Parkinson's Disease

Parkinson's disease (also known as Parkinson's, Parkinson disease or PD) is a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system that often impairs the sufferer's motor skills, speech, and other functions.

Parkinson's disease belongs to a group of conditions called movement disorders. It is characterized by muscle rigidity, tremor, postural abnormalities, gait abnormalities, a slowing of physical movement (brydakinesia) and a loss of physical movement (akinesia) in extreme cases. The primary symptoms are the results of decreased stimulation of the motor cortex by the basal ganglia. Normally this involves insufficient formation and thus action of dopamine produced in the dopaminergic neurons of the midbrain (specifically the substantia nigra). Secondary symptoms may include high level cognitive dysfunction and subtle language problems. PD is both chronic and progressive.

PD is the most common cause of chronic progressive parkinsonism, a term which refers to the syndrome of tremor, rigidity, bradykinesia and postural instability.

Products are listed in comparative order of importance, although products lower down the list could be the answer according to individual circumstances. If more than one product is mentioned per line, then choose only one.
Generally the more products used from a list will produce better results, i.e. start with what appears to be the most appropriate supplement and then add others until the desired result is achieved.
