My mother has Alzheimer's disease so her memory is very bad. About two months ago I added coconut oil pills to her medication regimen on the advice of her doctor. I give her four pills a day (two in the morning and two in the evening). They are large but I can get her to take them with crackers to follow. In the last couple of weeks, We've suddenly started seeing an improvement in her memory. Last week, She spoke on the phone to a friend who hadn't heard from her in a while and she was able to follow the conversation and actually asked questions. Later, she remembered talking to her friend and most of the conversation. since then, I've made a point of paying closer attention and must say that she has improved. The only thing I wish is that they would make the pills smaller so they would be easier for her to swallow. I would be willing to give her more pills each day if they were smaller.
