Article

Therapeutic efficacy of the plant neuroprotector Phytomix-40 in Parkinson’s disease was demonstrated. This preparation consists of the components from extracts of 40 plants, including some adaptogens (ginseng, eleutherococcus, Rhodiola rosea, etc.). The preparation normalized immune, antioxidant, and hormonal parameters in patients. The neuroprotective plant adaptogen can be used in complex therapy for Parkinson’s disease for improving its efficacy.
