The Role of Micronutrients in Parkinson’s Disease
Madalynn J. Eads, Rachael Harmon, Hannah G. Waters
Parkinson’s Disease is defined as the progressive neurodegenerative disorder that primarily affects dopamine-producing neurons in the brain. Micronutrients, such as Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Folic Acid, and Zinc, have been found to help delay the onset of Parkinson’s-related symptoms. Therefore, the purpose of this presentation is to explore the relationship between various micronutrients and the pathophysiology of Parkinson’s Disease. A concept map technique will be utilized to demonstrate the specific mechanism of action for each micronutrient and the interaction across micronutrients in Parkinson’s Disease.
