    Medium Chain Triglycerides are metabolized into ketones regardless of the blood sugar level, and coconut oil is full of MCTs. There's a medical doctor named Mary Newport who claims to have substantially palliated her husband's Alzheimer's Disease by substituting coconut oil for all the other fats in his diet, presumably because the ketones from MCT were able to supply neuronal energy in spite of cerebral insulin resistance. Yet another reason to eat coconut oil - I definitely experience a more stable mood and energy when there's plenty of it in my diet.
