I won't let myself go without these again!
on 27 November 2014
I'm dyslexic, which means a weak short term and working memory as opposed to simply just 'having poor spelling' as many perceive dyslexia to be. In a bid to help, I thought I'd give MorEPA a try around 5 or 6 years ago after doing a bit of research around the effects of EPA, DHA etc in dyslexics. At the time it seemed to help, but the improvements were so gradual that it was difficult not to just write it off as a placebo effect or put it down to other factors such as diet or sleep (the latter being particularly influential with me).
It wasn't until I fell out of the habit of buying it regularly that one day it suddenly became apparent that there had been a drastic dip in my concentration, short-term memory and mood to what I'd become used to. I was trying to think of changes in my diet and lifestyle that could be having an impact on feeling this way, but when I really thought about it the only significant change was that I'd stopped taking MorEPA. This pattern of stopping followed by eventual realisation has repeated a few times over the past half decade and again most recently when I moved house and didn't order more. Once again, within a few days of re-starting my daily intake I have noticed a real uplift, particularly in my mood this time. This recent lapse is what has promoted me to write this long overdue review.
I'm completely convinced now that these do have an impact *on me* with my dyslexia but also on my general mood; obviously your own mileage may vary and I doubt this would have the same impact on everybody. It's not something I would naturally recommend to everyone, especially at the price, but I do mention it to those with dyslexia and other more minor learning/attention difficulties. I won't let myself go without these again - why won't Amazon let me add it to Subscribe & Save? However, I've decided I'll trial taking it every other day instead of one a day and seeing what the results are like as it's expensive and possibly contains more than the body is able to efficiently make use of at once. I'll update with my experiences.
