Parkinson's disease can be improved with Supplements


Recently I learned that my colleague has Parkinson's diseases.

Parkinson's disease is famous for being an incurable disease of unknown cause. It's incidence is about 1 in 1,000 people. In other words, there are more than 300,000 people with Parkinson's disease in the U.S.

Although some people may think that this number is small, it is something that all people need to think about.

The fear of side effects of Parkinson's disease medicine

In the past, Parkinson's patients became bedridden in several years. But now, the situation has changed dramatically. As a result of the improvements in medicine, the patient can now walk normally for more than 10 years.

Actually my colleague developed Parkinson's desease 3 years ago, but he commutes to the office everyday and is working normally. I didn't notice my colleague had Parkinson's disease until he confessed to me.

Parkinson's disease is a disease in which dopamine, a neurotransmitter in the brain, is reduced or deficient. A newly developed medicine "L-Dopa formulation" is a drug that increases dopamine concentrations.

However, this medicine has various side effects such as "nausea", "reduction in appetite", "restriction in mobility" and "extreme sleepiness". Furthermore, this side effect gradually becomes stronger.

My colleague is often attacked by a sudden sleepiness many times a day. So, he is afraid to drive a car.

How to delay progression of Parkinson's disease with supplements

Some ingredients which effective for Parkinson's disease have been revealed in recent research. These ingredients can be efficiently ingested by using supplements, so I would like to introduce some great supplements.

These supplements are very effective not only to improve Parkinson's disease but also to prevent dementia and Alzheimer's disease. I recommend taking medication everyday to prevent these diseases.
