As a degenerative disease for which there is no cure, Parkinson’s disease is naturally distressing for sufferers. Although this heavily researched area of medicine continues to leave many baffled, there are medications and lifestyle recommendations that can improve a patient’s quality of life. No two patients will experience symptoms to the same degree of severity. Typically, someone suffering from Parkinson’s disease may have poor motor control that causes them to shake, neuropsychiatric problems like rapid changes in mood, and autonomic nervous system disruption like not being able to control the urinary system.

Although patients suffering from Parkinson’s disease are not recommended to follow a specific diet, leading experts recommend taking a balanced approach that incorporates plenty of nutritious vitamins. This is extremely beneficial in many ways. Eating a variety of food provides the nervous system and muscles with enough energy to function optimally. Getting a good, well-balanced diet can also aid with metabolising drugs.

Some doctors recommend that Parkinson’s disease patients should take a supplement to ensure they strike the right balance with their diet. Alpha PSP can be particularly beneficial, as it encourages the glucose mobilisation that the nervous and musculoskeletal systems require. This can increase the chances of better muscle control and reduce neurological complaints. By reducing the levels of free radicals that can impact the nervous system, this rice-based health food can aid with both autonomic and voluntary nervous system complaints.

Muscular rigidity is another of Parkinson disease’s common symptoms. It can present as muscles feeling heavy, or patients lacking the ability to extend and reflex muscles at will. While much of this is attributed to motor control at the root of the nervous system, addressing the muscles also is to the patient’s benefit. Alpha PSP supports nucleotide production, which encourages better DNA repair processes at the muscles. To complement this, enhanced neuronal support improves memory and communication between different areas of the brain, making mobility easier.

All patients considering improving their nutrition should also be aware of the lifestyle changes required to support Alpha PSP. This includes reducing salt intake, as high levels of sodium can impact nervous system signals. Finally, staying well hydrated can also improve physical outcomes, making the long-term outlook for Parkinson’s disease patients more positive.
