One of the main negative consequences of Parkinson's disease is the destruction of nerve cells. The latter is concentrated in the area of the brain responsible for movement. German researchers found that the destructive process can be slowed down with the help of vitamin B3. For this purpose they used a sample of the epidermis of the volunteers suffering from illness. According to The Daily Mail, The borrowed materials as they are transformed into neurons.
In the genetic code of these cells was discovered GBA, which is typical for persons suffering from Parkinson's. This gene contributes to the tremor, constant fatigue and muscle rigidity. He also partly slows down motor function. The problem lies in the mitochondria, which in the samples are wrong.
During the research it was decided to apply vitamin B3 in the cells. He helped create new mitochondria. In this regard, increased energy flow. The following test was conducted on flies that were given the same B3. Surprisingly, the symptoms of Parkinson's, those did not appear much longer. Moreover, killed a smaller number of neurons.
