Cut Your Parkinson’s Risk in HALF… Starting Today
Dear Living Well Daily Reader,
If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s, you know it’s like a double hit of bad news.
It’s hard enough to deal with the tremors, stiffness, fatigue, mood changes and speech problems… but then you learn that mainstream medicine has practically no good ways to treat or prevent the disease.
But it looks like that may be starting to change.
Because an amazing study has just shown that two natural compounds can slash your risk of Parkinson’s disease in HALF!
And the best part — they’re already in some of your favorite foods.
The first miracle nutrient is vitamin E — and according to a new study, it might just be the best way to make sure you never get Parkinson’s.
For the study, researchers analyzed the dietary data of 249 patients during their first six years of suffering from Parkinson’s disease.
Next, they compared that information to the dietary data of 386 people who were not suffering from the disease.
And what they found was remarkable…
Folks who had a high intake of vitamin E reduced their risk of Parkinson’s disease by 55 percent.
Additionally, researchers discovered that folks who had a high intake of beta-carotene reduced their risk by 44 percent.
Researchers believe the reason these two natural compounds are so effective against Parkinson’s is that they are antioxidants, which can neutralize free radicals. Scientist have long thought that free radicals play an important role in nerve damage, including the type associated with Parkinson’s.
Vitamin E is found in foods like eggs, almonds and avocados. Beta-carotene is in lots of orange-colored foods like carrots, pumpkins and cantaloupes. These two powerhouse antioxidants are found together in foods like sweet potatoes and butternut squash.
So this means eating a breakfast of eggs and cantaloupe is an easy and tasty way to fight Parkinson’s.
However, unless you’re eating five or more servings of these foods every day, you may not be getting enough of these incredible antioxidants.
You can add more of these two powerful antioxidants through supplements. Experts recommend getting between 3–6 mg of beta-carotene. The recommended dosage for vitamin E can range from 400–800 IU. Check with your doc to find the right dosage for you.
