Are fish oils helpful in depression

Recommended Posts


Fish oil (EPA/DHA, Omega 3's etc.) are, in general, good dietary supplements. Some people feel that they can help depression - as can a number of supplements - on a minor level - and as can even more so a good diet and exercise.

They are NOT, however, medication and shouldn't be seen as being 'helpful' on that level.

Diet and exercise AND a 'healthy' mental space - as in GOOD relationships, not BAD ones - are probably more important than even meds and therapy. In other words, IF you are depressed work on those things not just take a pill or supplement or see a therapist.

Do everything you can to find a healthy and positive lifestyle and POSITIVE emotional support.

But if you are depressed do also follow through with therapy - and meds if the doctor or therapist think they will help.
