Can Cod Liver Oil Help Depression…In a study of almost 22,000 Norwegians aged over 40, those who regularly took cod liver oil were less likely to suffer depression than those who did not. The oil is rich in omega-3 fatty acids which are linked to various benefits. Scientists said a spoonful of cod liver oil could reduce the risk of depression by as much as 30 percent. Prevalence of depression symptoms among cod liver oil users was 2.5 percent, compared to 3.8 percent in the rest of the population. The study also suggests that the longer the subjects took the oil, the less depressed they became. (Journal of Affective Disorders, volume 101, Issue 1-3, August 2007, pages 245-249)
