Cinnamon For Parkinson

In this study, mice were fed ground cinnamon and the researchers found that this led to changes in processes that underlie Parkinson’s disease.

For a start, there were increases in two important proteins that are known to decrease in Parkinson’s: those proteins are Parkin and DJ-1.

Additionally, it was found that the ground cinnamon resulted in protection of brain neurons, normalisation of neurotransmitters and improved motor function in mice with Parkinson’s disease.

Although Parkinson’s disease affects around one in every 100 people over the age of 60, we know a little, but not enough, about its causes.

Although it’s not a cure and is not a complete answer to the problem of Parkinson’s, these researchers say cinnamon could potentially be one of the safest ways to help slow progression of the disease.
