Advice & Tips: Waiting for Dukes summary of trials. Monitored many people and see no solid help. Still no cure, would have no problem spending the money if I had seen even a 10% positive sign. Have faith that better things are coming. God Bless P.S. It is nutritional but can't see making someone else rich off from such little evidence of help. You would think the distributor would give us a break if it was in fact so good for ALS, don't like guessing...
