Cinnamon for Parkinson’s Disease

Taking cinnamon supplements can actually reverse the brain changes that happen with Parkinson’s Disease. A recent study published in the Journal of Neuroimmune Pharmacology goes so far as to say that cinnamon is one of the safest approaches to halt the progression of Parkinson’s. Cinnamon is metabolized in the liver into the natural drug-form of sodium benzoate. Big Pharma patents sodium benzoate as a drug treatment for hepatic metabolic defects (with side effects of course). Cinnamon is naturally anti-ammonemic and is a natural antimicrobial – without the Big Pharma drug effects. The two forms of cinnamon in the US are the cheaper cassia cinnamon and the purer, more expensive Ceylon cinnamon. Both types work just as well but the cheaper cinnamon cassia contains coumarin, which is hepatotoxic. Feeding, ground cinnamon to mice stopped the loss of Parkin and DJ-1 proteins that protect neurons, normalize neurotransmitter levels, and improve motor functions. Works well in humans too!

Totally preventable and treatable in my opinion.
