There are brands with higher ratios of EPA to DHA available. EPA is thought to be the active ingredient. This is an interesting article that helps explain it: http://www.fightingdepression.co.uk/epa-not-dha-for-depression-dr-barry-sears
also taking vitamin E with the fish oil will give you better results. Vitamin E prevents oxidation of the fatty acids in your body.
