Choosing an Omega-3 supplement can be a daunting task. Understanding what it is help determine the best fit for you. Omega-3 is comprised to two main components – EPA which is the anti-inflammatory aspect and DHA which is the beneficial brain component. So when you’re searching for the right one, read the label! We like Nordic Naturals ProOmega due to their low mercury levels, testing, and quality. I also really like that they add natural flavor (lemon or strawberry) to them so if they happen to repeat a little while your body adjusts to them, it doesn’t leave a fishy aftertaste in your mouth.
If you decide to add Omega-3 supplements to your daily routine, talk to your doctor to be sure there aren’t any interactions with any other medications you may be on. However, studies have shown that the administration of Omega-3 in conjunction with antidepressant treatment is superior to antidepressant treatment alone.
