Fish Oil and Epilepsy

A study published September 2014 in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Psychiatry tested 24 patients with medication-resistant epilepsy. Patients who used 3 capsules of fish oil daily had fewer seizures than those who took placebo and also those who took 6 capsules of fish oil daily. Two people using the 3-capsule dose were in fact seizure-free during the 10-week trial. This is a small patient group and results are preliminary, but using 3 capsules of fish oil daily seems safe and reasonable.
