Getting ready to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day? Start the day off with a Shamrock shake. Some studies suggest that a type of nutrient known as anthocyanins may be beneficial for people with Parkinson’s. Anthocyanins are found in fruits and vegetables, especially dark leafy greens and berries, which are the main ingredients in the Shamrock shake.
