Yes, see below: Yes, there's good reason to believe fish oil is helpful in helping heal from head trauma. A good dose to try is 3000 mg of EPA/DHA per day so I advise at least 3 of the ones with 615 mg 2x/day with food. One of those could be the one with A & D but you would not want more than one of those a day to avoid excess A & D. See http://www.brainhealtheducation.org/resources/brain-injury-protocol/
