Who’s Talking About Us

“I have found that the best brand of omega-3 is called OmegaBrite because it contains the highest concentration of omega-3 in the capsules and is manufactured under rigorous scientific standards.”

“OmegaBrite was the first high concentrate, high EPA Omega-3 available to the public and created awareness of the importance of Omega-3 and the importance of EPA as the body’s natural anti-inflammatory molecule.”

“OMEGA-3 OMEGABRITE SHOWS BENEFIT IN CHILDREN WITH BIPOLAR DISORDER BOSTON”, MA, April 4, 2007. A recently published study by researchers at Harvard and Massachusetts General Hospital shows that a specially formulated Omega-3 fatty acid supplement showed beneficial results in a study of children with bipolar disorder.
The OmegaBrite supplement of high EPA Omega-3 fatty acids was tested for effectiveness and safety on 20 boys and girls with bipolar disorder, 6 to 17 years old, over an eight-week period. Thirty five percent of the children experienced a greater than 50% percent reduction in symptoms with no adverse side effects.
Biederman and Wozniak’s previous study using Olanzepine and Risperidal showed similar results to the Omega-3 supplement with a 53% reduction in mania for olanzepine and a 69% reduction in mania using risperidal.
The pharmaceutical drugs in that prior study had side effects of sedation, weight gain, increased prolactin levels and increased heart rate. The Omega-3 OmegaBrite had no side effects and was well tolerated. The children receiving 6 capsules per day of the omega-3 OmegaBrite had benefit.
Results from this prospective, open study of monotherapy with Omega-3 fatty acids in the over-the-counter product OmegaBrite suggest that manic symptoms can be rapidly reduced in youths with BPD with a safe and well-tolerated nutritional supplement.
The study findings indicate importance of further research on Omega-3, mood disorders and children. The Massachusetts General study, funded by a Stanley Foundation grant, was reported in European Neuropsychopharmacology in February 2007.
