Fish Oil-Derived Omega-3s May Offer Effective Treatment For Mild Psychotics

February 3, 2010: 06:44 AM EST
Long-chain omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids found in fish oil supplements reduce the risk of progression to psychotic disorders among high-risk individuals, a study has found. Conducted by researchers in Australia and Austria, the placebo-controlled clinical trial involved 81 schizophrenics. Over 12 weeks, 41 patients took daily fish oil capsules containing 1.2 grams of omega-3s. The others took a placebo. By the end of the study, two in the omega-3 group and 11 in the placebo group had transitioned to psychotic disorders. Researchers concluded that long-chain omega-3s “may offer a safe and efficacious strategy” for treating young people with mild psychotic symptoms.
