Notes for this study:
In 33 otherwise healthy adults given 4g of fish oil (1,600mg EPA and 800mg DHA) for 35 days (dietary intake of fish at baseline not reported) noted that, alongside a somewhat normalized plasma ratio of omega 3:6 there was an improvement in overall mood state (more vigour with less aggression, fatigue, and depression). An increase in processing accuracy (reduced error frequency) and reduced reaction time were both noted.
