Meta-analysis in leading psychology journal concludes benefit for B vitamins in schizophrenia
February 20 2017. A review and meta-analysis published on February 16, 2017 in Psychological Medicine confirms what orthomolecular physicians have been telling us for decades—that supplementation with B vitamins can improve the symptoms of schizophrenia. The meta-analysis is the first to be conducted on the subject of the effectiveness of B vitamin therapy for the disease.
For their research, Joseph Firth of the University of Manchester’s Division of Psychology and Mental Health and his colleagues selected 18 randomized controlled trials that evaluated the effects of vitamin and/or mineral supplements among a total of 832 patients receiving antipsychotic treatment for schizophrenia. The researchers determined that higher and combined doses of supplemental B vitamins, including vitamin B6, vitamin B12 and inositol, were associated with a greater reduction in symptoms than standard drug treatment alone. The vitamins appeared to be more effective when given earlier in the course of the disease.
