Violence & fish oil

Last Updated Aug 2007

Violence & fish oil By Dr. Barry Sears As I have often pointed out in my books, there is a strong connection between the lack of fish oil intake and violent and impulsive actions. Now, the July issue of the British Journal of Psychiatry confirms this in a new clinical study that demonstrates a 25% reduction in violence among prisoners who were given fish oil as a dietary supplement. This strong inverse relationship between fish oil consumption and violence is probably mediated by serotonin. High-dose fish oil increases serotonin levels which acts as your “just say no” hormone to impulsive actions. Rather than building more prisons, maybe it makes more sense to have a national mandate to take your fish oil once a day just like Grandma told you.
