Never get Parkinson's disease
Did you know the vast majority of people with Parkinson's could have prevented their disease? It's true. In fact, science is now proving that you never have to get this terrible disease. I've shown you in previous articles ways to prevent the disease. And now there's new evidence that a popular nutrient can stop cells from mutating into Parkinson's.
Parkinson's disease starts when genetic variants cause proteins to misfold in your sensitive neurons. Misfolding is an abnormal mutation in the cell. When they misfold, your neuron machinery can't properly process the proteins. This eventually can result in tangled clumps of toxic protein build up. This build up will eventually kill the cell and cause Parkinson's.
New research shows you can stop these proteins from misfolding. The researchers in this study concentrated on a cell model with a mutation of a particular gene. This resulted in misfolding of the protein. They found that the omega-3 fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) protects the cells from the defect.
Interestingly, the same research team had previously found that DHA induces the naturally occurring molecule neuroprotectin D1. This molecule promotes brain cell survival. It is capable of rescuing dying cells with the folding mutation.

That means this omega-3 fat may protect your brain cells from abnormal mutations — and from Parkinson's.
DHA is a very important fatty acid. Mother's milk is rich with DHA to help the baby's developing brain. Fish oil also contains a lot of DHA. If you're taking Healthy Resolve, you're getting a rich dose of DHA every day. If you're not taking Healthy Resolve yet, you can order it by following this link.
If you're a vegetarian and don't want to take fish oil, you can get DHA in the product Neuromins. Its DHA comes from sea algae. The High Potency Neuromins (200 mg) contains almost as much DHA as the daily dose of Healthy Resolve (220 mg).ÿ High Potency Neuromins is available at most health food stores and on the Internet.
Yours for better health and medical freedom,
