Fish lovers are in for a treat! You can get a good amount of Omega-3 with: anchovies, bluefish, herring, mackerel, salmon, sardines, sturgeon, lake trout and tuna. The downside of having a strict fish diet is the absorption of too much mercury, which is poisonous to the body in high doses. The borderline is 7 ounces. Don’t eat more than that in a day. Other sources include: walnuts, flaxseed, canola oil, soybean oil.
Supplementation of Omega-3 Fatty Acids
For people who can’t eat fish (ex: allergies, have no access to fish, etc.), supplementation is highly recommended. The American Heart Association recommends 3 grams of fish oil per day. Don’t take more than that unless you discuss it with your doctor.
