Hi All,

 

I have just read and watched the you tube interview (attached below) on this in the states .—A new study by University of Miami researchers found an Aloe polymannose multinutrient complex (APMC) improved cognitive and immune function of Alzheimer's disease patients. The study, "The Effect of an Aloe Polymannose Multinutrient Complex on Cognitive and Immune Functioning in Alzheimer’s Disease," was published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease in January 2013 (J Alzheimers Dis. 2013;33(2):393-406.).

 

Does anyone know if this product works?  I live in the UK so would need to have it shipped over here.  Many thanks

Thanks for posting.

I'd never heard of this supplement before, but based on some online research, here's what I found:

PROS:

- It significantly helped (but didn't cure) some people with Alzheimer's.

 

CONS:

- The product is expensive to try.  (At amazon.com, $125 for New Eden APMC:  Aloe Polymannose MultiNutrient Complex.)
- The study was small (34 people).

-  Cognitive function improved in less than half the participants (46%).  (So, if that's true, there's a greater than 50% chance that it won't help cognitive function.)

 

Still, who knows?  It does seem to help some people.

 

If anyone decides to try it, please report back here about whether it helped or not. 

 

Thanks again.

Yes if anyone knows anyone who has tried this with positive results would be grateful to hear, I contacted the company but said they couldn't give me contact details of anyone who had tried this due to laws in the us, which is fair enough but just an email address would be sufficient anyone of the 46% who improved
