I hear great things about this drug. That other ataxians use it and they can function A LOT better after a month. I’m going to take this while waiting for a certain treatment to be developed. Anyone heard anything about this?
I haven’t heard of this but during my research I have found this is a supplement that is an antioxidant so I’m confused on what it helps. What does it does it do to help us function better?
Its supposed to help you on a cellular level increase cellular health and improve ATP and all that good stuff. I just ordered it so i should be getting it soon. I will post results.
does someone take it here? thanks!
I am going to start taking it today.
Please let us know how and it it works!
Protandim is a dietary supplement. It’s said to ramp up your own naturally occurring free radical defences.
One of the ingredients is Turmeric. I took part in a recent study of this. Surprisingly, I think this helped give me pain relief. Overall, the study concluded that taking Turmeric cooked in food was more beneficial than taking in tablet form. But, I was told it wouldn’t change anything re ataxia.
Wow Beryl, that’s really interesting. I tried turmeric for arthritis pain for a while, and I didn’t think it did any good. But cooked in food … trouble is, I like Indian food but not every day. It has such a strong and distinctive flavour. TJ says that American yellow mustard is loaded with it, though. Who knew?
I’m about two weeks into taking protandim. I will see what happens after a month.
Its only been 2 weeks. I was told to wait a month. I will let you know the results.
Seenie, I like Tandoori Chicken and ChickenTikka but that’s as adventurous as I get😉
Personally, I really struggled cooking meals with Turmeric, I think it’s an acquired taste😉 I was required to add 2 teaspoonfuls to cooking every other day for 6wks😑
The group was split into three … Placebo - Turmeric Capsule - Turmeric Powder
Blood and urine samples were taken at the start and at end.

If the link fails, google bbc.co.uk and search ‘Trust me I’m a Doctor’. It was Series 5 Episode 3
BTW, The info on the link says 1 teaspoonful every day, it’s
not what I was told🙄
Beryl, I hope they gave you a medal after your participation in that trial! I’ve been to India and eaten Indian food 3x a day for four weeks, and I loved it. But two teaspoons … that is one helluva lot of turmeric. St. Beryl of the Spicerack.
So this is a supplement? Where does one purchase it?
Protandim is a dietary supplement, usually available over the counter or Amazon. But as with anything taken orally, best discussed with a Neurologist first in case of interaction with already prescribed medication xB
Perhaps I’ll mention it at my Good Shepherd evaluation next wed. Thank you.
Would love to know how Protandim is going.
Hi Rachel. There hasn’t been much discussion about Protandim. If you click on ‘Joy’s’ picture, you can send her a private message to ask about it xB
I have sent her a PM but wanted another opinion as well
