The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research - Parkinson’s Disease and Diet: A Practical Guide
"There is no one diet for Parkinson’s disease (PD). But what you eat may affect how well your medication works and ease Parkinson’s non-movement symptoms, such as constipation or low blood pressure. For people with PD, doctors recommend a balanced diet, with plenty of fruits and vegetables, which contain antioxidants. Antioxidants clear out free radicals, substances that are harmful to cells."
