‘MCT oil helps seniors with Alzheimer’s disease’

Use of medium chain triglyceride (MCT) oil in subjects with Alzheimer’s disease: A randomized, double‐blind, placebo‐controlled, crossover study, with an open‐label extension

  • Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease, currently with no effective therapy.
  • The brain is an obligate glucose user. AD is associated with impaired cerebral glucose metabolism.
  • Ketones are an alternative source of cerebral fuel.
  • Medium chain triglyceride oil (MCT) is a nutritional source of ketones.
  • This study suggests consistent MCT oil intake stabilizes cognition in AD subjects, especially in mild to moderate disease.

  • This is the longest duration MCT AD study to date. Eighty percent had stabilization or improvement in cognition, and better response with 9‐month continual MCT oil.
