Vitamin D deficiency is common in Parkinson's disease and may increase the risk of hip fracture due to osteoporosis. This risk may be reduced by taking vitamin D.
Vitamin B6 has been reported to improve Parkinson's symptoms. It can be used in conjunction with L-dopa plus carbidopa (Sinemet) or selegiline (Eldepryl, Atapryl), rather than with L-dopa alone.
Supplementing with phosphatidylserine may improved the mood and mental function in patients with Parkinson's disease.
L-tyrosine is the direct precursor to L-dopa and therefore could be an alternative to L-dopa therapy, however, it should not be taken with L-dopa as it may interfere with L-dopa transport to the brain.
1,200 mg a day. In a double-blind trial, coenzyme Q10 given to people with early Parkinsons disease significantly slowed the progression of the disease.
30mgVitamin B2
30 mg three times a day. Studies show, people with Parkinson's disease who had vitamin B2 (riboflavin) deficiency and supplemented with riboflavin experienced improved motor capacity.
In one trial, D-phenylalanine (DPA) supplementation improved motor control and tremors in people with Parkinson's disease. DPA should not be taken with L-dopa as it may interfere with the transport of L-dopa to the brain.
5 mg twice per day. NADH the active form of vitamin B3 in the body has been shown to reduce symptoms and improve brain function in people with Parkinson's disease.
5 grams per day. Preliminary trials have suggested that the amino acid methionine may effectively treat some symptoms of Parkinson's disease.
