“Patients with schizophrenia and autism exhibit low levels of vitamin B12 in the brain, suggesting that these disorders could be related to poor B12 uptake from the blood into the brain.”
On an orthomolecular treatment plan, I gave myself shots of B-12 for several years, with no appreciable result. I found the whole orthomolecular thing a big waste of time and money.
Taking the right amount of B12 has been a critical part to alleviating my brother’s paranoid schizophrenic symptoms. Not everyone with schizophrenia has a B12 deficiency, but some do.
I’m diagnosed with SZ and Autism. B12 did sweet ■■■■ all for either. The only supplement I consider worth mentioning to date is sarcosine.
