What Fish Oil Should I take? The Omega-3 Fatty Acid Craze
So Can You Get The Benefits Of Fish Oil From A Supplement?
The American Heart Association prefers a food-based approach to increasing intake, but supplements still have their place. According to Roberta Anding, MS, RD, Director of Sports Nutrition at Baylor College of Medicine/Texas Children’s Hospital, Studies have found benefits for both fish and fish oil. If an individual does not like fish, then clearly the supplement form is a better option and the majority of the benefits of fish oil can be gained this way. She adds that fish can contain mercury, which is detrimental to wellness, noting Additionally, it is cold water fish that contains the omega 3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, so eating tilapia from the Gulf (of Mexico) is not the same in (omega-3) content as wild Alaskan salmon. However, it’s best to get your omega-3s from dietary sources if you can, and consult your doctor before moving on to supplements.
