NEW: Important Legal Question Q: Can I tell my patients that I do Plaquex treatments if I order EPL from somewhere else ?
  A: No. Plaquex is a registered trademark and may only be used on your website, brochures, advertisements or explanations to patients and others if you are using the compounded Plaquex from AnazaoHealth.

  Q: What are the indications for Plaquex ?
  A: Atherosclerosis (angina pectoris, peripheral vascular disease, stroke, carotid obstruction etc.); liver disease; kidney disease; new findings suggest Alzheimer's, Macular Degeneration. It is important to understand that Plaquex among other things replaces damaged phospholipids in cell membranes so the cells return to normal health and function. This is especially important in patients over 50 years of age, as the body's own phospholipid synthesis declines with increasing age thus rendering the body unable to repair the constant damage to cell membranes.

These statements have not been evaluated by the US FDA and are meant for doctors in countries where the original Plaquex formula has been approved.
