In this study, the authors were looking into B12 and other B vitamins as preventative, and for treatment of, Parkinson’s. With, of course, the results being inconclusive when you read through this study.
Quoting the article:
“A high baseline intake of vitamin B12 is linked to lower risk of developing Parkinson’s disease (PD), new research suggests.”
One flaw in this study, in addition to the fact that the cause for Parkinsons wasn’t being addressed as it is unknown to medical research and science, was the sources of the B12 used in this study.
Quote: “Dietary sources of vitamin B12 include poultry, meat, fish, and dairy products; however, the main sources in this study were multivitamins/supplements and enriched foods such as cereals, said Flores.”
The point is that these sources of B12 (animal protein) aren’t well utilized or absorbed by the body, and the main source of B12 in multivitamins are methyl and/or cyanocobalamin, which aren’t complete when it comes to addressing nervous system conditions.
Of note here is that the public medical science attributes the possible cause of Parkinson’s to an enzyme issue:
Quote: “In addition to being involved in the regulation of homocysteine levels, vitamin B12 may help regulate leucine-rich repeat kinase 2 (LRRK2), an enzyme implicated in the pathogenesis of PD”
The right B12 (a combination of methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin) is extremely helpful when it comes to a host of conditions, especially neurological conditions. Most of the population is very deficient in this vital nutrient.”If the medical system were handed the tools and training needed, they would discover that the true foundation of Parkinson’s is the toxic heavy metals mercury, aluminum, and copper interacting with each other in the brain and oxidizing there, causing a corrosive runoff that spreads into adjacent connective tissue in the brain. The toxic heavy metals’ discharge injures neurons, diffuses electrical impulses and starves neurotransmitters of the electricity and fuel they need in order to stay healthy and active.” (@medicalmedium) For more detailed information on this very important topic refer to Brain Saver by Anthony William.– Dr. Sherri Greene
