I 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:
- Chia Seeds
In addition to regulating cholesterol, omega-3 has been linked to improvements in the following conditions:
- Skin health
- Alzheimer’s disease
