Re: omega 3 & bipolar
I'm not sure if the Flax Seed Oil gel-caps are Omega-3, but I think they are. I've been taking those for several years now. Originally they were a huge help for me in fighting off depression (I'm BP II) before I was put on Lithium - then I was just on Neurontin, Wellbutrin, and ADD meds. I've been on 8x 1000mg gel-caps per day (2 doses of 4 gel-caps each) for a few years now.
I much prefer the Flax Seed Oil over the fish-basd oils as I got horrid seal-burps, that I just couldn't stand. With Flax seed I get none of that.
Either way, fish or flax, I have had good luck in fighting off the depression. It has also helped my cholesterol level. Since I've been taking fish/flax I haven't had a cholesterol reading above 170 - mostly they've been below 160. Prior to that it was pushing 190 to 200.
