    We’ve all heard that these oils (mainly in fish) are really good for you and have lots of health benefits, which would definitely make them a real plus for people recovering from alcoholism/drug abuse……… BUT, one thing I didn’t know is that they’re finding out that Omega-3 fish oil also acts as a kind of mood stabilizer and have had positive effects on people with depression and bipolar disorder.

    There are new studies being conducted now to pin down how it works. And there are tons of articles on the other benefits, too. (see below)

    Not trying to give any medical advice, but I thought it was interesting info and am going to be taking my fish oil capsules from now on (I needs all the help I can git!!:c031:)

    “It not only plays a vital role in the health of the membrane of every cell in our body, it also helps protect us from a number of key health threats,” says Laurie Tansman, MS, RD, CDN, a nutritionist at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York.

    The benefits of omega-3s include reducing the risk of heart disease and stroke while helping to reduce symptoms of hypertension, depression, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), joint pain and other rheumatoid problems, as well as certain skin ailments. Some research has even shown that omega-3s can boost the immune system and help protect us from an array of illnesses including Alzheimer’s disease.
