Alz1 Launches the First At-Home Solution to Detect, Help Reduce Risk Factor Associated with Alzheimer’s Disease

The revolutionary Alz1 solution includes a convenient at-home blood test and dietary supplement to enable proactive healthcare

MIAMI--()--Alz1, a brand of Igea Pharma (IGPH:SIX Swiss Ex) focused on reinventing proactive healthcare in Alzheimer’s disease, today announced the launch of Alz1, the first solution designed to detect and reduce high free copper levels in the bloodstream — a risk factor associated with Alzheimer's disease — through a first-of-its-kind in-home blood test and dietary supplement for those with elevated free copper levels.1

“The digital revolution has sparked a shift in the way consumers think about and access healthcare,” said Diego Mortillaro, CEO at Igea Pharma. “Our revolutionary Alz1 solution empowers consumers with the information they need to take steps now that can reduce a major risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease.”

The Alz1 Kit, available exclusively online, is an easy-to-use in-home blood collection kit designed to measure free copper, a modifiable risk factor that can contribute to the onset and progression of Alzheimer’s disease. Through the identification of free copper, the test empowers users to take proactive control — like lifestyle and dietary changes — of their health and well-being. With no doctor’s appointment, prescription or need to bill insurance, Alz1 ensures this area of strategic proactive healthcare is easier than ever.

If results shared exclusively with users through Alz1’s secure online platform show high free copper levels, users have the option to order the Alz1 Tab, a natural dietary supplement designed to reduce and control heavy metal contents in the bloodstream, including free copper. Containing glutathione and oleuropein, among other ingredients, the Alz1 Tab could be useful in protecting against neurodegeneration.

“In recent years, several of the most promising programs to develop drugs for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease failed,” said Mortillaro. “Compounding the issue, the Alzheimer’s Association revealed that the number of Americans who have Alzheimer’s is expected to more than double by 2050. Our mission is to find better, more convenient ways to help consumers have a positive impact on proven risk factors of Alzheimer’s.”
