Memory Issues Can Predict Alzheimer’s Disease Years Before –
What Are The Most Compelling Natural Solutions?
By Michael Mooney Updated September 21, 2018
Memory issues can be an early sign of senile dementia or early Alzheimer’s disease. Simple memory issues can start 10 to 30 years before the full symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease manifest. An easily-accessed dietary supplement and a tasty food treat may be able to stave off age-related memory loss and even reverse Alzheimer’s Disease and the memory loss it brings.
Before we get into what appear to be the two most effective natural solutions that you can take, also consider regular exercise and cleaning up your diet, which will be detailed for you by clicking on Dr. Bredesen’s link at the end of this article.
1. Organic Virgin or Extra Virgin Coconut Oil – Everyone over 30 years of age should consider taking a tablespoon or two of organic virgin or extra virgin coconut oil every day to reduce the potential to experience Alzheimer’s Disease and preserve memory as we age. Actually, everyone, from children to the oldest people should consume coconut oil regularly for its many health benefits, including its anti-microbial effects against such health concerns as foot fungus and nasal inflammation (sinusitis).
Make sure that what you buy and consume is an organic virgin or extra virgin coconut oil because coconuts are otherwise a heavily pesticide-sprayed crop and exposure to pesticides increases the potential for Alzheimer’s all by itself.
The second most important consideration when buying oils is that they are virgin or, better yet, extra virgin.
Coconut oil can also be added to foods. Or just cook with it. I add it to almost all the dishes that I cook or just have a tablespoon a day with a bit of manuka honey. The best-selling organic extra-virgin coconut oil on Amazon is made by VIVA, as shown on the left. (To reiterate if you buy something by clicking a link on this site it costs you no more, but we get a small commission from Amazon. Small amounts added up help us continue to serve you with solid science-based information. To underline, we only feature products that we take or would take ourselves.)
And because coconut oil fats are mostly medium chain fats, the fats burn for energy, while not storing as fat.
(Fat alone doesn’t make us fat. Fat accumulates as fat when we eat carbs, too. (Carbs increase insulin, the most potent “storage” hormone in the body, which stores carb energy via lipogenesis, the generation of new lipids stored in fat cells while fat in the bloodstream as cholesterol increases, too.)
Coconut Oil and The Heart-Warming Story of Dr. Mary Newport and Her Husband
The startlingly hopeful reality about this simple natural food is seen in these links – http://blog.easy-immune-health.com/brain-health-neurologic/alzheimers-treatment-coconut-oil/ and an article at http://www.naturalnews.com/032727_coconut_oil_Alzheimers.html by Dr. Carolyn Dean that also points at a book by Dr. Bruce Fife, called Stop Alzheimer’s Now!
Another book, Alzheimer’s Disease: What If There Was a Cure? by Dr. Mary Newport focuses only on the use of coconut oil, detailing the biochemical reasons it addresses Alzheimer’s, presenting a YOUTUBE video about it, too, along with case studies.
Dr. Newport warms the heart by showing the success that she has had with her husband’s Alzheimer’s by giving him daily doses of coconut oil.
Dr. Newport’s personal experience reversing her husband’s Alzheimer’s has made her passionate about sharing the information that she has struggled to find so that others can help their loved ones that are suffering from Alzheimer’s.
Dr. Newport has also published a medical journal study to underline the value of coconut oil and reach the medical community.
Just Be Sure to Ask Your Doctor!?
I suggest that you consider asking your doctor and get ready for a dismissal of your interest in this or the rare doctor that is open to natural tools. Most doctors won’t be “friendly” or knowledgeable about this inexpensive natural therapy. It does nothing for conventional medicine’s pocketbooks, so they tend to want it to “go away.” Or Big Pharma creates and funds fraudulent studies that show that coconut oil is actually harmful. Not that all doctors are this way – some are quite well-meaning. A problem is most doctors “toe-the-line” and will prescribe things like statin drugs because they must to remain “in the club” so that they can continue making a living.
But the profit-seekers in conventional medicine want patentable expensive drugs (that can always cause side-effects,) rather than safe natural foods that also happen to act as medicines.
Also compelling is a YOUTUBE video about an 85-year old man that started experiencing a reversal of dementia in just 35 days. This, too, is a “must-watch” video, as the son of the man talks about not only his father but his own experience with coconut oil. You can view it at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yxR24JMAE0c
My sister reported to me that since she has been taking coconut oil regularly her memory has become noticeably better.
Sounds like we all may perhaps benefit from some daily coconut oil!
So what dose of coconut oil might help? Doses suggested have ranged from one to four tablespoons a day to address Alzheimer’s.
Coconut oil has a multiplicity of other health benefits, including anti-infective properties, cardioprotective effects, skin, and hair health support and as an efficient energy source because of the high medium chain triglyceride content, which means it will mostly be burned for energy, rather than be stored as fat.
Because Alzheimer’s can start many years before it becomes obvious that one has the disease, getting some daily intake of this potential Alzheimer’s treatment is a good idea for the best long-term health.
(Note that for some people, dosing of about three tablespoons a day or more can cause a laxative effect.)
2. Niacinamide – A mouse study showed that high-dose niacinamide (the form of vitamin B3 that does not cause a warm skin flush or lower cholesterol) completely reversed the mouse version of Alzheimer’s disease, including reversing memory loss.
The study results were so good that the researchers used the word “cured.” Scientists are very careful about using the word “cured.”
The study was so exciting that the Alzheimer’s Association and UC Irvine started a human study that is using 1,500 mg of a special pharmaceutical-grade sustained-release niacinamide called Enduramide, taken twice a day, for a total of 3,000 mg a day. Niacinamide only lasts in the bloodstream for about 90 minutes, so using a pharmaceutical-grade sustained-release product that lasts six-to-seven hours in the bloodstream is important!
Long-term nutritional medicinal expert, Dr. Jonathan Wright agrees that niacinamide can successfully address Alzheimer’s. To read what he said, click here.
I bought the Enduramide that is being used in the human study and am taking some as a preventive and sleep aid.
It’s very safe and has other worthwhile potential benefits, such as improving sleep quality, so well that it has been used to replace sleep medications, such as the benzodiazepine Klonopin.
That’s why I sometimes take 1,500 mg of sustained-release Enduramide tablets before bedtime.

At 65 years of age, Michael has been studying health and ageing for almost 50 years. After experiencing re-growth and darkening of his own hair, as confirmed by numerous friends, caused by experimentation with specific nutrients, he has also experienced a tremendous reduction in facial wrinkles because of the use of various nutritional supplements, biological peptides, botanicals and a specific whole foods diet. Michael further experienced tremendous improvements in his long-term and short-term memory with nootropics.
