably lower than those that can be achieved with Dr. Veech's ketone ester, however, some improvement or stabilization of disease may still be possible with the oils.
