ReCODE Protocol™

ReCODE Protocol™ is the only clinically proven program to reverse cognitive decline in early-stage Alzheimer’s disease. The ReCODE Program™ is intended for individuals who are currently experiencing symptoms of cognitive decline and are ready to engage in an intensive program to restore and enhance cognitive function while promoting overall health. It was designed for anyone experiencing subjective cognitive impairment (SCI), mild cognitive impairment (MCI), and those with early-stage Alzheimer’s Disease. The program is most effective when used in the early stages, but we have examples of reversal in the mid to late stages.

The ReCODE Report®

The ReCODE Program relies upon the ReCODE Report — a highly individualized evaluation of your cognitive health analyzed by a software program created by Dr. Dale Bredesen and his team at Apollo Health. The report includes information on which of the six subtypes are contributing to your symptoms of cognitive decline and provides detailed, personalized instructions to specially address whatever is driving our symptoms, including nutritional, lifestyle, hormone, and supplement recommendations. The report will be generated following the completion of labs (not included and only available to those in the U.S.), medical questionnaires, and cognitive testing. Download a sample ReCODE Report here.

The Science Behind the ReCODE Protocol

Internationally recognized expert on the mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases, Dr. Dale Bredesen, has over 30 years of research on the causes of Alzheimer’s disease, shedding light on the variety of “insults” resulting from modern society that lead to neurodegeneration and interfere with the preservation of brain health. These insults, such as inflammation, insulin resistance, lack of trophic support, susceptibility to specific pathogens in our environment, and multiple other factors contribute to cognitive decline.

Inspired by Dr. Bredesen’s groundbreaking program that has demonstrated the reversal of cognitive decline, the ReCODE Program provides you with the tools you need to defend yourself against these insults and optimize brain health for enhanced cognition. Learn more about the science behind the ReCODE Protocol.

ReCODE Program Features:

  • A ReCODE Report will be generated following labs (not included & only available to U.S. residents) and completion of an online medical questionnaire and cognitive assessments. Download a sample report here.
  • Your ReCODE Report will specifically identify what is driving your current symptoms leading to an identification of your specific Alzheimer’s subtypes and provide personalized instructions, including comprehensive supplement recommendations designed to halt the progression and reverse symptoms of cognitive decline while optimizing overall health.
  • The Practitioner and Coach Locator Tool is available to build the team you need to help ensure your success. Because the reversal of cognitive decline can be complex, we require you to work with a ReCODE Trained Primary Practitioner. We highly encourage you to consider working with a health coach and other supportive practitioners as needed. Your account will be seamlessly integrated with all members of your team, allowing for easy access, communication, and support.
  • Complimentary BrainHQ account for brain stimulation workouts.
  • Access to advanced cognitive assessments, including SLUMS or MoCA, AQ-21 (bi-annually), and CNS Vital Signs (monthly) to track your progress.
  • Q & A opportunities with Dr. Bredesen through monthly Town Hall meetings, which will be videotaped and conveniently available to view at your convenience.
  • A library of written and video guides for the reversal of cognitive decline, with detailed lifestyle and nutritional information, including simple and delicious KetoFLEX 12/3 recipes.
  • Access to an online community for support and education.
  • The ReCODE Mobile App helps simplify the protocol and ensure compliance.

There are two annual membership plans for the ReCODE Program that are billed monthly or annually at a discounted rate. This program requires a one-year commitment and supports ongoing treatments, which may take approximately three months to a year to show initial reversal or improvement. Please note that you may need additional tests recommended and arranged by your physician, which could lead to additional costs.

Program Subscription

ReCODE Annual Membership (Billed Monthly) $75 Monthly Unavailable at this time $75 Monthly + One-time Payment of $930
ReCODE Discounted Annual Membership (Billed Annually) $810 Unavailable at this time$1740

*Due to supply constraints, we are not currently offering mobile blood draws. All participants can still complete their blood draws at a local Quest testing facility and will be charged at a discounted rate. You will be messaged through our Message inbox when we are ready to schedule your draw appointment.

Additionally, our lab partner does not presently provide the included glutathione test for ReCODE participants. All ReCODE labs will receive a $75 discount due to the missing test.

In an effort to bring you the lowest possible pricing on the ReCODE blood panel, we have extended our lab discounts to you — Apollo Health does not make a profit from the labs. The ReCODE Test Panel List can be found here. Please note that labs are only available to U.S. residents.

Empowering Knowledge

With both ReCODE and PreCODE, you’ll identify the current or emerging sources of your cognitive decline to identify your Alzheimer’s subtype(s) and be empowered to prevent or reverse symptoms.

Dive Deep

ReCODE is the first to report the reversal of cognitive decline in patients with early Alzheimer’s disease by analyzing genetics, metabolic health, inflammatory markers, trophic support and more thorough extensive laboratory testing to generate a personalized ReCODE Report.

Cutting-Edge Science

The ReCODE Protocol is based on the breakthrough findings of Dr. Dale Bredesen, a world-renowned leader in Alzheimer’s disease research and a New York Times Best-Selling author.

Where to Begin

Getting your ReCODE Report is the first step to applying the Bredesen Protocol treatments. Review your results with a certified practitioner and begin your journey to health.

Dale Bredesen, MD

Dr. Bredesen’s career has been guided by a simple idea: that Alzheimer’s and cognitive decline as we know it is not just preventable, but reversible. Thanks to a dedicated pursuit of finding the science that that makes this a reality, his idea has placed Dr. Bredesen at the vanguard of neurological research, and led to the discoveries that today underlie the ReCODE and PreCODE Reports.
