[Alert] These Dementia Drugs Make Brain Drain WORSE!
If you’ve got Alzheimer’s – or any kind of memory issue, for that matter – most docs are practically GUARANTEED to send you away with an Rx in your pocket and a price tag on your mind.
It’s unfortunate… but frankly, that’s all they know how to do!
Mainstream docs are woefully under-educated when it comes to anything involving brain drain, “senior moments,” or all-out memory loss, but instead of ADMITTING that they don’t know how to help you, they’ll slap down a prescription and call it a day.
It’s fast, easy, and they don’t have to waste a moment actually THINKING about anything. To them, it’s practically perfect.
But here’s the thing…
Not only do those drugs NOT WORK, but new research has just revealed that some of these meds… experimental drugs meant to stop or slow Alzheimer’s symptoms… may make your memory loss EVEN WORSE!
According to two articles published in The New England Journal of Medicine this month, drugmaker Merck’s up-and-coming Alzheimer’s drug verubecestat is a complete and total FLOP.
In the articles, a study and an accompanying editorial, researchers explain that before their years-long clinical trial was CANCELLED for futility, they set out to test verubecestat’s ability to inhibit BACE1, an enzyme thought to encourage amyloid plague buildup in the brain.
Now, as you probably know, those beta-amyloid plaques have become a hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease… so it makes sense that limiting their creation could potentially fight the disease…
Only, verubecestat DIDN’T DO MUCH OF ANYTHING!
Per the study, after 104 weeks – two years – of treatment with the drug (daily doses of 12 or 40 mg) or a placebo, members of the drug group displayed no improvement in cognition.
In fact, they actually scored WORSE on a dementia rating scale!
For a disease as serious, debilitating, and scary as Alzheimer’s… that’s just unacceptable.
It’s outright DESCPICABLE!
Plus, compared to the placebo group, people taking verubecestat experienced MORE adverse reactions – including rash, hives, sleep disturbances, and changes in hair color.
And other studies of similar BACE inhibitors — atabecestat and lanabecestat – revealed the same thing: “unwanted declines in cognition.”
Now, if you’re not shocked by that, you should be… because the whole point behind these studies was that drugmakers want to SELL these crackpot meds to you and your loved ones!
Fortunately, none of them have made it to market – and in some cases, they never will. But that doesn’t mean you’re in the clear.
Tons of ineffective dementia and Alzheimer’s drugs HAVE gotten that far, and despite side effects like bruising, fatigue, nausea, and insomnia, docs pass them out to patients every day…
But YOU don’t need them.
Natural substances like curcumin (from the spice turmeric) and gingko biloba have repeatedly been shown to safely improve cognition and boost your brain, helping you keep your memories intact and your mind sharp – without the side effects of a mainstream med.
Look for them online or at your local vitamin shop from a maker you trust.
