Deanna Protocol* Overview

The Deanna Protocol* was developed by an orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Vincent Tedone, who wanted to formulate a treatment regimen for his daughter, Deanna, when she was diagnosed with ALS. Dr. Tedone has anecdotally reported that his daughter had a good experience with the protocol, and feedback we have received from a large number of PALS has been promising. The Deanna Protocol includes a large number of ingredients taken at various times during the day. There have been several changes to the protocol since it was first released to the public, with the last version introducing the DP Core. However, not all updates were conceived to improve the overall potency or efficacy. Instead, some changes were made to make the complex protocol (i.e., many supplements taken at various points throughout the day) easier to follow and less expensive for ALS patients and caregivers. NutriVine Vitamins became involved with supporting PALS with ease of ordering all the supplements in one place since the beginning of 2013. We organized, measured and referenced all versions of the Deanna Protocol, and continue to be ally of PALS following the Deanna Protocol by offering a personalized service.

We are pleased to introduce two new products released specifically for people following the Deanna Protocol Core: Simplesa AAKG+ Core Powder and Simplesa AKG Liquid. The AAKG+ Core Powder combines four of the nutrients in the new core, AKG Liquid Concentrate provides the same 300 mg of AKG as recommended, just in an easier to swallow liquid form. Combined, these two products reduce the number of capsules that need to be swallowed by those following the DP Core down to one. To follow the Core DP, take AKG as recommended, 1 capsule of 5-HTP in the evening, and caprylic acid as needed. (Continuing with Glutathione is highly recommended). We've already had some other PALS try the AAKG+ Core Powder, and they all like it very much. As always, there are no binders or fillers in the products we provide, only the purest form of each ingredient. To follow the Full Deanna Protocol, simply add Simplesa DPS-AM & DPS-PM Blends to your order. Click here to see.
