The goal is to organize and have a list of the most studied supplement in PD and to sort by study count. This way we have a reason why a supplement is popular.

Post your supplement with a link to the study.

Here is my initial work.

Please continue! This is such an excellent idea! I have been researching each supplement and vitamin one by one but I have a long long ways to go. Getting people to contribute to your endeavor would be so wonderful!

There are a number of studies related to Thiamine(B1)

Just did a bit of googling to find these studies. I'm unsure if its comprehensive and/or if there are duplicates.

Any info when one should take all these supplements? In what order? On empty stomach? What supplements go with each other and which ones do not?

Does thiamine cross the blood-brain barrier? The quote below is confusing?

"Free thiamine is not lipophilic and cannot cross the blood-brain barrier by simple diffusion. Transport of blood thiamine to the brain parenchyma is carrier-mediated and it is a slow process [37].Jun 12, 2008"

What about Thiamine HCL? This is the one most of us take

This is also confusing

"Curcumin is a hydrophobic polyphenol extracted from the dried rhizomes of Curcuma longa L. and shows good potential for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases and brain tumors. The blood-brain barrier (BBB) is the major obstacle for the delivery of curcumin into the brain, limiting its therapeutic potential.Jul 30, 2020"

I believe the effect may be activated if takenwith black pepper...

Niacin study - Augusta GAIt should be noted that although they used niacin, NR and NMN are possibilities as well. All work in a similar way to increase NAD.

Coffee : not a supplement but effective like a good supplement. Coffee cherry (the husks) cascara looks like it might be even better than coffee.
