One of the main underlying causes of Parkinson’s disease is the formation of Lewy bodies in our brains.
These Lewy bodies form because of a buildup of a protein called alpha-synuclein.
A study in the International Journal of Biological Macromolecules has proven that a common mineral can drastically slow down the buildup of Lewy bodies.
Putting a halt on your Parkinson’s Disease!
Best of all, this mineral is dirt cheap and can be found in most supermarkets.
After comparing zinc-rich brains with zinc-poor brains, researchers drew three conclusions:
1. Zinc increases the amount of human serum albumin in the brain. This is the most abundant protein in the human body and has previously been associated with the prevention of the accumulation of alpha-synuclein.
2. There was less unhealthy alpha-synuclein accumulation in zinc-rich brains.
3. The researchers concluded that the human serum albumin guided zinc into the brain and prevented the buildup of alpha-synuclein.
This research suggests zinc removes one of the strongest risk factors for Parkinson’s disease.
However, until this relationship is fully established, the researchers do not recommend zinc supplements. They recommend natural intake of this mineral instead, through foods high in zinc, including oysters, shrimp, sardines, beef, pork, turkey, eggs, milk, cheese, yogurt, beans, oats, brown rice, pumpkin seeds, peanuts, and dark chocolate.
If you have already begun to develop Parkinson’s disease, eating zinc is not enough. However, you’ll be thrilled to hear that thousands of readers have stopped the progression of their Parkinson’s after applying a few simple lifestyle changes explained here…
