January 13 2017. A study reported on December 23, 2016 in Biology Open suggests a benefit for niacin (vitamin B3) in the treatment of early stage Parkinson’s disease. The research involved fruit flies with a mutation which results in a condition similar to human Parkinson’s disease. L. Miguel Martins and colleagues at the University of Leicester fed the flies a diet supplemented with niacin, which is a precursor to nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD), a coenzyme needed for the generation of energy in the cells’ mitochondria. NAD also helps protect neurons from degeneration.
(NaturalHealth365) It is no secret that sugary drinks, sweets, and other processed foods containing high fructose corn syrup are detrimental to your health. The pervasiveness of high fructose corn syrup in the Americans diet has even been blamed for the epidemic of obesity, type 2 diabetes and related diseases. But now, scientists at the University of California, Los Angeles, have started to uncover the exact reasons why fructose is linked to so many ills.

Exposure to pesticides and other chemicals is linked to an increased risk of developing Parkinson's disease, according to a fresh look at some past research.
The dangers associated with pesticide exposure are much more far-reaching than previously thought, as illustrated by a shocking study recently published in the journal Neurotoxicology and Teratology. It turns out that chronic exposure to Monsanto's Roundup formula, the active ingredient of which is glyphosate, as well as too many other common pesticides and herbicides is one of the primary environmental factors responsible for causing neurodegenerative disorders in humans.
In an article published online on August 1, 2012 in the journal Neurology®, Canadian researchers report a benefit for caffeine in movement control in men and women with Parkinsons disease.
Research conducted at Michigan State University discovered that curcumin, a compound found in turmeric, helps prevent clumping of alpha-synuclein, a protein whose aggregation is one of the first steps in Parkinson's disease.
