Alzheimer’s treatment —
Pay $250/month or $15/month
If you read my newsletter Real Cures, you may remember an Alzheimer’s treatment I told you about last year around this time. In that report, I gave some startling new evidence that you can help Alzheimer’s and many other brain dysfunction disorders by taking virgin coconut oil.
What was really dramatic about that report was the proof that foods can act in the same way that drugs do without any of the side effects.
Now, because of proofs like that, Big Pharma is getting into the food business. Only, as expected, this new food is going to be much more expensive than the real thing.

You may have already seen it advertised on TV. But if you haven’t, just wait. The new super food is called Axona. They are marketing Axona as “a prescription medical food intended for the clinical dietary management of the metabolic processes associated with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease.” Sounds fancy. And they charge you a fancy price for it. It runs about $250 per month. And, according to the initial studies, it works every bit as well as virgin coconut oil.
Coconut oil works because it contains special fats called medium chain triglycerides (MCLs). When you digest MCLs, your body converts them into ketones. Ketones are primary brain foods. Whereas the brain gets most of its energy from glucose (blood sugar), it can get even more energy from ketones. So virtually any metabolic brain disorder from seizures to Alzheimer’s may benefit from elevating the body’s ketone levels. And that’s exactly what Axona does.
Axona contains no drug. It consists entirely of the same medium chain triglycerides found in coconut oil. So it works in the same way that coconut oil does. Now you don’t often hear me recommend Big Pharma products. But here’s one that I have absolutely no problem with — except for the price. All you need is few hundred bucks each month and you’re in business with Axona.
Of course, you can go out to your local health food store and buy some virgin coconut oil for about 10 cents on the dollar compared to Axona. Of course, insurance won’t cover the store-bought oil. But it’s still less than your co-pay. Either way, you will be using food as a medicine.
Every now and then I meet someone who can’t stand the taste of coconut oil. So for them, I prescribe pure MCLs. You can buy pure MCLs online and also at most health food stores. They work just as well as coconut oil, but are a little more expensive.
