Omegas Benefit in Epilepsy

October 27, 2014

In a recent article in Natural Standards, it was noted that taking fish oil might reduce seizures in people with epilepsy, according to a recent study.

In a new study, researchers randomly assigned 24 people with drug-resistant epilepsy to receive a low dose of fish oil, a high dose of fish oil, or placebo daily for 10 weeks. After a six week washout period, each participant switched treatments until all participants received all treatments for 10 weeks with 6 weeks in between. The frequency of seizures was measured throughout the study.

The authors concluded that taking low-dose fish oil might reduce seizures and improve overall health in people with drug-resistant epilepsy, justifying the need for a larger-scale study to further evaluate these findings.
