4.0 out of 5 stars Great but could be better on omega 3 advice, 30 July 2009
This review is from: The Mood Cure (Paperback)
This book has helped me lots with my depression and I can safely say that because of the book I have come off antidepressants. SO many thanks to the author for putting the information about vitamins and amino acids (in particular) out there. Having moved on from the book and reading other natural ways to deal with depression and while still taking my aminos of course, I now look back and wonder why the omega 3 section in the book is not further clarified regarding the balance of EPA and DHA. Taking omega 3 on its own did not improve me or my depression (which I have had for 20 years) but pure EPA made a big difference. There is good books and research written on the use of EPA to treat depression but I won't name them here while you are reviewing this book. SO buy this book but don't expect it to be the end of your quest for a cure - it sure can get you closer though.

Bonjour SHJG,
You should definitely post the sources you know in your review. They may help many people. As for omega 3, I've had the same experience as you. They are always a blend of EPA and DHA in different proportions. I tried many trades. I initially have a lift off that lasted three days and then nothing at all. As you mentioned it though the one brand that seems to have a more noticeable effect had much more EPA. My readings never allowed me to figure out if there was an ideal ratio and what it could be. Some said that DHA seems to be the most important and others EPA. Following your review I want to try EPA alone and DHA alone if I can find some.
Merci.
Frédéric
