I am taking antioxidants regularly for the past three years.

In addition I monitor the blood level of antioxidants every six months. What is your opinion on antioxidants treatment in Parkinson's disease?

Kindly elaborate

There is no evidence that they are helpful and certainly no evidence the cost of checking blood levels is justified.

However, some people think they may help, we lack studies, and most are safe....

So check with your doc!
