Tim Ferriss discussed the potential benefits and considerations of omega-3 fatty acids on his podcast. He noted that taking these supplements could improve mood and sleep, but also mentioned an issue with mild nausea when taking higher doses. He suggested being cautious with the brand and form of omega-3, recommending high-quality options to avoid potential problems such as rancidity or nausea 1.

In another discussion, it was emphasized that virtually every gene in the human genome has a receptor site for omega-3s, which suggests their broad potential impact on health. Omega-3s are highlighted as beneficial for alleviating symptoms across a wide variety of diseases 2.

However, the use of omega-3s in conjunction with antidepressants was also mentioned, indicating that higher intake might allow for lower doses of antidepressants, but this should always be done under medical supervision 3.
