Indications of Alzheimer's Disease is Evident 20 Years Before Dementia
Biochemical signs of Alzheimer's Disease are reflected by the brain's limited capacity to metabolize glucose occur 20 years prior to the memory and cognitive defects we associate with the clinical disease. A shortage of ATP (energy) in the brain eventually leads to an electrical brown out manifested by recent memory loss and cognitive defects . We can resuscitate this mitochondrial energy defect early in the course of the brown out by offering the brain another energy source in the form of medium chain triglycerides that are found in coconut oil. We can further support energy production by adding extra niacinamide, choline to support acetylcholine production, curcumin to reduce inflammation, and vitamin B12, which the body needs to make energy and is often low in the elderly.
