Studies Say 50% of Those With Parkinson’s Experience Depression.
That statistic probably isn’t a huge surprise. Any neuro-health diagnosis is tough news to take.
What’s interesting is, those diagnosed often experience these symptoms long before any Parkinson’s symptoms show.
That’s because Parkinson’s (and diseases like it) affect chemicals in your brain. These changes may lead to mood disorders like depression, anxiety or lack of motivation.
Depression can also intensify other Parkinson’s symptoms.
Fortunately, there’s a natural supplement that may help.
5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) is a natural supplement that has been studied for its potential to help improve the symptoms of depression.
It is a natural derivative of the amino acid tryptophan and scientists believe it increases the level of serotonin, a neurotransmitter in the brain that plays a role in regulating mood.
Not only is 5-HTP known to help those suffering with mood disorders, it’s also shown to help reduce the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.
Studies have also suggested that 5-HTP can increase dopamine levels.
Research has found that 5-HTP may help improve motor function and reduce tremor associated with the neurological condition.
That’s why we carry a specially sourced high quality 5-HTP supplement in our store.
You’ll find it comes in easy to swallow capsules that have been scientifically formulated for potency and absorption.
