Conditions that Omega-3 can help include:

ADHD, Cancer, Diabetes, High cholesterol, Infertility, IBD (inflammatory bowel disease), Alzheimer’s disease, Depression, Macular degeneration, Skin issues (eczema and psoriasis), Inflammation, Arthritis, Anxiety as well as heart disease. Pretty impressive list! 

Non-fishy omega-3 sources:

If you’re Vegan, Vegetarian or simply don’t like to fish products you may want to introduce the following foods to ensure you're including Omega-3 in your diet.

  • Flaxseed

  • Chia Seeds

  • Walnuts

  • Natto

How much Omega-3 should you take?

One or two portions of oily fish per week can provide you with your weekly recommended Omega-3 intake.

Although there are plant-based sources like flax oil, studies show that they are harder for our bodies to use than fish versions.

Look for brands giving the ­equivalent of eating one to two portions of oily fish a week, which is around 450 micrograms of EPA and DHA – the two main omega-3s – per adult daily dose.
