THE ROLE OF THE MICROBIOME IN PARKINSON'S DISEASE
A substantial amount of research suggests that Parkinson's originates in the gut and not the brain. Parkinson's is a neurodegenerative disorder that results from the accumulation of misfolded proteins known as alpha-synuclein. The misfolding of these proteins can occur in the gut and individuals diagnosed with Parkinson's have a different microbial signature than those found on healthy individuals. The trademark prebiotics found in GUT FOOD AND REPAIR by Biome & Beyond balance an unhealthy microbiome and have been clinically proven to increase the strains of beneficial bacteria found to be deficient in not only Parkinson's but many other neurodegenerative diseases.
