Experience of my friend one among us :
I had two glasses of pineapple juice ( rich in Mannitol ) 20 minutes
after taking my PD medication Syndopa CR125 ( L-dopa / C-dopa tabs),
and the result was very good. My medication absorption time reduced
from one and a half hrs to 50 minutes, and the effective 'ON' period
per tablet increased from 2 hrs to almost 3 hrs.
This is giving an additional ON period of 3 hrs per day, which is
extremely benificial to me.
Now I have to try watermelon which has more mannitol I guess.
Mannitol is also believed to be effective in decreasing the rate of
progession of PD and maybe stopping it, as it prevents the formation
of clumps of α-synuclein ( a form of protien) in the brain which PD
patients have. Research is going on in this area.
But we dont have to wait for years of research to have watermelon and pineapple.
I have already felt the difference. You can also try it even though
you are having Kappikachu which is also another form of L-dopa.
please send this to any other PD patients you know.
