My 5 Favorite Natural Food Sources of Omega-3

wp-image--299764600I mentioned in a previous post the top ways to reduce cholesterol naturally.  One of those ways was to consume a fish oil supplement containing Omega-3 oils.  I personally take Advocare’s OmegaPlex, which you can order here.  Life Extensions also makes a good supplement that contains a good balance of EPA and DHA.  A majority of omega-3 sources are fish based and many of the best forms are in supplements because the oils can be extracted and taken in a concentrated form.  I suggest doing some research on the ALA/EPA/DHA quantities though since all omega-3 supplements are not created equal.

However since I always prefer and believe it’s best to get what I need straight from the source, the following are great FOOD sources of omega-3 oils:

  • Mackerel
  • Salmon
  • Chia Seeds
  • Walnuts
  • Tuna

In addition to regulating cholesterol, omega-3 has been linked to improvements in the following conditions:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • ADHD
  • Cancer
  • Skin health
  • Diabetes
  • Inflammation
  • Arthritis
  • Infertility
  • Alzheimer’s disease
