Best source and dose

What is the best source and what is the correct dose?

Mackerel rich in Omega

Mackerel rich in Omega

Omega fatty acids can be found in fatty fish such as salmon, herring, mackerel, anchovies, sardines and to a lesser extent in tuna. They are also found in certain oils such as colza and olive oil. But cooking these oils tends to destroy them and can even produce adverse effects. Vegetarians should be warned that as the Omega 3 fatty acids can only be obtained from animal fats, so they should therefore look into taking supplements.

As a preventative measure it is recommended to consume fish which contain these fatty acids three times a week. Margerines which are rich in Omega 3 & 6 are also a good option. There is no reason to reduce the intake of red meat or other animal fats such as butter and cream.
