Omega-3 & Lowering Depression Linked Again

A French study of 1,390 elderly participants studied the blood levels of omega-3 fatty acids (EPA) and the relationship to depression. Depression was evaluated using the Center for Epidemiological Studies Depression scale.*

The study found that the EPA levels and depressive symptoms were inversely related. Higher EPA in the blood (omega-3) was associated with a “lower severity of depressive symptoms in elderly subjects, especially those taking antidepressants.”
