What is Parkinson disease?

Parkinson disease is a progressive neurological disorder of movement and mental functions, characterized by the following:

  • Slow movement or inability to move (difficulties can be linked not only with execution of movement but also with planning and initiation of movement),
  • Postural instability and impaired balance leading to frequent falls,
  • Tremor (worst when the limb is at rest),
  • Reduced or fixed facial expressions (asked face, low-volume or monotone voice,
  • Gastrointestinal symptoms such as constipation (often one of the earliest symptoms),
  • Cognitive disturbances, including an inability to make decisions and adapt to new environments, poor problem solving, fluctuations in attention, and memory problems.

Parkinson disease affects more than 7 million people worldwide. These figures are expected to increase as the average age of the population rises. Parkinson disease is the result of damage to the nerves in the area of the brain that is responsible for controlling muscle tension and movement.

What supplements can help alleviate symptoms?

Antioxidants may prevent Parkinson disease, but do not seem to alleviate symptoms

Given the fact that an excess of free radicals in the body can contribute to Parkinson disease, it is logical to consider that increasing antioxidant intake with supplements may offer some therapeutic benefit.

Unfortunately, according to research, high intake of vitamin E and C do not seem to affect Parkinson disease (meaning it will not reduce symptoms when you suffer from the disease).

However, studies have indicated that taking daily supplements, vitamin C, and especially vitamin E, may prevent Parkinson disease. In a study, patients with early Parkinson disease took vitamin C and vitamin E each day for a period of seven years, evidenced less symptoms that people who did not take supplements.

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)

According to research, Coenzyme CoQ10 seems to be helpful for Parkinson disease. CoQ10 is indeed a powerful antioxidant and is also essential for the specific mitochondrial function, which is damaged in Parkinson disease

Reduced levels of CoQ10 have been demonstrated in individuals with Parkinson disease, and CoQ10 levels were strongly correlated with energy production in cells (mitochondria). This means that low level of CoQ10 will induce a lower level of energy available to perform actions.
