Iranian researchers performed a study to evaluate the effects of a combined supplementation of omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E on Parkinson’s disease. The clinical trial was conducted with 60 patients randomly assigned into two groups receiving either omega-3 fatty acids plus vitamin E (30 patients) or a placebo (30 patients) for 12 weeks. A questionnaire was used and recorded before and after the supplementation period. Additionally, several metabolic factors were evaluated. After 12 weeks, the questionnaire showed significantly improved results for the group receiving the combined supplementation compared to the placebo group. Additionally, inflammation parameters and insulin levels decreased significantly, and the function of Beta cells in the pancreas improved. Overall, this study demonstrated that the simultaneous intake of omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E has diverse favorable effects in people with Parkinson’s disease. More details can be found in the study.
