You hit a certain age, and there’s not a heckuva lot you fear anymore.
Not even DEATH itself can scare ya.
You want a piece of me, punk??? Just you TRY it!
But the very notion of Parkinson’s disease can send a chill down your spine…
Because it’s NOT just a disease.
It’s a sentence to being TRAPPED inside a body that just won’t listen to you anymore.
Scarier still, most docs still don’t fully understand who’s at risk and who isn’t.
So, it seems like it can strike anyone… anywhere… anytime.
But today, I’m going to help make it a fair fight.
I’ve got a way to spot a key warning sign of Parkinson’s risk… and then a way to turn it around…
BEFORE it has a chance to wreck you.
This is gonna sound a little WEIRD. And it might even be a little ALARMING, too.
But I promise you, it’ll all make sense in a moment.
If you have arthritis, especially the “wear and tear” form, then you’re at risk for Parkinson’s.
OA in the knees or hips will raise your odds by 55%…
While arthritis in OTHER joints will boost your risk by 30-40%.
So, yeah, if you have THAT pain… then this is one MORE thing you gotta worry about.
But don’t worry TOO much.
There’s also an OPPORTUNITY hidden in here…
A little chance to cheat so you can not only AVOID Parkinson’s… but maybe even get that joint pain under control, too.
Because believe it or not, the reason for this link could be that they’re potentially caused… at least to some extent… by the same thing.
As your joints CRUMBLE with osteoarthritis… inflammation levels RISE. It’s one of the KEY reasons (but not the ONLY reason) for that pain and stiffness.
Now, if it were a brief injury, the inflammation would come, and then it would go… and then you’d be done with it.
Think of it as a cartoon thumb after being by a hammer -- red, swollen, and throbbing at first, then back to normal in the next scene.
But that’s NOT what happens in arthritis. The inflammation is a CONSTANT.
It NEVER goes back to normal… and CONTINUES to crank out inflammatory compounds to spread it EVERYWHERE…
Including into the brain, where we know chronic inflammation can be a component of Parkinson’s disease (and lots of other bad stuff, too).
That means fighting inflammation COULD be the key to beating BOTH some of the pain and stiffness in the joints… and reducing the Parkinson’s risk spotted by the new study.
There’s a promising compound called PQQ (or pyrroloquinoline quinone), which has shown to reduce arthritis inflammation. And, wouldn’t you know it, it may also help protect against neurodegenerative diseases including Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.
Some of the best studies so far have combined PQQ with resveratrol and quercetin for maximum all-over benefits… such as helping to restore the mitochondrial function that slows as we grow older.
That energizes cells… and can give you an edge against aging and all that comes with the turf.
In addition, avoid inflammatory foods as well as processed foods with toxins for maximum protection for both body and mind.
