Potential ‘Underwater’ Breakthrough for Parkinson’s?!
Parkinson’s disease can make daily life extremely difficult.
The tremors, difficulty standing, and involuntary movements are just a few of the debilitating symptoms that can interfere with daily activities.
And with no cure in sight, the countless Americans facing this disease head-on each day are still looking for some RELIEF!
Well, today I’m here to share some good news…
Researchers in India have unlocked a potential ‘underwater’ breakthrough that could eventually be a valuable weapon in the fight against Parkinson’s.
Here’s what they found.
A team of researchers in India have found that spirulina can help improve symptoms related to Parkinson’s.
Spirulina is a blue-green algae that grows in both fresh and saltwater… and is believed to be one of the oldest life forms on Earth.
While algae may not seem appetizing, spirulina is packed with antioxidants and nutrients – making it a potent superfood. Research has found it to be beneficial for blood sugar control, gut health, and even cholesterol.
And now, thanks to new lab and animal studies, researchers have found that spirulina could also one day be a potent weapon against Parkinson’s.

This Food Could Be Growing Deadly Tumors
This Food Could Be Growing Deadly Tumors
Are we literally FEEDING cancer cells by putting this one food on our dinner plates?
This is important. THIS one food could be growing cancer cells.
And here’s where it gets interesting… as soon as we STOP eating it, the opposite happens: cancer cells STARVE to death — and die out by the thousands.
Skeptical? See the evidence here.
The research team exposed fruit flies to paraquat – a toxic chemical widely used as an herbicide – to induce Parkinson’s-like symptoms.
However, after treating the flies with spirulina, they experienced an improvement in locomotor activity. Locomotor activity is your body’s ability to move and function smoothly and properly, which decreases significantly in Parkinson’s.
Researchers believe this is due to an anti-inflammatory compound found in spirulina called C-phycocyanin (C-PC).
Multiple studies have found that an abnormal accumulation of proteins in the brain can trigger an inflammatory response that damages the brain and makes Parkinson’s symptoms more prevalent.
However, based on the findings of these latest animal studies, researchers believe the C-PC in spirulina works to combat the inflammatory response linked to Parkinson’s.
It’s important to note that these latest findings between spirulina and Parkinson’s are preliminary, and that the studies were not done on humans. However, the results are impressive and researchers hope to expand these studies with humans.
In the meantime, spirulina is a beneficial supplement that can help support a healthy body. Spirulina supplements and powders can be found at your local health food store. Just be sure to only take the recommended dosage listed on the product label.
Finally, if you have a history of Parkinson’s in your family, or are beginning to experience Parkinson’s-like symptoms, be sure to have a conversation with your doctor about a treatment plan that works best for you.
