Have started taking ethyl eicosapentenoic acid for depression. After even one day I am much clearer in my way of thinking. Has anyone else tried this?

Hi Jae,

I have not taken this but I am interested (as you are) to hear from others who have taken it. It is not a very common treatment and its not something I have heard mentioned here in the last year or so, so you may be a pioneer and will have to educate us!

Overview of the theory:
 
Man's brains became enlargened as a result of eating fish. The healthy balance of omega 3 (fish oils) and omega 6 (vegetable oils) is 1:1. But with the advent of the industrial revolution that balance has altered to 20:1 in omega 6's favor. n3 and n6 compete in the brain. In the last 100 years the human brain has started to shrink.

Thinking much more clearly, everything is "neat" at home now. Have also started to eat much more healthily. Not just lean meats and lots of vegetables, but also cutting back on subtle energy thieves such as wheat and dairy.

I think fish oil is very helpful. I use to eat a lot of fish, but since I haven't been, I take the omega fatty acids. I hope that this does have something to do with what you were talking about.LOL... My brain isn't all that good today.

Have a good one
hugs, Karen

Thank you Jae,

I use to eat a lot more fish than I do now so I take supplements. I got lucky. I found some where if you burp it up, it tastes like oranges instead of fish.

That was very interesting and imformative. Again, thank you.

hugs, Karen...
