Flax Oil or Fish Oil: Which is Better for Treating Depression?


Fish oil is one of the most popular supplements around, as it has so many health benefits. Many studies show that when a person supplements their diet with Omega-3 fatty acids—particularly EPA and DHA—there’s a noticeable improvement in their overall mood. Many people take flax oil instead, as it also contains Omega-3 fatty acids, but is it as effective as fish oil for alleviating depression? Which of these two oils is the superior one? The Canadian Network for Mood and Anxiety Treatments recently shared their findings that Omega-3 fatty acid supplements were effective in treating mild to moderate depression. The antidepressant effect from these supplements come into play because they modify serotonin transmissions in the brain. The fatty acids also…

Vitamin D Deficiency, PCOS, and Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis


A recent study was done on women with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) who also have a vitamin D deficiency. The study found that these women fare better when they taken higher doses of the vitamin. The women in the study had improved glucose and lipid metabolism markers when they increased their daily intake from 1,000 UI, to 4,000 UI. In another study (performed in 2015), another interesting correlation was found between PCOS and vitamin D deficiency. Fifty women with PCOS were followed, and and measured their levels of vitamin D, TSH, Anti TG, free T3, and free T4. The last of these two are thyroid function markers. At the end of the study, they found something interesting among the women who…

Magnesium and Zinc: Two Essential Minerals for PCOS


In PCOS, insulin resistance causes oxidative stress and inflammation to be carried in our blood. A recent study has shown that magnesium and zinc play an important role in antioxidant stress and inflammation. In the study, 60 women with PCOS were matched for BMI. They were randomized to either take 250mg of magnesium paired with 50mg of zinc twice daily, or a placebo. Aside from taking these minerals, there were no changes made to their daily habits. Reduction of Inflammation Tests done at the end of the study showed that the supplement groups had increased serum magnesium and zinc levels. There was also a reduction of hs-CRP and protein carbonyl, as well as an increase in plasma total antioxidant capacity.…
