Jan Challenge Day 5 | Eat your Omega 3's

Posted by Health Boutique on

Omega 3 fatty acids are essential to your overall health. A University of Marylands study suggests suggests that EPA and DHA (eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid), the two omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil help reduce risk factors for heart disease, including high cholesterol and high blood pressure. When possible, try to get omega-3 fatty acids from foods rather than supplements. Aim to eat fish high in DHA and EPA omega-3 fatty acids two to three times a week.

Good sources of Omega 3 include -

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