I want to make sure I'm taking a therapeutic dosage of Omegas to help with depression and anxiety.  I referenced the ebook, but I'm still confused based on the label of the supplement I have.  It's "Vegan Omega DHAx".  Here's what the label says:

Omega DHAx 1000mg

Total Omega-3 Fatty Acids 350mg

Algal DHA 350mg

Sunflower Phospholipids 110mg

Total Omega-6 Fatty Acids 25mg

Algal Astaxanthin 2500 mcg


Does that make any sense to anyone?

Thank you!

Ok, Omega 3 DHAx is an omega 3 supplement with added astaxanthin. Astaxanthin is a safe strong antioxidant with a strength close to that of vitamin C and N-Acetylcysteine.

This product contains a total of 350 mg of Omega 3 in the form of DHA. This is a very low concentration. There are three types of Omega 3: DHA, EPA and ALA. Normally we recommend 2000 mg of total combined DHA and EPA.

Phospholipids are a supplement often used for general heath benefits.

Omega 6 has been of little benefit to most members during withdrawal but it won't hurt.

Astaxanthin is a very good oxidizer for withdrawal. The normal dose is 6 mg once or twice a day. Your product is 2.5 mg.

O hope this helps and if you have any further questions let me know.

Thanks for explaining all of that, fishinghat!  I need to look for a better supplement.  My brain needs all the help it can get with Cymbalta brain fog.
