Researchers have reported that fish oil, particularly those with omega-3 fatty acids, may help treat depression. The mega-3 contains DHA's which are used to build communication neuron walls. The body can only obtain DHA's from diet. A study in England reported that 69% of the 70 depressed subjects who didn't receive benefits from drugs had an improvement in their condition after 12 weeks of omega-3 fatty acid consumption compared to 25% on placebo.
