The Best Sources of Omega-3 Fatty Acids

The Best Sources of Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Omega-3 fatty acids have received a lot of attention lately for their health benefits – and for a good reason! These polyunsaturated fatty acids have been linked to lowered levels of inflammation, risk for cardiovascular disease and even memory loss.

For the most part, the standard American diet is very deficient in omega-3s. By increasing your intake of omega-3s through food sources, you can drastically improve your overall health. Although this nutrition topic is very complex and expanding constantly, the main thing we know is this: increasing your consumption of the following omega-3 rich foods will increase your body’s omega-3 supply, in turn improving your health and well-being.

Fatty Fish: Albacore tuna, mackerel, anchovies and fresh-caught salmon are the best sources of omega-3s. These types of fish eat a less soluble form of omega-3s (ALA) through seaweed and convert it to the most beneficial forms for our bodies (EPA and DHA). Eating these types of fish, or supplementing with a 1,000-1,500 mg daily dose of fish oil, is an excellent way to improve your health.

Almonds: In addition to being an excellent source of antioxidants, protein, and beneficial vitamins and minerals, almonds are also an excellent source of plant-based omega-3s.

Flax Seeds: These fiber and omega-3-packed seeds can easily be added to your diet by sprinkling them on oatmeal, cereals, salads and smoothies. Just make sure to grind or buy already ground flax seed so your body can fully absorb the amazing nutrients flax has to offer.

Chia Seeds: These seeds may be one of the smallest and most nutritious foods in the world. Chia seeds contain 10 grams of fiber in just 2 tablespoons, and are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, as well as iron, calcium and magnesium.

We’re crazy about Omega-3 fatty acids which is a big reason why chia seeds are a key ingredient in all of our Betsy’s Best Peanut, Almond and Seed Butters. Each serving contains all of your daily Omega-3 needs!
