Omega-3 can help recovery from depression
Researchers have brought together results from 40 international studies on the benefits of taking omega-3 supplements for treating depression. Whilst not a treatment for depression, taking an adequate dose seems to improve the chance of recovery.
They looked at other nutrional supplements too, which also help in depression, and omega-3 came out as the most effective.
It is important to still consult with your doctor or psychiatrist and not stop the treatments that you are taking for depression.
