Supplements in question: http://www.max.com/maxone/full/us/en
I've no experience with supplements.
My mother recently developed progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) and has been taking the pills in the link above.
They cost a pretty penny (MYR 700 for 3 bottles) and she pays it. The person who first sold it to her (and one other close family friend) is another friend they met through their religious meetings (Church).
I recently found out about this and looked into it, but could not find info, but that may be due to my inexperience with these things, so have decided to ask around for various things.
Turns out this supplement has... different effects to different people? My mother with PSP said it cures her leg aches/pains... if she takes 6 pills at once every morning. (prescription says to take 2 a day, morning and afternoon)
For the family friend mentioned... it reduces strain on her knees and gives her more energy.
Also found out, from the family friend, who still believes it works and has seen info on it but cannot quote me the source off the top of her head, that their mutual church friend who sold/recommended it to them is also a member of the company producing/selling these pills...
These all add up to quite a lot of red flags for me, any thoughts?
Supplement scams? (Diets & Supplements)
