Slowing the Decline of
Parkinson’s Patients


Important news for Parkinson’s patients, their families and caregivers:  A recent study has demonstrated that Coenzyme Q10, a simple nonprescription nutritional supplement, slows the deterioration in Parkinson’s patients by 48% in one year of use.  Medications like Sinemet, Mirapex, Requip, Artane, and Stalevo do not treat Parkinson’s disease – they only treat the symptoms of this malady. 

Now there is treatment not for the smoke, but for the fire.  University of California researchers publishing in the Archives of Neurology (an American Medical Association publication) describe the profound effect this simple antioxidant has on slowing Parkinson’s disease.1

The most potent and effective form of CoQ10 is in the liquid Nanonized form.  Studies indicate that by taking it as a liquid in the “Nanonized” form almost doubles the absorption rate; therefore 80 mg would be equivalent to 150 mg in tablet or capsule form.  We have NanoCell-Q from Metagenics.  It is a 30 day supply if you take 1 teaspoon per day (80 mg).  Cost - $35.
