Is the Deanna Protocol pure and natural?
The Deanna Protocol is a mix of nutrients naturally found in the body (Arginine, Alpha-ketogluterate, and gamma-Aminobutyric acid) in a proprietary ratio that studies have proven most effective. The Deanna Protocol product that we sell also contains all-natural flavoring that has been taste and sensitivity tested by Deanna and others, to ensure that the flavoring is easy on the stomach and the tastebuds! The Deanna Protocol is also pure. There are no artificial preservatives, dyes or flavorings and no unnecessary fillers, excipients, chemicals or other ingredients. The flavoring is added in addition to the Protocol, so it does not compromise the purity of the product. For example, a one scoop measurement of the protocol is measured based on the amount of active ingredient you get in that scoop. Any flavoring present in that scoop is not included in the serving measurements.
What are the risks of taking the Deanna Protocol?
The substances in the Deanna Protocol are naturally found in the body. They are not pharmaceutical drugs, like Riluzole/Rilutek, and are not foreign chemicals being introduced into the body. Taking them at the published servings should not be harmful, provided that you do not have any other medical issues that would make you sensitive to any of the substances or a combination of them and provided that there are no contraindications with substances or drugs you are already consuming. You should check with your doctor to ensure that following the protocol is safe for you, specifically.
What quality control standards do you use in manufacturing?
Our products are made in the United States in a facility that abides by the FDA’s CGMP (Current Good Manufacturing Process) standards. The facility where we manufacture also tests all raw ingredients for purity, the presence of bacteria and viruses, heavy metals and any other substances that should not be present in the raw materials. After manufacturing, the facility also tests the finished products again to make sure they meet the same standards as the raw products. They test every batch and provide us with certificates of analysis for every batch tested. Additionally, the manufacturing facility washes equipment down after every batch, using food grade cleaners on the equipment. Then, the equipment is washed down again with water to remove the cleaners from the equipment. The manufacturing and storage facilities are also temperature and humidity controlled to ensure that the active ingredients retain their shelf life. We also manufacture in small batches, to avoid having to keep inventory on the shelves (which wears out shelf life).
What research exists to prove the Deanna Protocol’s effectiveness?

Will my neurologist approve of me taking the Deanna Protocol?
Most are neutral toward the protocol.
Why? Physicians expose themselves to legal liability and risk having their medical licenses revoked if they recommend treatments, solutions or supplements that are not officially recognized by the medical community as “standard of care” for the disease they are treating. Regardless of what evidence may exist supporting new treatments or solutions, physicians are legally obligated to recommend only what falls within “standard of care.” The Deanna Protocol is not and may never be a part of the officially recognized “standard of care” for ALS or neurodegenerative diseases because it is extremely difficult to get non-pharmaceutical substances recognized as part of standard of care. (One reason is because it is impossible to gain FDA approval for a substance that is not a pharmaceutical, as FDA does not approve non-pharmaceuticals. Another reason is that it is also nearly impossible to get FDA recognized clinical trials on a natural substance that is not a pharmaceutical.) Given this information above, if your doctor has no problem with you being on the Deanna Protocol, consider this the strongest green light you may ever receive from a physician regarding the Deanna Protocol. Please keep your doctor updated on how you are doing on the Deanna Protocol whenever you can. While your doctor may not be allowed to recommend it, he/she will likely remain very interested in your progress.
