Studies Show that Ashwagandha Helped Improved Parkinson’s in Mice by Helping Normalized Dopamine Levels While Reducing Free Radical Damage
Listen to This Post
Researchers are finding out with studies such as Ashwagandha for Parkinson’s what more successful health care professionals already know – but the question is, is anyone, including yourself going to do anything about it?
Ashwagandha as a prevention method habit?
What Causes Parkinson’s Disease?
Parkinson’s disease occurs when nerve cells, or neurons, in an area of the brain that controls movement become impaired and/or die. Normally, these neurons produce an important brain chemical known as dopamine. When the neurons die or become impaired, they produce less dopamine, which causes the movement problems of Parkinson’s. Scientists still do not know what causes cells that produce dopamine to die.
People with Parkinson’s also lose the nerve endings that produce norepinephrine, the main chemical messenger of the sympathetic nervous system, which controls many automatic functions of the body, such as heart rate and blood pressure. The loss of norepinephrine might help explain some of the non-movement features of Parkinson’s, such as fatigue, irregular blood pressure, decreased movement of food through the digestive tract, and sudden drop in blood pressure when a person stands up from a sitting or lying-down position.
Many brain cells of people with Parkinson’s contain Lewy bodies, unusual clumps of the protein alpha-synuclein. Scientists are trying to better understand the normal and abnormal functions of alpha-synuclein and its relationship to genetic mutations that impact Parkinson’s disease and Lewy body dementia.
Although some cases of Parkinson’s appear to be hereditary, and a few can be traced to specific genetic mutations, in most cases the disease occurs randomly and does not seem to run in families. Many researchers now believe that Parkinson’s disease results from a combination of genetic factors and environmental factors such as exposure to toxins.
Toxins and genetic factors… a common theme. But in terms of genetics most genetics and stem cell researcher Bruce Lipton found are based on your habits, the habitual things you do, the habitual things you don’t do and the habitual own environments you live in ( and you get also argue habitual mind state and emotional state abiding)…
What happens if you put dirt and sugar into your car’s gas tank? how about some coffee? Maybe an espresso shot into your gas tank? You think you’ll run faster? lol no but your car doesn’t like to drink those things and will likely have a breakdown. Will your body only like certain things and that has things that don’t work well with the body it’s gonna have troubles, problems and a breakdown too.
Also what happens if you don’t put oil in your engine, for example? Engine coolent too… well eventually your car is not going be able to operate very well and it is going to breakdown.
Parkinson’s disease is a neurodegenerative disease involving progressive loss of dopamine neurons. In a mouse model of Parkinson’s, Ashwagandha normalized dopamine levels and reduced free radical damage to brain cells [98, 99].
And succeessfull researchers and healthcare professionals are finding these days a lot of these modern diseases are related to two main factors: 1. is the inclusion into the body of bad destructive substances such as various chemicals, heavy metals, or even imbalances and nutrients. 2. Secondly the other major problem causing factor is a lack of nutrients and as mentioned a lack of balance of nutrients. Actually keep taking too much of one nutrient you can push out the other nutrients.
So smart thing to do because we can do this so much more readily and modern times with the Internet is start to look strategically how to intake the broad spectrum of all the essential nutrients that you need on a daily basis through your foods and also on with supplements. Other issue with the foods is that foods are considered to be 95% less nutritious versus 100 years ago as researchers have found at least in terms of minerals. And as Linus Pauling and Joel Wallach have found through their remarkable research, most diseases and modern times can be linked back to a nutrient deficiency particularly a mineral deficiency. and for those who don’t believe that you can simply reference the concept of a nutritional deficiency to what you probably learned still in your history books about how English sailors who have scurvy disease came to Florida and ate some citrus, probably oranges, maybe some tangerines, and poof their scurvy was gone.
And when you have studies that are able to identify particular nutrients that are exceptionally excellent at helping boost the health of various parts of your body in particular then you want to make note especially if you have been diagnosed or sense weakness in the particular area or for a particular functionality in the body. And here you see Ashwagandha having benefits for the boosting of brain health in counteracting Parkinson’s related symptoms. [98, 99].
This is fantastic to know in addition to the many other benefits of Ashwagandha supplementation. In fact there so many powerful benefits of Ashwagandha as a supplement that I personally take Ashwagandha myself as a habit daily. Also our Ashwagandha is the best I’ve ever tried in that organic Ashwagandha is used and organic farming is said to increase the nutrients of a plant or food by up to 70% and on top of that we added a nutrient absorption booster with the black pepper booster.
See our Ashwagandha Supplements here. Read about the benefits, they are tremendous here. You may be interested in the concept of using Ashwagandha as a habit, but you’ll want to check with your knowledgeable healthcare professional to see that’s okay with what’s going on in your body in combination with any other things that you are taking.
