I Still Don't Know How Much Fish Oil To Take
 
Hi. Even after reading posts, I'm still unsure what the best amount of fish oil capsules is best to help depression.

Could someone please clarify for me?

Thank you very much.

How much seems to be trial and error. I've read about people taking as much as 8 fish oil capsules a day. I've been getting my fish oil through diet(salmon) for quite a while. I used to take 1 capsule a day and that worked best. More than that and the depression got worse.

I took 3 g (3000 mg) daily for awhile. Now, I'm taking 2 g/day. I think the amount varies by person as does whether it will benefit you or not. It wasn't a cure-all for me, by any means, but I find my moods are more stable when I take the fish oil pills daily. Another big part of it is regular aerobic exercise. Of course, my depression has been mild and manageable with a good diet and exercise for awhile now; I wasn't feeling suicidal, having urges to self-harm when I went the no-meds route in the first place.

I'd never heard of this. It works to help depression? Which is the best to take?

Thank you both. I must take too much because it doesn't do anything for me. I am going to try just one.

Thanks again!
