How to prevent Parkinson's disease

Cómo prevenir el mal de Parkinson

Evil or Parkinson's disease is caused by irreversible damage of 80% of nerve cells located in the brain, these are stunted by failure in the production of dopamine. This chemical is vitally important and very necessary, because it influences the function of muscle movement, balance and coordination.

Parkinson's disease attacks the central nervous system functions, preventing him from the person controlling their movements, making them erratic and shaky. It is speculated that disease can be acquired by access to water contaminated with chemicals; the use of some pesticides can also generate evil, so it is recommended the use of gloves, goggles and masks when using these substances.

Dr. G. Webster Ross, a neurologist at the Guerra veterans in Honolulu medical centre, conducted an experiment to 8,000 men, Ross showed in his study that consume 5 to 6 cups of coffee daily prevented disease develops because caffeine increases the levels of dopamine in the brain. What is not clear yet is whether the active compound of coffee prevents disease or only stops her.

The Parkinson is related to age and accelerates in certain people. This acceleration may be due to genetic factors, the performance of unknown toxic and above all an oxidizing effect, caused by an excess of the attack of free radicals feared neurons. I.e., neurons degenerate because their intracellular structures are oxidized. This makes one of the main strategies of prevention increase the level of antioxidants in the brain, what you get with some food.

Products that help treat Parkinson's

Te verde (2)

  • Green tea: It shows signs of help against Parkinson's disease. Research by Dr. Baolu Zhao indicate that green tea polyphenols protect dopamine-producing neurons. In a similar study in the National University College of medicine in Seoul, met the neuroprotective agent that is found in green tea to cut the rate of neuronal death in half when given to mice.
  • Foods rich in vitamin E: Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that may help protect the brain cells. Fats of vegetable origin are rich in this vitamin like wheat germoil, olive oil or sunflower oil. Other foods are very rich in this vitamin are sunflower seeds, hazelnuts and almonds. Other vegetable sources possess smaller quantities but they are adequate as the asparagus, mangoes and Avocados.
  • Foods rich in vitamin C: Vitamin C also functions as a powerful antioxidant and helps to protect the cells responsible for the production of dopamine. Citrus fruits are rich in this vitamin such as oranges, lemons and Grapefruits. Other plants containing this vitamin are:
  • Spinach.
  • Bananas.
  • Melons.
  • Watermelon.
  • Pineapple.
  • PEAR.
  • Papaya.
  • Barley.
  • Garlic.
  • Mora.
  • Celery.
  • Strawberries.
  • Raspberries.
  • Blueberries.
  • Grapes.
  • Figs
  • Potatoes.
  • Custard apples.
  • Grenades.
  • Coconut.
  • Gingko Biloba: It is known as a miraculous herb. Ginkgo Biloba is so beneficial to the brain because it helps to increase your blood circulation. The increase in blood flow increases the number of nerve cells in the brain that dopamine can be reached. Furthermore, in a study of 2012 at the National Institute of Neurology and Neurosurgery in Mexico, a patented extract of ginkgo leaf on animal models with Parkinson's disease was distributed. The use of the extract showed effects neuroprotective and neurorrecuperadores against damage to the midbrain dopamine neurons and even in locomotion. The researchers stated, "these studies suggest to Gingko Biloba as an alternative treatment in Parkinson's disease".

Foods that increase dopamine levels


Foods that help increase our levels of dopamine are: fish (by its Omega 3), eggs, spirulina (both by its tyrosine), sugar beet (by its Betaine and tyrosine), apples (contain quercetin, to prevent Neurodegeneration and increase dopamine), kale (rich in folic acid, triggers the production of dopamine), oil of oregano (have promising effects in mood swings and cravings (, increasing levels of dopamine), bananas, strawberries and Blueberries (tyrosine).
