Omega-3s are fatty acids that provide great health benefits. They’re good for your heart, brain, eyes and the reduction of inflammation.
Many Americans are not in the optimal range of omega-3 consumption. Supplements may be necessary. Look for DHA and EPA on the label on fish oil supplements. Be sure to take your supplement with a meal.
Public health recommendations are that people should consume two fatty fish meals per week. The omega-3 levels in fish depend on what the fish eat. Wild-caught fish tend to have more omega-3s.
You can test your own omega-3 levels with the omega-3 Index test from Omega Quant.
