The role of omega-3 fatty acids in normal brain function is often overlooked, but in the treatment of schizophrenia, the levels of healthy fats in your body is crucial. Fish, particularly salmon, mackerel and tuna, provide high levels of omega-3 fatty acids that can help your brain function normally. The anti-inflammatory nature of omega-3 fatty acids can also help reduce plaque build-up in the brain, and can positively impact a number of neural disorders, including bipolar disorder and certain psychoses.
