AlzCare is advertised with a strong benefit claim: that it can help treat Alzheimer’s. However, it is known that no cure has been yet discovered for the disease, and that medication can only prevent or slow down its progression once it sets in.
Also, the formula is based on Ayurvedic medicine principles and no empirical or scientific evidence is brought to support the claims. The main ingredients are herbs tested to various extents, but which are associated to side effects or to certain precautions (especially for pregnant and nursing women). The manufacturer mentions no side effects for the blend; therefore, we strongly recommend you seek specialized advice prior to beginning treatment.
