Coconut Oil for Health
Not only is coconut oil a vital ingredient in Menrva’s Kiss: Shea Nerium Skin Creme, but it is an extremely important addition to any diet. There is a magical element in coconut oil, medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), that is also present in breast milk.
According to Bruce Fife, ND:
One such food is so powerful that I have seen it clear up flu symptoms almost overnight, stop bladder infections, remove precancerous skin lesions, bring quick relief from Crohn’s disease, heal chronic psoriasis, and improve symptoms associated with hypoglycemia, diabetes, hypothyroidism, and chronic fatigue, among others. Medical researchers are now using it in the fight against AIDS.

Coconut Oil for Alzheimers
The MCTs in coconut oil have been shown to help Alzheimer patients. Sometimes there is improvement shortly after consuming two to three tablespoons of coconut oil.
According to an article written by Brian Shilhavy:
Another major advantage the saturated fat of coconut oil provides is its ability to provide the brain with an alternate source of energy in ketones. Ketones are high energy fuels that nourish the brain. Our body can produce ketones from stored fat while fasting or in starvation, but they can also be produced by converting medium chain fatty acids in certain foods. Coconut oil is nature’s richest source of these medium chain triglycerides (MCTs). A study done in 2004 took MCTs from coconut oil and put them into a drink that was given to Alzheimer’s patients while a control group took a placebo.5 They observed significant increases in levels of the ketone body beta-hydroxybutyrate (beta-OHB) 90 minutes after treatment when cognitive tests were administered. Higher ketone values were associated with greater improvement in paragraph recall with MCT treatment relative to placebo across all subjects.
