Tonawanda News — With many of the new trial drugs failing miserably, maybe the focus should now be on prevention — but for those already suffering from AD, there is more promise is using coconut oil than any other drug to date.
To incorporate coconut oil into your life, make sure you purchase “virgin” coconut oil. Because it is a saturated fat, it will be in solid form. Most local grocery stores sell it in the organic or healthy foods sections.
To incorporate coconut oil into your diet, I recommend adding it to smoothies, oatmeal, and you can even make salad dressing with it. It is a great choice for to sautéing or frying, as it has a high heat tolerance, unlike olive oil.
Some individuals use it as an alternative to butter and some just take it by the spoonful. Try adding it to your coffee or tea. The goal, especially for those who suffer from AD is at least two tablespoons per day.
You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by incorporating this healthy option into your daily life.
