Hemp Seeds & Parkinson's

I've been on this health kick lately and have been eating a lot of different kinds of nuts. I've come across one called Hemp seeds. Apparently they're not really grown in the U.S. but it's available in other parts of the world. Doing an internet search on hemp seeds mentioned that the hemp seeds may help in delaying the neurologic effects of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases.

Upon seeing this, I've been curious to have my Mom try it. She's currently taking medication for Parkinson's. She's been diagnosed since 1999. I'm curious whether anyone here has heard of it. I'm trying to find out if it would interfere with her current medication.

Scientifically, I don't see how it could help.

Re: Hemp Seeds & Parkinson's

Thanks. Was just checking to see if anyone else had heard the same claims. Incidentally my Mom loved the seeds but hasn't taken them with any regularity for me to form a conclusion either way.

Re: Hemp Seeds & Parkinson's

Hemp seed, like most seed and nuts, contain omega fatty acids. Some recent studies have found a protective effect against Parkinsons from a diet rich in omega fatty acids. Obviously, it's not necessary to get omega fatty acids from hemp seeds as there are so many other sources including fish.
