I have  heard this product works well in early stage parkinson's (stages 1-3). It has shown little success in stages 4 & 5.

For the first few weeks on it your symptoms usually worsen as your body becomes used to the product. After that, the symptoms usually get better. 

I have only seen a few studies on it and they do seem positive. 

It may be worth a try. 

I hope that helps and please keep me posted.

There are 3 main ingredients that help with Parkinson's symptoms:

1) (NAC) also known as N-acetyl-cysteine. This increases the Dopamine binding. Which means that Dopamine will bind to the receptors to a greater extent allowing for more Dopamine to be used in he brain to relieve symptoms.

2) Green Tea Extract. The chemical in Green Tea Extract, epicatechin gallate, is used to reduce free radicals and inflammation. Free radicals are molecules that get into our system and interfere with the production or longevity of certain substances, in this case it is Dopamine. It is also believed, but has not been proven, That ECG may may have a neuroprotective factor associated with it. This means that it may have the ability to protect certain cells from being broken down.

3) L-tyrosine. This product has shown to increase the levels of Tyrosine in the Cerebral Spinal Fluid, the fluid that runs through the brain and spinal cord, which can increase Dopamine turnover. This means more Dopamine will be available.
