Hi, I am seeing all the posts about Vitamin B1 and Niacin. I currently take a dopamine agonist mirapexin and a MAOI Selegeline low dose plus vitamin E, CoenzymQ as prescribed by my neurologist. I also recently started taking vitamin D. Could someone advise how much B1 and B3 to try and what time of day, and could it interact with anything I am taking? I also recently tried a week taking probiotic p128 but it made me feel awful and I am convinced symptoms got worse.
Vitamin B1 and B3 question: Hi, I am seeing... - Cure Parkinson's
For vitamin B1 here are some places to look for guidance:
Website of Dr. Antonio Costantini and Associates highdosethiamine.org/
Mayo says, "Recent research suggests that even high doses of CoQ10 don't seem to improve symptoms in people with Parkinson's disease."
I’ve also read that but my neurologist had already prescribed it and said it’s important - who knows!
Vitamin B2 or Riboflavin can speed up your MAO enzyme activity and thus Dopamine gets broken more rapidly. B2 is the main Co-factor in breaking down dopamine, serotonin and norepinephrine.As a result of fast MAO activity, more oxidative stress and hydrogen peroxide will be produced which can facilitate more neurodegeneration.
Thankyou can you just explain why you mention B2, is there a link to the B1 and B3 in my question ?
