Alzheimer’s Cure in a bottle? Part 3

Rate This

So far it appears that we only have Dr. Wurtman’s words to go on and more studies on diet and AD have to be done before making it sound like Souvenaid is the magic bullet for AD. These studies need to be compared to other similar diet supplements on the market. The studies have to be blinded with Dr. Wurtman being not part of the study. Until objective randomized studies are done, this appears to be just another health supplement study looking for a disease it can cure.

One should note that the “medical drink” did not improve any other memory test or cognition. The only improvement was in verbal recall.

Final note: There have been many studies which have looked at effects of vitamins and omega 3 fatty acid on AD and most have shown no benefits. Moreover, mild AD patients generally do not require any treatment in the first place because they are still capable of function. Moreover, there is not a single study which has shown that AD is due to a deficiency of any of these chemicals.

Generally when doctors mix research with business, there is always a certain bias and results are usually hyped up to be more positive than what they appear. It appears that this antidote for AD appears to me more geared towards making money rather than helping patients.

The study is published in the journal Alzheimer's & Dementia.
