Arc EPA 70

Omega 3 with EPA advantage for mood disorders

Arc EPA 70

Omega-3 fatty acids are found primarily in fish oil and certain marine algae.
Long recognized for their heart-health benefits, omega-3 fatty acids are emerging as an effective therapy for mood disorders ranging from major depression and postpartum depression to bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.

Depression appears less common in nations where people eat large amounts of fish. So scientists have been investigating whether fish oils have any effect on mood disorders.

Two omega-3 fatty acids — eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) — are thought to have the most potential to benefit people with mood disorders.

“Meta-analyses (research that combines and analyses results of multiple studies) generally suggest that the omega-3s are effective, but the findings are not unanimous because of variability between doses, ratios of EPA to DHA, and other study design issues. The most effective preparations appear to have at least 60% EPA relative to DHA. While DHA is thought to be less effective as an antidepressant, it may have protective effects against suicide. Recent work at Massachusetts General Hospital and Emory University suggests that depressed individuals who are overweight and have elevated inflammatory activity may be particularly good candidates for EPA treatment.”

“In bipolar disorder (manic depression), the omega-3s may be most effective for the depressed phase rather than the manic phase of the illness”.
