Can Diet Prevent ALS?

Can Diet Prevent ALS?
Can Diet Prevent ALS?: Main Image
Risk of developing ALS decreased 25% in people consuming the highest amount of carotenoids
Eating more brightly colored fruits and vegetables might help prevent or delay the onset of ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), a progressive neurodegenerative disorder commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.

What is ALS?

ALS affects the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that control movement. Over time these nerve cells die, leading to an inability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement. Eventually, the disease may lead to total paralysis and is nearly always fatal. ALS usually doesn't affect intelligence, and people with advanced ALS can still control their eye movements as well as bladder and bowel function.

Colorful help for ALS

Several studies have suggested that oxidative stress-damage caused by unstable compounds called free radicals-contributes to ALS. Some studies have shown that high-dose vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant, can slow the progression of ALS in animals with the hereditary form of the disease.

According to the study published in Annals of Neurology, to see what effect antioxidant carotenoids and vitamin C had on the risk of developing ALS, researchers pooled the results of five different studies including the National Institutes of Health-AARP Diet and Health Study, the Cancer Prevention Study II-Nutrition Cohort, the Multiethnic Cohort, the Health Professionals Follow-up Study, and the Nurses' Health Study. Information from more than one million people was included in the study. Of these, 1,153 people died from ALS.

  • Risk of developing ALS decreased 25% in people consuming the highest amount of carotenoids compared with those consuming the least.
  • Risk of developing ALS was 21% lower for those with higher dietary lutein intake, and 15% lower for those with higher beta-carotene intake.
  • Vitamin C and other carotenoids, including lycopene and beta-cryptoxanthin, didn't seem to affect ALS risk.

"ALS is a devastating degenerative disease that generally develops between the ages of 40 and 70, and affects more men than women," said senior study author Dr. Alberto Ascherio, Professor of Epidemiology and Nutrition at Harvard School of Public Health in Boston. "Understanding the impact of food consumption on ALS development is important. Our study is one of the largest to date to examine the role of dietary antioxidants in preventing ALS."

Lutein is found in many vegetables, including kale, collard greens, corn, romaine lettuce, turnip greens, spinach, Brussels sprouts, and zucchini. Egg yolks are another rich source.

Beta-carotene is found in sweet potatoes, spinach, broccoli, cantaloupe, winter squash, cilantro, and other dark leafy greens.

"Our findings suggest that consuming carotenoid-rich foods may help prevent or delay the onset of ALS," concluded Dr. Ascherio. "Further food-based analyses are needed to examine the impact of dietary nutrients on ALS."

Comments about OBESITY RESEARCH Lipozene® (Amorphophallus konjac ) - 2 Bottle Bonus Pack:

the thing about thing pill which they state is not for people who only have a few pounds to lose and for people who are severely over weight... the reasoning behind this is because most people who are severely overweight also over eat... this means if they take this pill and they don't eat as much for even a few weeks are going to see a difference now if they start to exercise along with eating less and drinking more water they are going to have significant effects from taking this pill. now for people who aren't over eaters or addicted to eating so they are over stuffed this pill is not going to work. if you don't over eat then that is not your problem at all its the fact that you are simply not exercising to burn the amount of calories you are taking in so you have a little extra weight. all you need to do is exercise or change what you are actually putting in your mouth... as for the over eaters and food addicts this will help control your appetite make you feel full and with some exercise give you good results!

Comments about OBESITY RESEARCH Lipozene® (Amorphophallus konjac ) - 2 Bottle Bonus Pack:

These commercials bother me so much that I felt like I had to write a review on this product. First of all, my issue with this product is not with GNC, but with the Obesity Research Institute who makes it. I'm sure that if you are reading a review on this product you have probably seen the commercial with that annoying woman making unbelievable claims about this product. If you pay attention to what is actually being said though, Lipozene doesn't end up looking all that great.

The only ingredient in Lipozene is Amorphophallus Konjac, or as you will usually hear it called, Glucomannan or Konjac root. Konjac is an expanding fiber that when ingested expands in your stomach to make you feel fuller. This is not a bad thing because it can act as an appetite suppressant and help move waste through your body, but that is all it is capable of doing. Konjac does not speed up your metabolism or cause your body to burn more fat. Now, if you were to take this and it caused you to eat less, then you would be theoretically able to lose weight due to the calorie deficit (along with exercise). Now, the Obesity Research Institute would like you to believe that Lipozene "attacks" body fat. NO IT DOESN'T. As I stated above, Konjac has no direct effect on body fat. To say that it is directly targeting body fat is not just misleading, it is a flat out lie

These are my biggest problems with the product, which are repeated over and over again on their commercials. They say that Lipozene cause people to lose weight and of that weight 78% was pure body fat. Sounds good, but what was the other 22%? You could assume that some of it was probably water weight, but more than likely it would also include muscle. In case you didn't know, you do not want to lose muscle mass. The more muscle you have, the more fat you are able to burn. So this means that if you start to lose muscle mass, then you are going to be unable to burn fat as effectively.

The second issue is with the fine print on the commercial. It said that in their "double-blind, clinical study" participants lost on average 3.86 lbs. over the course of 8 weeks. Hmm, so 3.86 lbs divided by 8 weeks. That averages out to .48 lbs per week, or 7.68 oz. That really isn't that effective when diet and exercise alone can easily do more than that.

Finally, one bottle contains 30 pills. Just to help you feel full, you need to take 2 pills, 3x a day with meals. So you have to take 6 pills a day for it to be effective, which means that one bottle will give you 5 days worth. But you get a second bottle for free right? Awesome, so now you get 10 days worth instead of 5.

Simply put, do not waste your money on this. You can find similar products in the store that will do the same thing for less. For example, there is a GNC product called Chitosan w/Glucomannan. Like the Glucomannan(Konjac root), Chitosan is another fiber that expands in your stomach to help you feel full. This one gives you 120 servings (vs. 60 for Lipozene), and it is about 2 bucks less.

    Walked past it on a sale rack and decided to give it a shot. This thing works like every other supplement out there..meaning you need to put in the work...it keeps you full much longer and doesn't bloat...I only take 2 before lunch and sometimes 2 before dinner...i also run 8-10kms at least 3 times a week and eat clean 80% of the time...and have lost about 30lbs since January...so if this isn't working for you, then you're doing it wrong!!...u can't just take this and sit on the couch eating fried chicken!...true story!

        TV ads vs. Label

        Comments about OBESITY RESEARCH Lipozene® (Amorphophallus konjac ) - 2 Bottle Bonus Pack:

        The TV ads claim a 30 capsule bottle of Amorphophallus Konjac fiber is a one month supply.
        The lable says to take two capsules 30 minutes before each meal, meaning the 30 capsule bottle is a 5-day supply rather than a one month supply.
        I will take a wait-and-see attitude as to whether this product is effective, but as I begin, I question whether this product is more effective than taking any other fiber suppliment (such as psyllium) before meals.
        The main benifits appear to be 1) the product swells when you drink water, making you feel fuller before you begin eating, and 2) being a non-digested fiber laxative, it 'sweeps the intestines clean'.
        With the product costing $3 per day when used as directed, Metamucil may be a much cheaper alternative...
        Also, the recommendation that you not take vitamins or medications for two hours before or after using the product means you can not take medications or vitamins with your meals.
