I am pleased to have you join, Scott.

I have heard of it before, yes. Paradoxical reactions are something I personally experience. You do the research, the analysis, and then you do the experiment. The experiment should work, but....

> I am very disappointed. I had wanted to increase my intake of omega-3 in order to provide enough nutrition to enhance neurotrophism and neuroplasticity.

How are you with whole fish? There's a lot of other brain nutrition in there, too. Maybe it's the extracted food concentrate that is the problem?

You are an odd duck. <grin>

Maybe your doses were too high? Individual sensitivities/response might spread beyond even an order of magnitude.

BTW, have you noted the discussions re: vitamin D? It would seem that brain resiliency (my interpretation of the factors identified) is correlated with vitamin D status. And the nutrition "experts" are still mired in the obsolete thinking that the recommended daily intake need not be much above that needed to avoid overt symptoms of rickets. Optimal intake may well lie about 5000 IU/day.
