high dose fish oil...

Posted by Christ_empowered on October 31, 2018, at 12:01:11

the test begins NOW. LOL.

seriously. apparently, dealing with psych stuff requires high(er) doses than I'd been led to believe. 3 grams combined EPA+DHA=10 caps of my standard issue (neither "high potency" nor particularly low potency) fish oil. lemon flavor...always a good thing.

I do feel somewhat better already. I think its just because I'm doing something constructive about the blues, honestly. pushing forward despite the lethargy and such is "therapeutic," in and of itself. other than that...

wait and see, I suppose. :-)

Hi CE,

i have bought an algae oil.. Thats where the fish get their EPA/DHA from. Fishoil made me worse. Maybe it was just that particular brand? i dont know. The algae oil seems to not make me worse. I am taking it since yesterday.

My hopes where to reduce ldl cholesterol, but i think it can only reduce triglycerides which are also too high.

Maybe it will help depression. That would be cool!

So the algae oil doesnt make me worse at all. I actually find music more enjoyable than before.

Hi Lamdage, in what way did Fish Oil make you feel worse? Do you know what the EPA & DHA content were? And what it is in your Algae Oil?

Have you seen any effects/improvements with Algae Oil?

Hmm it is not easy to describe. Kind of a headache. General feeling of unwellness. The algae oil has 200 EPA 150 DHA. I don't recall about the Fish oil. It was high EPA I think. I have tried 3 or 4 Fish Oils and they all made me feel the same. Yeah, there has been an improvment of mood and anxiety, but I wouldn't count on it as the sole antidepressant agent. In concert with other nutrients, it is good.

Algae Oil is always the "triglycerid" form of EPA/DHA, and Fish Oil almost always not.
