Antixodant and you

One of the causes of Parkinson's disease is over in oxidative damage and low in antioxidant.
-- A natural antioxidant may slow the progression of Parkinson's disease in men, say researchers from the MassGeneral Institute for Neurodegenerative Disease (MGH-MIND) and Harvard School of Public Health.
Scientists examined data from an earlier study and found recently diagnosed Parkinson's patients with the highest levels of urate, an antioxidant, had a significantly slower rate of disease progression during the two-year study period.
Some mineral such as Copper, Selenium and manganese are an important part in antioxidant enzyme production ( SOD or superoxide dismutase) which is a protective mechanism.
