Omega 3 fats May Reduce Risk of Psychotic Behavior

Print Friendly, PDF & Email
Many studies have reported that high consumption of omega 3 fats reduce risk of depression and mania (bipolar disorder is a combination of mania and depression).   Omega 3 fats can also reduce risk of heart problems and stroke.  Omega 3 fats may also reduce risk of psychotic like behavior such as hearing voices of having hallucinations.

A study of 33,000 middle aged women found that high consumption of omega 3 fats was associated with significantly lower rates of psychotic behavior and schizophrenia like symptoms.  This research by Hedelin et al. is in press in the MMC Psychiatry Journal.

The best sources of omega 3 fats include flax oil, fish oil and fatty fish like salmon, mackerel, anchrovies, sardines and herring.  Fairly good sources of omega3 fats include soybeans, walnuts, pumpkin seeds and canola oil.
