Question


Is Melatonin a helpful aid forperson diagnosed with Parkinsons?

Answer
Parkinsons is a degenerative disease and it primarily affects the part of the brain that controls movement.

Research has shown that melatonin can be beneficial to people with parkinsons because since parkinsons affects a person's circadan rythym and melatonin naturally helps to stabilize the circadan rythym. It has been proven to be of benefit.

First of all i would advice you tell your doctor before you attempt to use it.

Don't mix drugs with your melatonin supplement except your doctor says so.
