Ideally, it would be best if one was already supplementing with their ideal dosage. Next is to commence supplementation as soon as possible after the injury. Even after weeks or months omega 3 supplementation may be effective in minimizing the damage and helpful in reducing a post concussion syndrome.
One should also consider supplementing with polyphenols which protects the omega-3’s from oxidation within the body. This is especially beneficial for those who need to supplement with high dose fish oil, greater than 5g/d of EPA & DHA. Supplementing with only omega 3’s is okay, however, combining one’s omega 3 supplementation with polyphenols is ideal. Dr. Sears comments on polyphenols at these links: http://blog.zonehealth.com/2011/02/...yphenols/. http://www.zonediet.com/blog/2011/0...rk-better/ http://www.zonediet.com/blog/tag/polyphenols/ http://www.zonediet.com/blog/tag/polyphenols/

To determine one’s optimal omega 3 dosage the AA/EPA test is most effective. Info at http://drsears.com/ArticlePreview/t...ault.aspx.
The test, a $150 value, will be offered complimentary for Zone Lab customers who have purchased 6 bottles of OmegaRx since January 1, 2012.

A new groundbreaking research study (attached) shows that OmegaRx® may be a “wonder drug” for the treatment of brain trauma. I was one of the co-authors of this study, which was published in the August issue of the prestigious Journal of Neurosurgery. This study demonstrated the remarkable ability of OmegaRx® to reduce brain damage induced by a concussion. It was shown that brain damage could be reduced by more than 98% if OmegaRx® was taken on a daily basis for 30 days after the injury. Brain trauma occurs more than 2 million times a year requiring more than 200,000 hospitalizations with more than 50,000 deaths per year. The causes range from car accidents to football concussions to simply falling off a bicycle. There is no known drug to treat these brain injuries, but now with adequate levels of omega-3 fatty acids, a new therapeutic approach is possible. More importantly, if OmegaRx® can treat brain trauma, then taking OmegaRx® on a daily basis will be the best way to prevent brain damage should accidental brain trauma be induced by events that occur in every-day life.
