Last week, I went to the health food store and got some EPA-DHA Omega 3 supplements. I was told by one of the workers there that I should take 3 softgels a day for the first week, in order to jumpstart feeling better.
I have had depression for well over a year now, most probably major depression, according to my counselor. Furthermore, I'm trying to eliminate my depression using natural methods, such as daily exercise and supplements.
Each softgel that I take contains of 800 mg of EPA and DHA, as well as much smaller amounts of omega 6 and 9. So if I take 3 of these softgels a day for a week, that would be 2400 mg of Omega 3 each day (2.4 g).
My question is, is it safe for me to take this much Omega 3 in one day, even if it's just for a week?
Thank you! :)
