Coconut Oil, Ketones and Alzheimer's

New animal studies with ketones and coconut oil

I have learned of two new studies that have received funding.

One is at University of Maryland, conducted by Dr. Beverly Teter, in which she will look at whether coconut oil improves the outcome for "Alzheimer" mice. The second is a study of ketones at Univesity of South Florida, Byrd Alzheimer Institute.

They will be looking at ketogenic diet, ketone ester, caloric deprivation and their effect on abnormal amyloid and tau production compared to the "normal" diet in mice.

If these studies have the outcome we hope for, this may spur further human research.
