    I'm trying to understand the array of fish oil and flax seed oil supplements. One thing I know that they are good for is mood, and I have bipolar. High doses of fish oil have been shown to help. But I'm not sure what type specifically I need, or whether I also need flax seed oil.

    The symptoms I would like to address are chronic muscle pain, fatigue, bipolar/depression, OCD, systemic inflammation (Grave's disease of the eyes, high C-Reactive Protein marker).

    Hi Mike;

    I don't know if this link to Chris Kresser's article about recommended fish oil brands is going to be a case of TMI, but the comments section is interesting, but very technical and long.

    I've just started taking fish oil again because it may help with methylation.

    Not sure where you are at, but there is a prescription fish oil, Lovaza, get a 3 month supply (w/insurance only 2 copays) and it is probably cheaper than buying it in the store. FYI
