Cinnamon and Parkinson's Disease

Cinnamon and Parkinson’s Disease

Could cinnamon help halt Parkinson’s Disease?

The spice cinnamon has been shown to reduce fasting blood glucose, making it a contender in the fight against diabetes.

Now a study has shown that a chemical, converted from the spice by the liver, could be used to treat neural disorders such as Parkinson’s disease. This chemical when it enters the brain stops the loss of the proteins that help protect cells. In addition, it protects neurons and improves motor functions.

Researchers commented in the Journal of Neuroimmune Pharmacology that this could be one of the safest approaches to halt disease progression in Parkinson’s patients.

While one in six patients are diagnosed before age 50, Parkinson’s is generally considered a disease that targets older adults, affecting one of every 100 persons over the age of 60.
