I attach a link to a scientific paper that was posted to a page on FB called 'Livebetterparkinsons'.
The original post was trumpeting this as a major breakthrough. A little checking shows it's a product based on broad/fava beans which we've known for a long time contain a source of natural dopamine like mucona beans. However I thought that ingested in the usual way it didn't cross the blood brain barrier very easily...
These Spanish scientists seem to be claiming that this compound not only delivers dopamine to the brain but it seems to have neuroprotective abilities and may slow or halt the progress of the disease. With no side effects. Hallelujah!
Except (in case you can't already tell by my tone) I'm sceptical. I seem to have a natural source of cynicism that has no problem crossing any barriers!.
If it was that good surely it would go to a much bigger trial get full FDA/NICE approval and so on. Instead if you follow the link you can buy the pills at E65 a bottle. However I'm willing to be open minded.
I'm new to this - dx at the beginning of this year and still comparatively minor symptoms.
What do you much more knowledgeable people think?
