Dr. Takehiko Fujino (M.D., Ph.D.) is the first person who was involved in the study of heart and vascular system diseases in Internal Medicine at the School of Medicine, Kysuhu University and subsequently appointed Emeritus Professor. After his retirement, he was appointed Head of Institute of Hemorheological Function of Foods. In 1991, Dr. Fujino announced the concept of “brain fatigue” and advocated the Brain Oriented Oneself Control System theory (BOOCS). The guru of plasmalogen study, he has published multiple books with the most recent entitled “Dementia is no longer a fatal disease! Plasmalogens in brain play a role in neurogenesis” (Bookman, Inc.).
With a deep passion to find a solution for dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, Dr. Fujino led a research team in Japan to conduct the world’s first clinical trial in 2013 and 2014. The team make a groundbreaking discovery on the benefits of plasmalogen on Alzheimer’s patients and successfully developed and patented an extraction method to extract high potency plasmalogen from scallop, also known as Scallop-derived PLASMALOGEN.
Scallop-derived PLASMALOGEN is not a drug. It is a safe and natural dietary therapy developed to complement conventional treatment for dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. It is intended to provide dietary supplementation to support and manage specific nutrient deficiency associated with Alzheimer’s and dementia. It is safe and no known side effects have been associated with daily consumption of Scallop-derived PLASMALOGEN supplement, except if one is allergic to scallop or soybean.
Scallop-derived PLASMALOGEN is now commercially available at lifestreamgroup.com
