Parkinson's disease and diet


Parkinson's disease and diet.🍌🥑

.

🧠Parkinson's disease (PD) is a common neurodegenerative disorder that leads to shaking, stiffness, and difficulty with walking, balance, and coordination.

.

Parkinson's disease occurs when neurons that produce dopamine in an area of the brain that controls movement become impaired or die. Dysfunctional nerve cells produce less dopamine, which causes the movement problems of Parkinson's.

.

Although there is no cure for Parkinson's disease, medicines, surgical treatment, and other therapies can often relieve some symptoms. Supportive therapies include a healthy diet and exercises to strengthen muscles and improve balance.

.

There is growing evidence that diet can attenuate the neuroinflammation implicated in the pathophysiology of PD. The gut-brain axis seems to be at play when it comes to PD development and progression. Patients with ⁣ Parkinson’s disease often have gastrointestinal issues before developing the disease.

.

🔬A large review of studies in 2019 showed that an anti-inflammatory diet reduced Parkinson’s symptoms and slowed disease progression. Researchers suggested that it is due to improved gut integrity and reduced gut inflammation.

.

Eating after a Parkinson’s diagnosis does not have to be complicated, confusing, or extreme.

.

👉A well-balanced diet rich in a variety of foods, including numerous servings of vegetables and fruits (especially those containing nicotine, carotenoids) and moderate amounts of omega-3 fatty acids, soy, tea, caffeine, and wine may provide neuroprotection in patients with PD.

.

Remember, with the right support you can take control of your symptoms and disease progression.⁣
