There were side effects from Anatabloc. His metabolism sped up a great deal which caused him to lose weight. His weight reached an undesirable low point which was cause for concern. He was also cold all the time and just could not seem to get warm. These side effects along with the lack of a change in his C-Reactive Proteins convinced us it was not worth it for dad. My personal final analysis is that perhaps it will be a better weight loss supplement rather than a cure for dementia.
