oil supplements prevent mental illness; safe
and effective alternative to antipsychotic
An important new study published in the Archives
of General Psychiatry reveals that fish
oil supplements beat mental illness.
The study involved 81 people deemed to be
at high risk for psychosis. The randomized,
placebo-controlled study provided fish oil
supplements to half the study subjects for
just 12 weeks (the other half received placebo
supplements). The results? While 11 people
in the placebo group developed a psychotic
disorder, only 2 in the fish oil group did.
study was relatively small, it helps demonstrate
the wide-ranging benefits of omega-3 fatty
acids, which are thought to be the key nutritional
factor in fish oils. We already know
that omega-3 fatty acids / polyunsaturated
fatty acids (PUFAs) help protect people against
cardiovascular disease. We also know they
can play a role in preventing diabetes and
cancer. It's little surprise that
they also protect against mental illness,
given the importance of healthy fatty acids
for the functioning of the nervous system.
supposed to keep taking drugs, says Big Pharma
The drug companies, of course, are terrified
that people might learn this truth. They want
to keep patients on expensive, patented antipsychotic
drugs while discrediting "natural remedies"
like fish oils or nutritional supplements.
The entire war being waged against nutrition
and supplements is, of course, nothing more
than the pharmaceutical industry trying to
protect its own turf by destroying the competition.
let's face it: For (virtually) every popular
pharmaceutical on the market, there's a nutritional
supplement that works better (and that's also
safer and more affordable). (...)
quality fish oils
Of course, when it comes to fish oils, don't
settle for just any cheap fish oil supplement.
Many of the cheaper store-bought brands are
largely made of olive oil filler combined
with a tiny amount of fish oil extract. Search
out quality supplements or oils from companies
like Moxxor, Nordic Naturals or Carlson Labs.
