An intriguing study, released by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, found that 800 U.S. military personnel who committed suicide had low omega-3 levels.
Omega-3 is a fatty acid found most commonly in fish and linked to increased heart health and mood improvement.
“A previous placebo-controlled trial demonstrated that 2 grams of omega-3 fatty acids per day reduced suicidal thinking by 45 percent as well as depression and anxiety scores among individuals with recurrent self-harm,” according to an NIH press release.
Would this finding prompt you to eat more fish — or take fish oil capsules?
