Hi Jedi

Thanx for sharing that information. In regard to the EPA & DHA, how did you arrive at that dosage regimen that you mentioned. Do you have any links to information of effective dosages of the Omega-3 fatty acids for the treatment of depression?

There appears to be an optimum level for the treatment of depressive symptoms. Do you have any links to studies that suggest an optimum dose? This excerpt is from an early study done at Harvard in 1999 by Dr Andrew Stoll.

"...Less may also be more. Large doses may result in oxidative stress as omega-3 is being metabolized.. This may explain why some studies using EPA (see above) failed at higher doses. Accordingly, Dr Cott recommends omega-3 be taken with vitamins C and E. Dr Stoll also recommends taking vitamins C and E with omega-3 (1.5 to 3.5 grams of omega-3 a day, taken with food)."

see: http://www.mcmanweb.com/article-15.htm

Your dose of 1.2 g & 1.8 g gives you the 3 grams of Omega-3 per day which is in the upper range of what's suggested here.

Cheers
Sentience
