Article: What if there was a cure for Alzheimer’s Disease and no one knew?
- In Alzheimer’s disease, the neurons in certain areas of the brain are unable to take in glucose due to insulin resistance and slowly die off. If these cells had access to ketone bodies, they could potentially stay alive and continue to function.
- MCT oil is digested differently by the body than other fats. Instead of storing all MCTs as fat, the liver converts them directly to ketone bodies, which are then available for use as energy.
