Sources of Omega 3

June 21, 2019

Omega-3Õs come from things like fatty fish Ð like salmon, halibut, herring, sardines. But if youÕre a vegetarian or vegan, you might be finding your Omega-3Õs through things like flax seeds, walnuts, and hemp seeds. The Omega-3Õs found in plant sources are not officially converted in our bodies to the kinds of Omega-3Õs that are very beneficial like EPA and DHA. So if you are a vegetarian or vegan, you might want to supplement with algae oil. If youÕre a person who doesnÕt like to eat fish, you might also consider supplementing with fish oil but itÕs very important for you to find the highest quality source you can look for because many of the supplements that have fish oil in them can easily go rancid. So I recommend to my patients to find good brands that are pharmaceutical-grade that have high percentages of EPA and DHA.
