Advice & Tips: After taking this for just over two years I am pretty amazed at what it has done for me. I did not start taking it until a year after my diagnosis. My progression has slowed dramatically. And, I still have no evidence of the disease affecting my breathing, my eating, and my swallowing. Additionally, I have actually been able to put on weight. I've been told that that is absolutely remarkable.
Cost: < $25 monthly
