Coconut and 2 bottles of coconut oil

MCT oil generates ketones, which can help dementia. Coconut oil is rich in MCT oil. What are healthier food sources? How much is a good daily amount to get the maximum benefit?

Check out the table, links and comments below the video for a better understanding of coconut oil's benefits for people with dementia.

Use the following table to make practical conversions:

The following is not medical advice. Be sure to consult your physician before trying this yourself.
  1. You may start with one teaspoon of coconut oil in each meal.
  2. If available, use a mixture of 1/2 coconut oil and 1/2 MCT oil.
  3. Increase the amount gradually, protecting against side effects.
  4. Try to get as much as 3 tablespoons per meal and two tablespoons at bedtime.

  1. I have MCI and when I started using Coconut oil & MCT I started gaining weight. It freaked me out and I stopped. At one point in my life I had lost about 100 lbs and so I am very worried about gaining weight. I have been a Vegan for 5 or 6 years and am very aware of what I eat. I make sure to get enough protein everyday and for the first time since I lost the weight, I do not have to worry as much about my weight, but to consume that much Coconut oil per day, I have to eat less or omit other very healthy foods.I try to sneak a Tablespoon in some days, but if I try to consume the recommended amount, I start gaining weight (I also exercise regularly).

  2. I wanted to add that I am female (my husband must have set up FB in his name). My name is Pat and I am 66 years old.
