Global Healing Center's Selenium supplement is plant-derived, highly bioavailable, and made from 100% organic materials to support your body naturally.A study published in the Journal of Affective Disorders revealed that post-trauma supplementation of omega-3 fatty acids may be effective for secondary prevention of psychophysiological symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Psychophysiological symptoms, such as a pounding heart, are known to be common complications of PTSD.

  • For the study, researchers from Japan recruited 83 accident survivors to determine whether omega-3 fatty acids have a beneficial effect on preventing psychophysiological symptoms like increased heart rate caused by PTSD.
  • In conducting the study, the Japanese researchers gave the participants either omega-3 fatty acids — 1,470 milligrams (mg) docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and 147 mg eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) — or placebo within 10 days of the accidental injury.
  • The supplementation period lasted for 12 weeks.
  • After 12 weeks, the participants performed script-driven imagery of their traumatic experience as the researchers monitored their heart rate and skin conductance.
  • The researchers found that heart rate during rest and script-driven imagery was substantially lower in those who took omega-3 fatty acids than those who took the placebo.

From these findings, it can be concluded that supplementation of omega-3 fatty acids might help improve psychophysiological symptoms of PTSD.
