Cincinnati—A new application of a well-known nutritional supplement
derived from fish oil may help people who suffer from depression.
University of Cincinnati (UC) biological psychiatrists will study the
effectiveness of treating depression with fish oil capsules containing
omega-3 fatty acids. UC researchers are offering this natural remedy to
eligible volunteers free of charge in hope that it will bring relief

"This study may shed new light on

associate professor of psychiatry at the UC College of Medicine. Interested
