Fatty Acids & Autism
One of the clear things about omega 3 fatty acids is that they are one of the most serious nutrients that exist. Some feel that defects in the brain can arise from different parts of the omega 3 system having troubles, and that giving high amounts of this neuron structural fat, to a child or an adult, may help different brain troubles.
Recently, Scottish researchers suggested autism might be caused by a deficiency of fatty acids. They noted autistic youth cells that broke down fatty acids too fast.
In the past ten years, psychiatric researchers have found that omega 3 can help with a wide range of psychiatric and neurologic problems. Research has should omega 3 levels or deficiencies associated with depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and dyslexia.
We have known for over a hundred years that defects in the bodies ability to use essential substances leads to many disorders. It is possible that this might be one of the many causes of autism. But more research needs to be done. In the meantime, consider omega 3 for any child or adult with a psychiatric or neurology disorder. And if they have a sensitive stomach, the enteric-coated Fisol might be an option.
