on this site, look to the right and listen to Dr. D'Adamo talk about this product.

Dissolving mis-folded proteins and gunk sounds interesting. It appears fairly safe when looking into it more.

Another wonder-supplement from Japan, made by Hayashibara company. I couldn't find any human clinical studies for trehalose on ncbi. There are several articles about how trehalose is great and is supposed to do this or that according to some theoretical models and experiments, but no clinical studies on humans despite its safety. If trehalose indeed did all those remarkable things of breaking amyloids and helping Alzhimer's patients, shouldn't the big pharma jump on this opportunity to fund human studies and make drugs out of it? Instead, in 2000, Cargill and Hayashibara filed for an FDA approval of using trehalose as an artificial sweetener and other food additive. So, if you want to get it cheaply, buy it here rather than from the source shown in the video: http://www.swansonvitamins.com/swanson-ultra-pure-trehalose-1-lb-454-grams-pwdr I doubt that this sweetener will do anything more than a regular sugar.

I think this is the same thing yasko puts in her supplements. Then she adds a little NADPH, a tiny methyl folate and maybe a little riboflavin and charges like $50 a bottle and then recommends another 40 bottles of similar things.
Sorry for the sarcasm.
But I wonder what her rational was.

Here is the presentation of Dr. Skowron on this year's autismone conference.
He did mention a small groups study of autistic children being given trehalose for one and half months. except for a few who dropped out because of intolerance of trehalose (just like some people have intolerance of lactose due to the body's lack of certain enzymes), every child improved in every area like social, language, physical areas.

Here is some studies showing that autistic children have amyloid plaques.

I also searched some elderly people's forum where they talked about taking trehalose to prevent Alzheimer's. Some people do have interesting reaction from taking this stuff. it seems that trehalose can definitely be doing something.
