Omega 3A new meta-analysis of existing research points to Omega-3 essential fatty acids and their ability to help alleviate depression.

13 studies with over 1200 participants were reviewed for this analysis.  Researchers found a significant depression reducing benefit for EPA (Eicosapantaenoic Acid) and DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid), the essential fatty acids that make up Omega-3’s.  The higher the doses of EPA the more beneficial were the effects in reducing depression.  The studies included participants who were taking antidepressant medications.

Almost 16 million adults over the age of 18, about 6.7% of all American adults, have had at least one major depressive episode.  According to the Institute of Mental Health, major depressive disorder is one of the most common mental disorders in the United States.

Future trials are needed to establish any possible interactions between EPA and antidepressants. These results may provide a target to improve the response of antidepressant medications.

Make sure your fish oil is molecularly distilled to remove potential toxins.  Also a Fish oil that is manufactured to comply with strict European standards will be free of heavy metals, PCB’s, dioxins, pesticides and other unwanted compounds.  An enteric coating will protect the Fish Oil  from the harsh environment of the stomach, and then  the softgel will better travel to the small intestine where it can be digested and its fatty acids released and absorbed into the body. This prevents a fishy aftertaste and odor, and is helpful to sensitive individuals.  Some products will use lemon oil to help with the digestion of the Fish Oil softgel without any fishy burps.
