Abstract:

Full Citation: "PURPOSE: We examined whether a dietary supplement containing omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 PUFAs) can alleviate and/or reduce the frequency of epileptic seizures in patients with central nervous system (CNS) diseases treated with anticonvulsive drugs (ACDs). METHODS: A special spread containing 65% n-3 PUFAs was added to the daily diet. The patients consumed 5 g of this spread at every breakfast for 6 months. RESULTS: Five patients completed the study. In all of them, a marked reduction in both frequency and strength of the epileptic seizures was recorded. CONCLUSIONS: Incorporation of the dietary supplement containing n-3 PUFAs may be beneficial in suppression of some cases of epileptic seizures."
