    I started the B1 thiamine HCl high dose therapy about 6 weeks ago and have been regular ever since. Parkinson’s thiamine HCl on Facebook is a great resource. I take 3 grams twice a day and also take magnesium l-threonate, 2 capsules twice a day which gives 144 mg of elemental magnesium that is needed to help the B1 cross the blood brain barrier. I can do things I had not been able to do for quite a while like shuffling a deck of cards.

    After reading these posts my partner tried prunes and it worked! I had suggested a stool softener but he was concerned as the container warned about not taking if you have trouble swallowing which is common with PD.
