Clinical Trial Summary

This is a two-arm, double blind randomized 12-week study to supplement omega-3 (Eicosapentaenoic acid - EPA + docosahexaenoic acid - DHA) among 100 adults (age 18+) who had coronavirus-19 (covid-19) and are experiencing possible after-effects from post-acute sequelae of covid-19 (also called post-covid syndrome or long covid syndrome).


Clinical Trial Description

This is a double-blind, randomized controlled trial (RCT) with two treatment arms: Arm 1 - Omega-3 (Eicosapentaenoic acid - EPA + docosahexaenoic acid - DHA) - Dose is 2,100mg per day via 3 mini-capsules, 2x/day (a total of 6 mini-capsules per day). Each capsule has 252mg of EPA and 102mg of DHA. Support for dosing: - The American Heart Association (AHA) says taking up to 3 grams of fish oil daily in supplement form is considered safe; - Up to 5,000mg of omega-3 fatty acids per day is considered safe; - The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recommends consuming no more than 3 g/day of EPA and DHA combined, including up to 2 g/day from dietary supplements.
