Adding medical foods is a key part of comprehensive Alzheimer’s disease management
- Adding Axona to Alzheimer’s disease management addresses different aspects of the disease at the same time and may further enhance memory and cognition in Alzheimer’s disease*1
MEDICAL FOOD – AXONA
Axona supplies ketone bodies as an alternative fuel source when glucose alone can no longer fulfill the brain’s energy needs.
N-methyl-D-aspartic acid (NMDA) receptor antagonists protect neurons from the harmful effects of excessive glutamate activity in the brain.
Acetylcholinesterase inhibitors (AChEIs) slow the breakdown of acetylcholine (ACh), a key neurotransmitter involved in learning and memory.
Axona can be used concurrently with Alzheimer’s drug treatments1,5
- Approximately 80% of Axona clinical trial participants were taking at least one prescription of Alzheimer’s disease medicine
- Axona can be taken alone or with Alzheimer’s disease drug treatments, including AChEIs and NMDA receptor antagonists
