My physician said that a highly respected researcher has found through a study, where, one group was given Metanx & the other a placebo. The study stated that those lucky enough to received the Metanx, the volume loss of brain was greatly reduced. Are there other studies being done to slow down the progressive nature of Alzheimer's or a possible prevention or treatment for this horrible disease. Thank you so much.

Hello, BD! How are you?

I've not found anything on that study.

However yes, there is lots of research being done and many possible breakthroughs, including full memory restoration, if further testing validates the findings, but it will be several years before any of it becomes mainstream.

As to the Metanx, since it is just a nutritional supplement as classified by the FDA, while I can't say whether to not it will help, it certainly shouldn't cause any harm, so there's not much risk in trying it, if your doctor has prescribed it.

The only typical side effect that it's known to cause is some nausea, due to its potency.

Is there anything else I can help with?
