Violent Behavior and Inflammation

Although not officially considered a mental disease, many people have a tendency to use violence to solve problems in their daily life.

Violent behavior may have an underlying biochemical basis that can be corrected by a reduction in the silent inflammation profile.

For example, animals demonstrating abnormal aggression patterns usually have low blood levels of DHA.

Studies have also found violent prison inmates have lower levels of DHA in their blood than nonviolent prison inmates.

When prison inmates are given supplementation of fish oil, violence decreases.

It’s now well documented violence (and even violent video games) increases the levels of dopamine.

Therefore, people may have a tendency to use violence as a form of self-medication to increase low levels of dopamine.

Other studies have shown low levels of serotonin may also contribute to violent behavior because serotonin acts like a “morality” hormone stopping us from doing impulsive acts.

If low levels of neurotransmitters (like serotonin and/or dopamine) play a significant role in violent behavior, perhaps supplementation with high-dose fish oil (which can raise both) may play a critical role in behavior modification.
