Scientists have found a medicine for schizophrenia among vitamins

Vitamin supplements can powerfully affect the human’s condition. British experts from the University of Manchester have found that the addition of vitamins B6, B8 and B12 in the diet of patients with schizophrenia increases the effectiveness of medications, and also reduces the risk of disease recurrence, "M24.RU" reports.

"High doses of vitamin B can help people get rid of residual symptoms of schizophrenia. Positive changes in the body of patients taking vitamins B, can also be caused by the peculiarities of their genetics." - said one of the researchers, Joseph Firth.

It is known that in the experiment vitamin B was co-administered with antipsychotic drugs. This combination worked perfectly and the number of relapses was decreased. It is well known that vitamins B6, B8 and B12 are antioxidants. They slow down aging and prevent cell death caused by stress.

The experts do not exclude that other vitamin supplements may help people with schizophrenia. According to statistics, for today most of the techniques used for schizophrenia treatments are not sufficiently effective. Approximately 80% of patients, who completed treatment, begin to suffer from specific symptoms, including hallucinations in 4-5 years. Therefore the search for alternative therapy is a must.
