Description

The purpose of this study is to discover the effects of a nutritional supplement called RGM and placebo on patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). Research has suggested that damage from cell waste may contribute to the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. RGM is an oral supplement made of the substances resveratrol glucose and malate. In previous studies, this mixture was found to possibly improve test scores in patients with AD. However, RGM has not been proven to affect the progression of Alzheimer’s Disease and is still considered an experimental treatment for AD.
