Fish, Calamari, Cod & Krill Oils
Essential fatty acids cannot be made by the body and therefore it is crucial we get an adequate amount from our diet. However, to be able to get enough EPA and DHA (the two main omega-3 fatty acids) from our diet, we should be eating fresh fish at least twice a week, if not more, and, unfortunately, this is often just not the case. Luckily, supplements are available to help bridge the gap between how much essential fat we need and how much we get from our food.
Why are omega-3 fatty acids so important? High concentrations of essential fats are present in our brain, and they are essential to healthy brain function. Not only this, but they also help to keep inflammation at bay, as well as supporting a healthy cardiovascular system. When it comes to supplements, we have various options, so which do we suggest? For general supplementation, heart health and anti-inflammatory benefits, fish oil at doses up to 6g (6000mg) per day is suggested. If you find that fish oil capsules are just too big, you could give Krill Oil a try. Krill Oil contains EPA and DHA in lower amounts, but because of its composition, these fatty acids are very absorbable. While it has some similar health benefits to fish oil, it also has the benefit of containing the potent antioxidant astaxanthin.
Some might consider cod liver oil to supplement their omega-3 intake. Derived from the liver of the Cod fish, rather than the flesh, this oil has the benefit of also being a natural source of vitamins A and D. It is evident that there are several fish oil/omega-3 supplements to choose from. If you are still uncertain which is the best supplement for you, our friendly naturopaths are available to help.
