Omega-3 Fish Oil Breakdown
Fish oil has two active omega-3 fatty acids: EPA and DHA. DHA is arguably the superior fatty acid as it is converted in the body to EPA as needed.
This fish oil has a combination of both EPA and DHA. NootropicsExpert has a great explanation on the difference between these two fatty acids.
Fish Oil Benefits
The primary benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids are mood, cognitive, and joint health. Although there are claims that fish oil supports heart health, a recent study failed to prove this.
Benefits from fish oil are subtle and happen over the course of a few weeks.
Fish oil dosage depends on your goal. For general daily maintenance, take 2 softgels. For mood or cognitive health, take 6 softgels.
Common Stacks and Synergies
Fish oils containing DHA stack well with uridine monophosphate for mood health.
