A recent study in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry concluded that EPA – one of the omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil – improves depression. This study reviewed the results of relevant research studies conducted over the past 50 years and found that EPA is the critical component in fish oil that improves mood. They concluded that to be effective, fish oils should contain more than 60% EPA (vs. DHA – the other omega-3 fatty acid found in fish oil).
