3 Ways to add Omega-3s to your diet

1).Supplements

The Key omega-3 fats in fish are EPA and DHA.one third of fish oil in supplements is a combination of EPA and DHA. Look at the product labels and see how much of each you’re getting not all supplements are the same, some contain higher amounts of both so read the labels, pharmaceutical grade is supposed to be the purest form of fish oil I can’t verify that in this post. Nutritional Physicians recommend 1 gram a day for healthy people and 3 grams a day for those with diabetes and heart disease or inflammatory diseases.

2).Fish

One 3 oz serving of fresh or frozen canned salmon or sardines can provide between 1 and 2 gm of omega 3 fats with negligible levels of mercury.

3).Plant sources

Flax seed oil, chia seed and hemp are popular plant sources of omega 3 fats in the form of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) our bodies convert ALA to the EPA and DHA forms found in fish.
