Find­ing calm

Good Health (Australia) - - Be Informed -

With anx­i­ety on the rise, a timely study has found that omega 3 sup­ple­ments may re­duce symp­toms of the con­di­tion. The anal­y­sis of 16 stud­ies pub­lished in

JAMA Net­work Open

found that, over­all, omega 3 sup­ple­ments were as­so­ci­ated with sig­nif­i­cant re­lief from anx­i­ety symp­toms, es­pe­cially for those who took up to 2000mg a day. How­ever, anx­i­ety lev­els didn’t ease in those with­out a clin­i­cal di­ag­no­sis of anx­i­ety or teens un­der 18. And, says se­nior au­thor Yu­taka Mat­suoka, you don’t need to take sup­ple­ments to reap the ben­e­fits – eat­ing mack­erel, sar­dines, tuna or salmon will do just as well.
