Reduce symptoms of Parkinson's with thiamine

(Natural News) A study from the University Studies Abroad Consortium in Italy found that thiamine, a B-vitamin found in beans and whole grains, can alleviate symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. In the paper, which appeared in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, the authors looked at the effects of long-term thiamine treatment in patients with the debilitating disorder....

In this study, PAEs with proteins ranging from 10 kDa to 250 kDa molecular weight was administered to 6-OHDA-induced PD rats. We found that PAEs inhibited 6-OHDA-induced neuronal cell death and TH-positive neuronal loss in SNc. PAEs administration also increased the levels of DA, DOPAC, and 5-HT, in addition to DOPAC/DA and HVA/DA indexes in the CSF and Striatum of 6-OHDA induced rats. Conversely, PAEs decreased the levels of Glu and GABA. Treatment with PAEs and Madopar increased GAP-43 and NF-H expression in the SNc and striatum. Proteomic analysis using LC/MS/MS indicated that 11 components of PAEs may have neuropharmac...

CONCLUSION: Exercise interventions containing functional-task training have a clinically important positive effect on ADL performance in pwp directly after intervention and at first follow-up, compared to no intervention or placebo. The intensity rate of the functional-task training should be as intense as possible, within the capabilities of the person with PD. Future research is necessary to determine the exact amount of effect that can be contributed to functional-task training. PMID: 30670260 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSION: More patients who participated in group exercise reported symptomatic improvement compared to those who exercised strictly alone. This suggests that the psychosocial and cognitive component of group therapy, such as dance, may confer additional benefits to PD patients. PMID: 30670269 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Jang JH, Jung K, Kim JS, Jung I, Yoo H, Moon C Abstract Parkinson's disease (PD), the second most common progressive neurodegenerative disorder, is characterized by complex motor and nonmotor symptoms. The clinical diagnosis of PD is defined by bradykinesia and other cardinal motor features, although several nonmotor symptoms are also related to disability, an impaired quality of life, and shortened life expectancy. Levodopa, which is used as a standard pharmacotherapy for PD, has limitations including a short half-life, fluctuations in efficacy, and dyskinesias with long-term use. There have been efforts ...

Authors: Huang W, He J, Nisar MF, Li H, Wan C Abstract Chaenomeles plants are adapted to diverse ecological zones particularly the temperate areas of Korea, Japan, and China. In China, Chaenomeles speciosa is mainly planted in Chongqing, Anhui, and Hubei provinces. Most of the studies till date have been focused on the anti-inflammatory activities of C. speciosa fractions. The present study aimed to review the maximum literature reported for the presence of various phytochemicals in C. speciosa. In addition, the pharmacological properties of these chemical compounds of this plant shall also be discussed. The extrac...

Authors: Ko JH, Lee JH, Choi B, Park JY, Kwon YW, Jeon S, Park SD, Kim SN Abstract Parkinson's disease is a neurodegenerative disease characterized by progressive cell death of dopaminergic neuron and following neurological disorders. Gagam-Sipjeondaebo-Tang (GST) is a novel herbal formula made of twelve medicinal herbs derived from Sipjeondaebo-Tang, which has been broadly used in a traditional herbal medicine. In the present study, we investigated the effects of GST against 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP)-induced motor abnormalities in mice and 1-methyl-4-phenylpyridinium (MPP+)-induced neurot...
