I've been taking omega 3 fish oil tablets every day for at least two months now & have noticed no difference in my mood. That's part of the reason I started taking it, because I had heard it could help, but it's done nothing of the sort. I continue taking it because it's still good for my physical health, even if it does nothing for my mental health.

Well, if nothing else, it's good for your cardiovascular system. lol

Surprisingly though, there have been a couple of clinical studies (I can't remember by which universities) that have shown that Omega-3 oil in conjunction with daily vigorous walking was just as effective as anti-depressants in the treatment of MILD depression.

I take it for health reasons. My depression is too severe for Omega-3 oil to efficacious.

update;

I purchased the above fish oil (xtend life omega 3 / dha fish oil) and for me it doesn't work at all , in fact it's increased my problems and made them worse. like increased uncomfortable cardiac palpitations and insomnia to name but a few problems. based on personal experience I won't be trying this one again, just reading the thread again I see that someone else had the same reaction ,one mans poison is another's potion, maybe it might work for you...

possibly, regardless I never experienced the same thing on the cheap cod liver oil I was using before. for me the xtend-life brand ones only caused problems and didnt help anything at all. it actually slowed my cognitive functions down where as the cheaper capsules helped me out a bit.

That would be the side effects of fish oil, give krill oil a go. I had a bunch of problems when using high dosages of good quality fish oil. Switched to krill oil and I don't have any side effects.

Which fish oil are you taking? It's not just as simple as going to the store and purchasing a bottle of fish oil and expecting it to work.

I find it 'interesting' that ones own experience deems they can now " assure everyone that they have no effect on mood or anxiety,.." . And why an update when there was no doubt the 1st time ? Momentary rationale?

I doubt all grades of fish oil are the same for all people. To think your result would suit everyone is funny to me .
Same deal, people just don't research this stuff properly. If your prepared to try fish oil, give Krill Oil a go first, IMO it's much better.

Really? Haha surprised my family haven't personally prescribed these for me at certain times! I've taken them before though and not really noticed any difference, although I'd assume it be extremely subtle?

Concentration and memory wise, I believe fish oil helps me a great deal. Which in store slightly lessens depressions hold on me.

Omega 3 Fish Oils are great. I use them with a multi, vit D, vit C, B50 complex and a Clonazepam.

its not going to do much for anxiety, but its great for the heart and it's good for joints, which is something you want to take if you exercise regularly.

By not correcting my spelling mistakes, I am proving that I do not care what others think of me.

I did not notice any change in mood with fish oil supplements. I did notice my hair and nails grew really nice... but I noticed a HUGE increase in appetite. I felt constantly hungry so I had to stop taking them.

Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids = Omega 6's + Omega 3's.


I believe the whole idea of taking omega 3's to begin with is to re-address the modern tendency for sky high amounts of omega 6. In other words, there is suppose to be a balance between the two (1:4 in O6's favour at the highest)
Therefore I would argue by cutting back on Omega 6's you'll probably see greator benefit. And it would probably explain why some people don't see that much difference sometimes when they do supplement O3's.

In an ideal world though, you would have a good ratio between the two AND consume very little Polyunsaturated fats to begin with. Saturated fats are the ideal (I know this flies in the face of conventional thinking) in regards to dietary fat sources.

slow progress is still progress.
