One, Two, Omega3?s


Omega3 is an essential fatty acid.  Fatty acids are necessary for your overall health and wellbeing.  The problem is that the body cannot make them.  The only way to get the recommended minimum daily requirement is through food.  Omega3s are found in fish, some plants and nut oils.

Two fatty acids, EPA and DHA are primarily found in fish.  While ALA (alpha-linolenic acid) can be found in plant sources such as nuts and seeds. Not only do we need these fatty acids to function, there are many other health benefits as well such as:

  • can lower elevated triglyceride levels
  • curb stiffness and joint pain
  • boost the effectiveness of anti-inflammatory drugs
  • boost the effects of antidepressants

Some studies show that Omega3 may:

  • help protect against Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, and have a positive effect on gradual memory loss linked to aging
  • reduce the symptoms of ADHD
  • appears to be important for visual and neurological development in infants

Fish high in Omega3

  • Anchovies
  • Bluefish
  • Herring
  • Mackerel
  • Salmon (wild has more omega-3s than farmed)
  • Sardines
  • Sturgeon
  • Lake trout
  • Tuna

Plant/Nut based Omegas

  • Walnuts
  • Flaxseed and flaxseed oil
  • Canola oil
  • Soybean oil

Whole foods are always best, but some people find it hard to eat fish 2-3 times a week.  If you choose to supplement, make sure that your choosing a well researched, clean source of Omega3s.
