Recommendations For Omega-3s

Recommendations For Omega-3s At a symposium appropriately named A Fish A Day Keeps The Doctor Away, speakers debated benefits of the omega-3 fatty acids known as eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). The consensus at this event organized by the European Association for Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation was a recommendation that people consume fish at least twice a week, with one of those meals consisting of salmon, mackerel, herring, trout, sardines or another oily fish.

True Strength Moment: If you live near the ocean or one of the Great Lakes, it's easier to get fresh fish. Frozen is another alternative, but fish oil supplements are also an option, especially for those who don't look forward to seeing seafood on the dinner table. The recommendation for supplements is 1 gram of fish oil per day.
