Psychophysiological changes are reported in subjects regularly taking MAK (MAPI, Inc., Lancaster, MA), an herbal food supplement demonstrating antineoplastic, antioxidant and anti-aging activities in animal and in in-vitro studies. Six hundred fifty-nine subjects (age 41+9, taking MAK 22+11 mos) reported substantial benefits in 19 psychophysiological indices, e.g., increased resistance to illness 87%; happiness 84%; energy 78%; tranquility 83%; mental clarity and emotional balance 80%. Remaining subjects noted no change or condition worsened, < 1%. A substantial percentage of previous sufferers (46 on medical treatment) reported benefits on 21 illnesses, e.g. colds 94% improved or eliminated, n=209; PMS 84%, 120; constipation 87%, 245; hay fever 81%, 118; headaches 78%, 148; fatigue 88%, 249; asthma 82%, 28; cancer 90%, 10; rheumatoid arthritis 73%, 22; autoimmunity 100%, 10. Only 3% (n=22) reported minor complaints, e.g. bad taste; sugar rush; upset stomach; and diarrhea. Blood chemistry (24 values) and complete blood profile in 82 separate volunteers showed no abnormal findings associated with MAK intake. Substantial benefits indicate that MAK may be valuable as a preventive agent, a therapeutic adjunct and a safe candidate for clinical trials.
