Eating fresh sea food in general is good for your health but taking Omega 3 supplements can be tricky. Find the natural supplements to take if you don't like eating fish. My mom takes omega 3 supplements for her heart problems, it really helps.

How do you know it really helps?

It helps her because she feels better when taking omega 3 supplements. It is a simple observation, but may not work for anybody. In general natural supplements don't have side effects and they won't do any harm. Before taking any pills or supplements it is better to consult your doctor.

Dyslipidemia is one of the main determinants of atherosclerosis, which is the main cause of coronary ischemia. Omega 3 fatty acids reduce the levels of cholesterol in the blood, which indirectly helps the heart and vessels.

Also, Omega 3 acids have some benefits on the nervous system, i don't know if they really reduce anxiety levels, but they appear to reduce depression.

There's nothing to fear, but fear itself

I'm unsure it actually helps, placebo effect has power psychologically though lol. I do take it if I remember (as with vitamins lol hey better than none though right, here and there like our ancestors!), supposed to be good for the skin too. On the bad side, makes me feel bloated, gassy, and noxious~ And not the cool "Noxion" type of noxious you'd think of with purple clouds and green goo >_>!

Love or hate me as you will, but live now and in your final breath. In time we shall meet again.

Sounds like hogwash to me.

Been taking it regularly for the past many years. Doesn't seem like it made a difference in my mood in any way. But it did helped my with my good cholesterol and my skin.

I never knew this. I took omega 3 fish oil along with biotin for my hair. But I thought it was strange how when I did take it my mood seemed better. I dunno, I just thought maybe it was a pure coincidence. I stopped taking it recently out of laziness but I'm going to start again...

Need high doses according to study on post-partum depression


According to a meta-analysis study on post-partum depression Omega 3 had no effect....unless it was in high doses. Somewhere it was also mentioned that beyond 3000mg could cause problems with oxidised omega 3 in the body. So perhaps that should be our limit.

As a result I take super-high strength EPA/DHA supplement, like 900mg of EPA/DHA in a 1300mg capsule. When I get a friend to try it I get them to take 3 a day for a couple of days.

Also the most important seems to be DHA rather than EPA.

I think the anti-inflammatory effect is likely partly in the immuno suppressive effects of light polyunsaturates. So perhaps best to avoid large amounts of the stuff. Veg oils were used experimentally for transplant patients but abandoned due to cancer issues in favour of more targeted mould based immuno suppressives.

I've not noticed anything for myself, but a friend recovered from a mild depression in the space of 30mins (taking a capsule on an empty stomach) just sitting at the table. She had been eating a lot of almonds and nuts generally over the space of a few days. I told her of the Omega 6 connection with depression (not just bi-polar as someone mentioned above), and convinced her to take the capsule. We were both astounded at her rapid recovery. She doesn't use it any more, favouring salmon, as it repeats on her, but she does now avoid Omega 6, nuts, margarine, veg oils etc, and use butter instead (and olive oil for salads, only 10% omega 6).

However I couldn't say for either of us that we have noticed any effect on SA.

My doctor wants me to take fish oil pills too, I think they will help cuz I don't eat so much salmon, all I have is a coffee and out the door, I think supplements will surely help my brain alot. If I can't eat it, I will surely swallow the pills! And also she wants me to take B complex vitamins, it's so amazing we don't get these nutrients from everyday american meals, so we have to take supplements ! dumb !

I take fish oil and it doesn't do squat for my anxiety or depression.

Sure has helped my constipation though.

My Fish Oil Experience


Fish Oil capsules and omega-3 supplements seem to help prevent clinical depression in my experience. You may feel bad and you may wish you were better but if you supplement this overtime i think it does act as a barrier from severe depression. No immediate effects are noticed however. As for anxiety i never really noticed any difference in anxiety when taking it although because it improves brain function it probably helps somewhat.

It was probably pushing out all the "toxins" in your body and so your skin was having a bad reaction to it.
The same thing happened to me when I started drinking green smoothies daily.
Then again when I started using coconut oil for my face and other organic products to wash and moisturize it.
Your body usually has to adapt to new, healthy changes, and unfortunately the way it often does that is to make your skin break out, red, irritated, etc.

I take a multi vitamin, St Johns Wort, vitamin D, Biotin, and fish oil daily.
My skin was irritated for 3 weeks and my hair was shedding more than usual.
Once my body adjusted to the changes, my hair started growing in thicker and fuller on my head, face, and body, and my skin feels really clean all the time.

Never read anything about it helping depression, but naturally when your body looks and feels healthier, you're bound to be pretty happy about that.

best Omega 3 - vegan


I recently discovered about Omega 3 from Clary Sage Seed Oil. Previously I've been using Omega3 from fish oil and suffered from really bad taste in my mouth *yak*. I take my health seriously and after research I found out not only Omega3 from Clary Sage has a great taste, this vegan & natural product also provides the best Essential Fatty Acid for our body without the side effects that go along with fish oil (weight gain, metal poisoning..)
This site was very helpful with all the information - https://vegan-omega3.com/content/19-...an-fish-oil?jo
I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I do

Only side effect I could think of is, it might give you some diarrhea if you have a sensitive stomach or intestines from the excessive oily content. Besides that, i doubt it could give you much problems.

My bf also has mild hyperthyroidism, and it gave him flareups since the fish oil pills have some iodine content, which made his condition worse.


Enjoy any good things, even the little and menial ones, as you will never know what impending distresses could descend upon you in a moment.
