In a study involving 20 people with recurrent depression,
researchers studied the effects of a specific omega 3 fatty acid known as pure
EPA. Patients randomly received either the fish oil capsule or a sugar pill
in addition to the anti depressant medication they were taking. After four weeks,
six out of ten patients receiving EPA had significantly reduced symptoms of
depression. The study was published in the American journal of psychiatry 2002.
