The more DHA you eat the more gets into your tissues

    The retina of the eye is technically part of the brain. The brain is the key part of the CNS. The CNS contains very low levels of EPA but very high levels of DHA. Therefore, EPA may compensate DHA roles outside the CNS. DHA-phospholipids support transmembrane receptor function in the CNS, thus resulting in impaired receptor function when DHA bioavailability is decreased. Phosphatidylserine (PS), a DHA-rich phospholipid, modulates AKT signaling by recruiting cytosolic proteins, Raf-1, and protein kinase C to discrete membrane locations, in turn promoting cell survival. This action blocks apoptosis to promotes cell survival and optimal health. This is why DHA has shown health benefits in most studies where it is found.

    This makes sense because I've been taking fish oil supplements for probably close to 10 years and I really haven't noticed a thing. Even with 'quality' brands and high doses - no results.
    It seems like I've actually had better mood results from other oils that I have experimented with (olive, flax, even margarine..when I didn't know any better) but always short lived.

    Interesting..
    I remember several years ago EPA was considered to be the main player of the two according to some European studies.
    But by trying to 'fine tune' what gives the benefits we miss out on the "30,000 ft view" of what really going on...we need the entire biological package.

    We didn't evolve taking fish oil. We evolved eating fish.

    I've been taking PS for years - and PC - but I had no idea it had DHA... it does improve memory and helps with sleep IMHO... nice post:)

    it does not.........foods with DHA assimilate PS in a big way in the brain.

    I tried PS many years ago but I didn't notice anything.

    yeah.But it is all because how we are conditioned I guess... if everyone would be eating those it would be the most natural thing in the world!
    I think its is super weird people eat candy! LOL Like totally unnatural and weird... like eating plastic? ;) but almost everyone does......

    It do was a little hard to open up those lamb skulls I had kissed so gently as they were still alive.. I have to admit :eek:
    but I did it anyways as I knew I needed that brainpower :p
    and as I operated on the skulls I thought about.... Jack! :D and how he does that every day.. on living human! and I could not be such a wuss....lol

    You are absolutely right, Inger. I've been so differently conditioned that I could never imagine the lamb skull thing. It's heartbreaking for me to even think about.
    But at least they were well respected and loved when they were alive..

    Is it possible to lose DHA faster than we can replace it?
    Do stimulant medications and antidepressants destroy DHA?

    Isn't that one of the main problems we're trying to solve to begin with. Obviously you can lose DHA faster than you can replace it. Maybe if you get to extremly low levels of DHA that changes..
    I am no Jack Kruse, But I am sure they don't help here..

    I think this belief is what got you into trouble.........excess DHA has other uses of which are not what Peat suggests in his lab data.

    I'm looking at my question almost a year later and I answer to myself "Duh!...No shit! Yes and yes..."
    I guess that means I've learned one hell of a lot in the last year.
