Schizophrenia, Bipolar Disorder and Severe Depression

These three conditions may respond to PREformed, Polyunsaturated Essential Fatty Acid Supplementation better than they respond to drugs

Reviewed June 2016
A challenge many health care professionals face (regardless of the type of practice):  patients who are plagued by a variety of neuropsychiatric problems.  Here we discuss three neuropsychiatric problems in particular: Schizophrenia, Bipolar Disorder and Severe Depression.  These three have a common genetic link.  Life is very difficult for people with these condition, and for their family.  All neuropsychiatric disorders seem to benefit from fish oil supplementation and other Nutritional Supplements.

So, what is different about these 3 conditions?

Data suggest that Schizophrenia, Bipolar and Severe Depression conditions have an accelerated rate of loss of long chain EFAs (AA, DHA, EPA and DGLA) from the Sn2 position of membrane phospholipids.  The use of Ultra Omega-Linic in these situations is effective for two reasons.

1.    The high EPA in Ultra Omega-Linic quenches the over-activity of of the enzyme responsible for this loss; and
2.    Ultra Omega-Linic contains (and replaces) the particular EFAs that were lost due to the over-activity of the enzyme.

With time, compliance and patience the cell functions normalize - a huge benefit to the patient, the family and YOU!.

It is important that any pregnant mother receive Ultra Omega-Linic so that she can provide the necessary EFAs to the baby .  The baby takes what it needs for its own neurological development - especially while the brain and retina are developing.  This can deplete the mother's own body stores of EFAs. 

These particular neuropsychiatric conditions that we are discussing have a genetic link.  Therefore the problems run in the family.  If the mother is supplemented with EPA, DHA, and GLA during pregnancy and lactation (Dr Jones has recommended this since the mid 1990's), the problems may not manifest themselves in quite as negative a way - if they ever do!  Following this thought, the child should be supplemented all through infancy - and for life.
