$278 a month! I guess only the rich people will be getting this medicine.
No it doesn't. Studies have shown that fish oil showed no health benefits. It's just modern snake oil.
Ahh the double standard! They say something doesn't work and then turn around and say "yes it works, ONLY if you buy it from us."YOU CAN BUY PURE PURIFIED OMEGA-3 EPA FROM ANY DECENT HEALTH FOOD STORE.
Hmm sounds like the bio tech company amrn.
This product has been available in the US for at least 10 years and it is FREE! You simply get all you want( almost) in samples from your doctor and it has very little to do with the products in US grocery stores . This story and video is uneducated and misleading and AGAIN NBC needs to delete this footage because it’s a manipulative video with old info
Sounds fishy….get it ? ???
The FDA is the biggest pocket scam on earth. !
I'd wager big pharma will claim that they have a "purified" form of CBD in the works…. NO SUCH THING. It works as advertised, NOW, and is available just about everywhere.Cannabis Cannabinoid Res. 2017 Oct 1;2(1):259-264. doi: 10.1089/can.2017.0033. eCollection 2017.Translating Endocannabinoid Biology into Clinical Practice: Cannabidiol for Stroke Prevention.Scharf EL1.Author informationAbstractIntroduction: The endocannabinoid system (ECS) regulates functions throughout human physiology, including neuropsychiatric, cardiovascular, autonomic, metabolic, and inflammatory states. The complex cellular interactions regulated by the ECS suggest a potential for vascular disease and stroke prevention by augmenting central nervous and immune cell endocannabinoid signaling. Discussion:
The endocannabinoid N-arachidonoylethanolamine (anandamide) plays a central role in augmenting these processes in cerebrovascular and neurometabolic disease. Furthermore, cannabidiol (CBD), a nonpsychoactive constituent of Cannabis, is an immediate therapeutic candidate both for potentiating endocannabinoid signaling and for acting at multiple pharmacological targets. Conclusion:
This speculative synthesis explores the current state of knowledge of the ECS and suggests CBD as a therapeutic candidate for stroke prevention by exerting favorable augmentation of the homeostatic effects of the ECS and, in turn, improving the metabolic syndrome, while simultaneously stalling the development of atherosclerosis.
CBD Therapy for Strokes
Cannabidiol is already under intense investigation for its ability to treat neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer's disease. Through this valuable research, CBD has been shown to have some neurogenerative properties, which means it can trigger brain cell repair and generation. So, CBD also is thought to hold significant promise in stroke treatment, especially in the crisis period immediately following the onset of symptoms.
In stroke recovery, speed is the key component to treatment. There are now two main options for treatment, both of which need to be used immediately after diagnosis. Tissue plasminogen indicator is used for ischemic strokes and endovascular surgery is used for hemorrhagic strokes. These treatments need to be applied within three hours and six hours respectively.
A therapy involving CBD would be no different, speed would be essential. Cannabidiol has been shown to have a powerful capability to increase cerebral blood flow, which means it more quickly restores oxygen and nutrients to the areas of the brain damaged during the stroke. It is thought to be beneficial only to people who have suffered an ischemic stroke because, while it can help restore blood flow and dissipate the blood clot, it cannot help correct a ruptured artery as found in hemorrhagic strokes. Tissue plasminogen indicator is used in much the same way that CBD would be used. They both increase blood flow and help to disintegrate the clot.
CBD prevents secondary damage, heals existing damage
Cerebral ischemia, or inadequate blood supply to the brain, caused by a stroke or heart failure can cause severe damage. The blood circulation is usually restored as fast as possible in the emergency room, but secondary ischemia/reperfusion injury is common. Inflammation often occurs, causing oxidative-stress-induced damage in the areas deprived of blood, oxygen, and nutrients.
Too much omega-3 can cause fatty liver which is bad..
We need Free Healthcare for all!
I honestly can't believe that they let this dietary supplement Vascepa slide as some innovative drug. What a corrupt world we live in.
its different fish oil than what you can buy over the counter. hahahaahaha its fish oil folks!
Sounds like there are a lot of shorts on this company! LMAO…you need to cover on Monday 11/12….ask your doctor for a prescription V
Too bad if you missed the 300% ONE DAY gain on AMRN. Unbelievable. The return of a lifetime. Still has room to grow. I’m guessing low to mid 30s as cardiology catches on and the next round of data emerges… likely centered on inflammation reduction. We’ll see.
need a Dr to tell me a i can use pure fish oil, rofl.
Only pharmaceutical grade right? Of course, no money in tuna!!
It's cheaper to eat fish.
Amarin creates hype with promising words and mutes the moments which can cause denial from potential Vascepa users, such as side effects. And the fact that they gave mineral oil to patients as a placebo, which in fact could cause harm to their health in order to make fish oil look better in comparison!
Lies from start to finish. Vascepa is not a medicine, just a Supplement that does not have the claimed effect on people with CVD.
The study of Vascepa was fake! The main group of patients, in addition to Vascepa, took statins and followed a strict diet. This calls into question the entire study as a whole.
$ 278 that they ask for a monthly course will cause me to have a heart attack earlier than Wendy's burgers
ohh, new video from my favorite scammers
$278 A MONTH???? I`ll not eat it even for free
278 a month 8.99 x 5 week about the same cost . 180 .00 plus 20xt 200
Whatta Scam!!! SHAME ON YOU NBC for broadcasting a story about a product that almost NO ONE but the RICH can afford!!!!!!! Dr. Torres KNOWS this is a scam and couldn't even get his words out on the 11-10-2018 broadcast… stammering over the possible lie he was telling… (and then YOU COVERED IT UP ON THE YOUTUBE CUT, CHANGING HIS ORIGINAL STAMMERING WORDS WITH GUILT ON HIS FACE… SHAME ON YOU AGAIN!!!) Does NBC get a CUT from the drug from the company, as there is no generic! Why even show this story when most cannot even think about this product at the price mentioned!!! HOW SAD NBC… you need to manage your stories MUCH better, and let BIG pharma push their OWN DRUGS!!! (really, there is no PSA here… was this a news/AD ??? Did you get paid ??? Really… come clean…)
Vascepa is crap and this so-called Doctor is just a snake oil (err … fish oil) salesman. Use the upcoming purified, concentrated krill oil product called CaPre that will be coming to market soon. It's made by Acasti Pharma Inc. and is in phase 3 trials right now. It will also be covered by your medical insurance co-pay, so it'll be much cheaper, safer and more convenient than taking the equivalent of 40 krill oil pills per day. The stock ticker symbol is ACST, if you want to get in on the ground floor of the company's stock before CaPre gets it's FDA approval and the stock explodes in price. The project is already fully funded and they already know they're going to get approved, so they secured patents in several countries and have sales already set up ahead of time.
Interesting that Vascepa commercials begin by attacking fish oil supplements. It was the success of supplements that lead to studies to find a way to patent a fish oil product so that big pharma could profit from it. To me this serves to prove that media and big pharma attacks against supplements in general have basis only in a money trail for big pharma and its media ads.
I will continue to use supplements as they paved the way and are readily available at a lower cost.
Fish oil is fish oil. Purified simply means it’s more concentrated. Just take OTC fish oil and save your money.
