Restore Gold is rapidly becoming the go-to medication for Parkinson’s disease. It has increasingly swept the market off it’s feet by containing seven very specific compounds in one capsule. For decades researchers have focused on compounds to help reduce Parkinson’s in patients but Restore Gold has done one better and brought all the seven much needed natural ingredients together to help reduce Parkinson’s symptoms in it’s sufferers.
Listed below are the ingredients present in our capsules and their benefits in helping people suffering from Parkinson’s.
Tauroursodeoxycholic acid (TUDCA)
In recent years scientists have done a lot of research on different compounds and elements in order to understand their roles with regards to Parkinsons. A groundbreaking discovery was made in 2013 proving that there is a compound called UDCA which helps restore mitochondrial functions in those suffering from Parkinson’s. When UDCA passes through the liver it combines with Taurine and becomes the famous TUDCA. TUDCA is also used in liver restore supplements and has liver regeneration properties. We believe TUDCA to be one of the most important ingredients in our Restore Gold supplements due to which there is 350mg of it in each capsule. The TUDCA present in these supplements will help restore mitochondrial function and prevent depletion of dopamine producing cells in our nervous system. According to a lot of research TUDCA has not proved to cure Parkinson’s disease but it does help delay the neurodegeneration process and slow down the disease from spreading.
L-tyrosine is known to improve dopamine levels due to which scientists have been showing interest in it during Parkinson’s research and studies. It has very few side effects. One study concludes, “The other (from 1989) concludes that “For some patients, 3 years of L-tyrosine treatment was followed by better clinical results and many fewer side effects than with L-DOPA or dopamine agonists”. Due to which we have added 410mg of L-tyrosine in our supplements to help increase the dopamine levels in patients with Parkinson’s.
N-acetyl-cysteine is one of the best antioxidant compounds which helps improve dopamine transporter (DAT) binding in people with Parkinson’s. It is one of the seven key ingredients of our Restore Gold capsules, and each capsule contains 410 mg of NAC in it. NAC helps produce glutathione naturally in your brain as Parkinson’s causes a deficiency of glutathione in it’s patients. One study states that “The results suggest NAC may positively affect the dopaminergic system in patients with PD, with corresponding positive clinical effects,”. “This is an exciting study that suggests a natural molecule such as NAC can help improve dopamine function and symptoms in Parkinson’s patients.” Many other studies are slowly proving NAC to be a key ingredient to help reduce the symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease.
Green Tea Leaf
Green Tea Extract is one of the most famous compounds when it comes to being correlated with a decrease in memory loss or dementia. Researchers believe it to have positive effects on people with Parkinson’s as well. Green Tea is an antioxidant and it contains polyphenols which protect humans against age related issues. Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) is known to penetrate brain tissues and protect the brain in Parkinson’s disease. It is one of the main compounds found in Green Tea Extract. Many studies have been done on this around the globe from Israel to China and almost all of them proved that the EGCG present in Green tea had anti-inflammatory properties and prevented the loss of dopaminergic cells in Parkinson’s patients. Green tea also helps in reducing COMT the dopamine killing enzymes in Parkinson’s patients which helps sustain dopamine levels and slows down the disease from spreading rapidly.
So in our Restore Gold supplements we have decided to capitalize on green tea’s neuroprotective effects in patients with Parkinson’s Disease and added 220mg of it in each capsule.
Grape Seed Extract
Grape Seed Extract is known to enhance mitochondrial function in people with Parkinson’s. It also allows the brain to remove toxic aggregates from it hence improving the immunity of the nervous system. One study shows, “Besides polyphenols, grape skin and seeds also contain anti-oxidative components, including proanthocyanidin and quercetin, which may actively contribute to protecting against oxidative stress and mediated tissue injury.
Oxidative stress is an imbalance between the production of free radicals and the ability of cells to detoxify them. These free radicals, or reactive oxygen species, are harmful to the cells and are associated with a number of diseases, including Parkinson’s disease.” So the 65mg of Grape seed extract in Restore Gold helps patients of PD by improving their mitochondrial function and reducing oxidative stress.
Carnitine, produced by the kidneys and liver is a molecule present in most cells of the body, which helps carry long chain fatty acids through the mitochondrial membrane where they are oxidized. Studies suggest that the supplement Acetyl l-carnitine can prevent Pasrkinsons as it’s caused by mitochondrial dysfunction and oxidative damage.
Researchers have proved carnitine to be a neuroprotectant as it protects cells from mitochondrial dysfunction, oxidative stress and aggregation of alpha-synuclein proteins. Our own research has shown that an adequate dose of the mitochondrial nutrients can play a major role in preventing Parkinson’s disease. Due to which we have added 110mg of Acetyl L-Carnitine in our Restore Gold Capsules.
Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA)
Alpha lipoic acid is an antioxidant that is naturally produced within the body. It has many therapeutic benefits from reducing inflammation to fighting oxidation in the body. It also helps in protecting liver function and reducing memory loss and cognition. According to research it also helps in producing cellular energy and reducing toxins and free radicals in the brain by blistering levels of glutathione and vitamin E. We have added 110mg of ALA in our Restore Gold capsules to help deliver neuroprotectants to the nervous system in people fighting against Parkinson’s.
A lot of research has been done on zinc with regards to neurobiology and it’s potential benefits in it. Studies have shown that it plays a role in the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s disease. Parkinson’s occurs by the loss of dopamine producing cells in the nervous system. The enzyme, superoxide dismutase (SODCu2Zn2), is found in high concentrations in the substantia nigra where it protects dopamine making neurons. The 50mg Zinc present in our supplements helps in increasing SODCu2Zn2. Studies have proved the requirement of Zinc for many neuro functions including the protection of dopamine inducing neurons.
