Anti-dementia drugs such as Donepezil, Rivastigmine, Galantamine and Memantine are the only effective materials. Is it truth?
A supplement is very useful and effective as dementia treatment. In some cases, a supplement outstrips these drugs.
That is the Feru-guard (made from ferulic acid) manufactured by GLOVIA in Japan.
Is there the scientific basis?
For instance, Dr.Kimura concluded on his monograph, 'Feru-guard may be effective and valuable for treating the behavioral and psychological symptoms of dementia in frontotemporal lobar degeneration and dementia with Lewy bodies'.
(Effect of ferulic acid and Angelica archangelica extract on behavioral and psychological symptoms of dementia in frontotemporal lobar degeneration and dementia with Lewy bodies.)

Although it is possible to see the effect of Feru-guard through some monographs, concrete image of effect is hard to realize by monographs. So, I describe the effect of Feru-gard based on the 'Feru-guard Users Questionnaire Survey'(in Japanese).
GLOVIA obtains 345 Feru-guard users' questionnaire survey. Taking Feru-guard for over 3-month and getting effects in them are summarized below.
Term of questionnaire survey: 07/01/2012 to 11/15/2012

Mr. Murase, the president of GLOVIA, says about the use of Feru-guard on its homepage.
Besides there are many types including DLB, FTLD as well as ATD only for dementia. I knew one where a pure type of dementia turned into with time and that other types or the distinction that a degenerative disease merged it, and a symptom changed came to the original type a lot.
In addition, there is big individual difference of symptoms in such a disease even if it is the same type. I grasp such situation properly, and we think if a family doctor exchanging information with patient and a family close to frequence is the only doctor who can give patient appropriate medical care.
With that in mind, the means to have you use Feru-guard most usefully has a family doctor's understanding about effects of Feru-guard properly and thinks that it is to have you incorporate it as an appropriate medical part.
As sales strategy of GLOVIA, the Feru-guard should be supplied through medical institutions. There is a characteristic every product, and the reason is because how to use depending on a symptom is necessary. The way of thinking made with such faithfulness and sincerity for the patient side is worth of praising.
Ferulic acid is a hydroxycinnamic acid, a type of organic compound. It is an abundant phenolic phytochemical found in plant cell wall components such as arabinoxylans as covalent side chains. It is related to trans-cinnamic acid. As a component of lignin, ferulic acid is a precursor in the manufacture of other aromatic compounds. (transcribed from Wikipedia)
Kono method recommends suppliment, especially 'Feru-guard', for dementia treatment. However, in Japan, supplement have been disparaged and underestimated as nonsence.
Although this disparage, the Kono method has been saving outpatients with dementia such as ATD, DLB, FTLD, SD,DNTC, NPH and PNFA, by supplement.
The effective thing is truth. It's pragmatism.
