Schizophrenia as metabolic disease. What are the causes?


Schizophrenia (SZ) is a devastating neurodevelopmental disease with an accelerated ageing feature. The criteria of metabolic disease firmly fit with those of schizophrenia. Disturbances in energy and mitochondria are at the core of complex pathology. Genetic and environmental interaction creates changes in redox, inflammation, and apoptosis. All the factors behind schizophrenia interact in a cycle where it is difficult to discriminate between the cause and the effect. New technology and advances in the multi-dispensary fields could break this cycle in the future.

The supp seems to merely increase my physical stamina and it’s not having any effect on my mood or making me ‘high’ or anything similar. I find the supp very good, the one I take is
