I remain convinced that Parkinsonism is a metabolic disorder with neurological consequences.
Here, we are able to demonstrate mitochondrial insufficiency (lower ATP and NAD+) in individuals with idiopathic PD than age-matched controls. It appears that energy production, on a cellular level, is compromised- not just in the brain, but in the leg and hand muscles, too.

in this case what do you think about supplementing with nmn or nr?
Fascinating and exciting work. Thank you!
I look forward to more info as you move forward with this research!
