A recent double-blind placebo study titled “Fish Oil Intake and Seizure Control in Children with Medically Resistant Epilepsy” demonstrated fish oil intake can reduce the number of seizures in children.
Using a population base of 70 children, half were given fish oil and the second half were given a placebo. Both groups were monitored for 3 months. The intervention group received 1200mg of fish oil, 240 DHA and 360 EPA. The results are astounding.
The percentage of children having zero attacks per month increased from 0% to 57.1% at the end of the third month in the intervention group, while it only reached 2.9% in the control group.
This is a fantastic study about the efficacy of fish oil.
In my practice I recommend a minimal dose of 450DHA, per neurologist Dr. Perlmutter. In even lower doses, fish oil proved effective at reducing seizures.
Bringing much light,
