According to a study by the University of Pittsburg, Omega 3 can have a positive effect on your mood. You can read more at http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2006/03/060303205050.htm
I also use vitamin B Complex for my mood disorder and studies have shown that this may have a positive effect, especially those with bipolar disorder.
Hope this helps. Good Luck!
Thanks :) I was actually surprised to notice a positive effect when I really wasn't expecting any results from something "natural". I have always thought natural remedies were like snake oil - but this proved me wrong. There is no way I am going to take another medication on top of the 4 I take, so this seems like the next best thing. As long as I am able to study and focus better in school, I will take it. And I do not have to worry about medication interactions and side effects. Maybe it isn't good as medications, but it is better than nothing.
hey there. my dr actually told me to start taking omega 3s after i had read about it in a natural remedy book. i was pretty stable when i went off the depakote, and started the omegas a little bit later. i just take 2 pills, and sometimes i forget, but i guess its working cause i havent really been depressed.
I am glad they are working for you as well : ) I am still surprised with how well they are helping me.
Omegas are also really important for women during their menstrual cycles..it lessens the depression associated the cycle (well, for me!) It also helps with fertility.
Even more I didn't know, thanks :)
