Trim the fat: the role of omega-3 fatty acids in psychopharmacology

3 Likes

I read studies that in some schizophrenics with treatment resistant type omega 3 levels were low in the blood. I take these supplements and noticed improvement in mood and cognition.

It probably wouldn’t be that hard to test people’s blood and figure out who needs more omega 3 and who doesn’t. But they’re not gonna do that, so you can try it and see if it helps.

Of course, if you can, eating fish like salmon, tuna and mackerel is known to have health benefits.

I’ve been taking Omega 3’s for years and years. I noticed it helped my mood significantly. Or seemed to.

LS! I take vegan algae oil Omega 3 DHA 500 milligrams daily. It helps with the absorption of EGCG from the green tea I ingest it with. I am ashamed to admit that as a vegetarian I have used fish oil capsules for years. I strongly believe in the benefits of DHA/EPA. I did read Jean Carper - Your Miracle Brain; which touts fish oil.
