I take "The Total EFA" by Health from the Sun (stupid name). It's important to take Omegas 3, 6, and 9 in the proper ratios, otherwise they are useless. Sorry, I forget the ratios since my brain is unable to retain numbers.

Anyway, these work subtly. I don't feel a rush or anything wonderful. But they do give me an edge when I'm depressed, so that I am able to do other things to help myself, v. when I don't take them, everything is worse. They also help me deal with stress.

Only drawback is that they are stupidly expensive.

Hubby was told it may help with his depression while he waited for his other meds to kick in. It really did help. I also started taking it because, in my family, people have this nasty habit of dropping dead in their 40's due to heart disease. Fish oil can seriously reduce heart disease risks. A side benefit was my joint pain started to go away, and my allergies became way less severe.

I think it makes a big difference for me in terms of depression and probably irritability a little bit. I just know that when I stop taking them, it is very noticeable. I start feeling like crap and depressed and cranky and it's just a big mess. I wouldn't want to stop taking them.

You do have to give it some time for it to make a difference most of the time.

I take 3,000mg/day.

It depends on what you want it to do. I don't recommend using it for a tire jack.

It's helped me level out a bit after having been in a funk for the better part of a year and definately helped my focus.

Here's some research:

I've got a several different sources listed in the crazystore. If you get it there it helps the site pay bills and anything left over helps me eat.
