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.

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