I've seen both clinical and anecdotal evidence supporting either form. Go figure. The mileage varies thing I guess. I've tried various versions....differing ratios, isolated, etc...and honestly fish oil just made me globally worse physically and mentally. Which doesn't make any sense, but it is what it is. The only explanation I have been able to come up with is lyme related....that is, in lyme, the organisms secrete an enzyme that prevents the proper metabolism of the oils, so they instead are turned into pro-inflammatory substances instead.

Honestly I think the whole topic of fish oils in today's world is off base. We should be talking cod liver oil, not fish oil. The benefits and mechanisms trounce plain fish oils. My body likes a small amount of cod liver oil, but not fish oil, so that tells me something. I can't remember all the stuff I have read, but cod liver oil really has a bunch of extra goodies that go along with it, in addition to all the goodies that plain fish oil offers.

I have no experience with it, but I've seen claims that Krill fish oil is better than plain fish oil. Something unique about that particular fish. Dunno. For sure though, I favor cod liver oil over common fish oils.

As to either EPA or DHA, both made me much more depressed very fast. EPA was a stimulating nervous depression, DHA was a dull depression. I know you've tried some things that sent you into the deep dark real fast. Fish oil is one of those things with me. Cod liver oil, different story. I mean, it shows the amount of EPA and DHA right on the bottle, so I don't get why it's ok for me if it is from cod liver but not ok from fish. Dunno.

Anyway, fish oils of various ratios and kinds are certainly tops on the list for any chronic ailment or psych issue, imo.. Trial and error to find what works best for the individual.
