    coconut oil

    Recently, several people talked about coconut oil being helpful for people with Alzheimer's. One of my friends says it has helped her husband, but it's rather expensive. Does anyone remember if there is a source that sells it for less?

    I bought LouAna at Wal-Mart. I didn't look for any other source. You can search online for places and prices.

    My husband is willing to try the oil, but how do you get 4 tablespoons a day into a diet? I haven't found an answer to that yet.

    Put it in oatmeal at breakfast, make a salad dressing with it. I read that you need the pure coconut oil, not one that has been purified, pasterized. Try a google search on it.

    Raw coconut oil. Blend into a smoothie. It's really tasty. Also nice to rub into your skin. Here's a smoothie I make for my DH and myself:

    2 cups unsweetened almond milk
    1 banana
    handful or two of frozen strawberries
    1 - 2 tablespoons coconut oil
    tablespoon raw cacao powder (raw cacao powder, not the kind you use for baking) this is optional
    little pinch of sea salt
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla
    1 teaspoon raw honey

    blend and enjoy :-)
    another option is to blend in a big handful of baby spinach, you won't taste it in the smoothie but you get a good nutritional boost, adding frozen blueberries turns it purple so you don't see the green so much.

    The biggest risk is the one not taken

    I have not seen where there is any scientific evidence that this works. Not sure I would trust medical news from CBN. It seems so far it is subjective evidence only. ("I gave it to my husband and he seems better". ) Quite a bit different from a double-blind study.

    But I suppose it couldn't hurt. I hate to see people getting false hopes though.
