( — October 17, 2016) Orlando, FL — Today, more and more people are diagnosed with ailments that impact the brain. There are medications used for these conditions, but there are also natural alternatives that are believed to be helpful in fighting psychological ailments.

Neurological disorder sufferers may find help from the use of omega-3 fatty acids. Consumption of omega-3 fats has long been believed to be beneficial for overall health. Omega-3s can be found in fish such as mackerel, halibut, tuna, sardines, and herring. However, they can also be consumed through supplementation.

“Omega-3 fish oil supplements have been increasingly popular over the years, especially among individuals who want to improve their overall health,” said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan.

While omega-3s are a popular alternative for ailments such as cardiovascular disease and arthritis, it is increasingly gaining popularity among individuals who are prone to or suffering from psychological conditions. These neurological disorders include panic disorder, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and major depression.

In the study published in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, it was revealed that omega-3s are a potential natural alternative in fighting depression. The Science Daily also featured a study that demonstrated how a diet low in omega-3 fats is linked with a higher risk of depression. Dutch researchers also revealed that individuals who suffer from depression and those who don’t may have different intake levels of omega-3 fatty acids.

In the United States, the most prevalent psychological conditions are anxiety and depression. It is believed that the American diet, which is low in omega-3 fats, plays a vital role in the increasing number of individuals who suffer from either or both of the conditions. Inflammation in the brain is also believed to contribute to the development of the disorders.

Experts suggest that the brain is highly sensitive to cellular inflammation, which is triggered by high levels of omega-6 fats. Increased intake of omega-3 fatty acids is believed to reduce inflammation and protect the brain.

According to Joseph R. Hibbeln, from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, omega-3 fatty acids may have a positive effect on the performance of serotonin, which is a neurotransmitter associated with depression and anxiety. Omega-3s are believed to improve the function of serotonin, and thus, may help prevent the onset of depression and anxiety.

Fish oil supplements are extremely popular nowadays, and they are even believed to be a better alternative to fish consumption. Commercially available fish may contain higher levels of environmental pollutants such as mercury. More notable herbal supplement manufacturers use a process that may separate or eliminate heavy metals and toxins from fish oil.
