omega3???

mikedNovember 28, 2001

Has anyone heard of the omega 3 acid/oil???. I believe it's derivde from fish oil. I was wondering if there are certain types of fish that have a higher concentrate of this oil, and if so, which ones?

Thanks for you help with this question.

You can get omega 3 from certain oily fish e.g. salmon or certain seeds e.g. flax seeds (or flax oil or Udo's oil - I take a tablespoon of udo's oil every day and sprinkle sunflower and flax seeds in my cereal)

I cut and paste this info from an article but there is lots of info out there on this subject, type it into a search engine and you fill find loadds of links:

The chart below gives the amount of Omega-3 fatty acids youÂd expect to find in a fish. About 20% of the Omega-3 fatty acids in these fish will be EPA, so you need to get about 6g of Omega-3Âs to reach the Âprevention level. This is equivalent to eating 250g of mackerel a week.

Fish (3.5oz, 100g, uncooked)
Omega 3s (g)

Mackerel, Atlantic

Herring, Atlantic
1.7
