Using a rat model to understand mechanisms, researchers investigated the effects of proanthocyanidin administration on outcomes associated with Parkinson's disease. Proanthocyanidins are flavonoid compounds that are found in peanuts.
Results showed that proanthocyanidins protected against cellular death and cell damage from reactive oxygen species. Authors concluded that proanthocyanidins may be effective in treating Parkinson's Disease.
