There is so much information being published right now about the positive effects of coconut oil and Alzheimer’s sufferers. This is an area that I am still learning about, but I am sharing the information I find with as many people as possible. I don't personally know anyone who is suffering with Alzheimer’s, but many of you do and this information might be highly beneficial. If you know someone who is, or may be suffering, with Alzheimer’s or dementia, this information might be worth sharing with them or their caregivers.
I wanted to compile a list of the latest news on the subject and give you a jumping off point in case you wanted to research further. If you have any resources you'd like to add, please leave them in the comments below. Let's get the word out about this and see if we can make people's lives happier and healthier. You're not going to see a lot of this info in mainstream media, however, there is some happening, which is incredibly promising. There are some medical doctors who are starting to stand up and take notice, so we might be right on the cusp of some change. Let's keep our fingers and toes crossed!

There seems to be new information coming online about this every single day. I will try to share new info that I find, but please send this post and these resources to anyone you think could benefit from the information. If nothing else, we all need to up our doses of daily coconut oil, just to help our brains now. For more information on coconut oil, check out two of my posts on the subject:
52 Uses for Coconut Oil – The Simple, The Strange, and The Downright Odd! (make sure you check out the comments on this post. There are WAY more than 52 uses for coconut oil, thanks to readers who have left their ideas and experiences!)
For more information on coconut oil and health, as well as some new information on Alzheimer’s, I recommend the Virgin Coconut Oil book from Tropical Traditions. They just released a new edition of this book for 2012 and it includes an entire chapter on Alzheimer’s. In addition to the new Alzheimer’s information, the book includes specific info on coconut oil and various illnesses and ailments, stories from real people, recipes, and more. If you're a new customer of Tropical Traditions, then you can receive this book for free with your first order, by placing your order through this link (you'll get the free book and I'll get a discount coupon for referring you! Thanks!). Even if you're not a new customer, I still recommend getting this updated book. A lot has changed over the last few years and the information in this book is invaluable in my opinion. It also makes a great gift for someone, so if you've got any birthdays or special occasions coming up, consider this book as a gift!
