Omega 3 Sources

Omega 3 Sources



There are many Omega 3 Sources of food. I will try and touch on the most popular. There are many popular dietary plant and animal omega 3 sources that are rich in essential fatty acids or omega 3. Flaxseed oil, fish , etc have epa and dha (types of omega 3) fats. I will also link to pages that give much more information for each choice.

Fish

The most important thing to mention here is that Fish is accumulating higher and higher levels of mercury and other heavy metals. So it is very important to make sure you eat the fish with the lowest known mercury levels coupled with the highest Omega 3 levels. This link gives the latest levels of mercury in fish. I personally do not eat fish. I think the mercury problem and the over fishing issues makes this decision easy. This however is a personal decision. You can find fish that are tested and have low mercury levels. I will give a link to find healthy Salmon. The link is in the Omega 3 Fish Obviously healthy fish is one of your best choices.

  • Salmon
  • sardines
  • Mackerel
  • Herring
  • Tuna
  • Bluefish

Krill

Vital Red Krill Oil, New Improved, Omega 3'sMy favorite omega 3 sources is Krill. Krill are tiny shrimp like things. Some of the largest animals on earth feed on Krill. Some whales love the Krill. So for me the best choice is Krill. Krill are on the bottom of the food chain and live for shorter periods of time. So they do not have high levels of Mercury. This makes Krill a great choice. Unfortunately it is quite hard to get yourself a can or pack of Krill. In fact I can’t remember the last time I saw Krill on the menu? So krill oil will be explained in the supplements section.

Krill also has very high levels of antioxidants to protect you from free radicals.

Flax Seeds

Flax is very rich in Omega 3. The problem is that it is in the ALA form. This must be converted to the beneficial EPA or DHA type. Some people convert the ALA better then others. If you have high Omega 6 levels (Bad Fats) you will not convert the ALA to the beneficial type very good. So you should go with a source with high levels of DHA and EPA. Flaxseed also has other health benefits that must be mentioned. It has beneficial fiber and its higher lignan content.

One important thing to mention about Flax is that it should be milled or ground as you use it. Fresh ground flax seed keeps the healthy oils in much better condition. So it is much healthier.

Omega 3 Salba. This is actually a trademark name for chia? I guess chia pets really are a good plant "Ch-ch-ch-chia!" Salba is very high in Omega 3, Protein, fiber and also chock full of vitamins. While researching salba I read where salba could take care of world hunger. Well it appears that salba could be another good source of Omega 3. It appears to be as healthy as Flaxseed. So it could be a good addition to add to the ehalthy diet.

Walnuts

Everyone's favorite omega 3 sources is Walnuts. Walnuts are a very tasty way to increase your Omega 3. Walnuts have also been linked to lower blood pressure among many other health advantages. I think this is an easy way to increase omega 3 levels. Now why do you never hear about Walnut oil? I guess the same reason you never see people eating a handful of Flax seeds.

Other Types

I have heard about emu oil. I have not had the chance to evaluate. I have also heard about seal oil. I think seals have enough problems running from Great Whites. Maybe we should leave them out of the discussion. Other good options exist. Another source of omega-3's is pasture raised beef, eggs and dairy. Another source of omega-3

Conclusion:

Many good Omega 3 Sources exist to increase you omega 3. I have tried to give you some of the pros and cons of the most popular. Many others exist but the above types seem to be the most available and popular. I will delve deeper into each of the above types in subsequent pages.

Grass Fed Food is surprisingly healthy for you. Unlike the grain fed animals – pastured animals eat as they did before mass production of animals. 85 – 95 percent of cows are confined instead of running around like they should. I would think that the percentage of other farm raised animals is about the same percentage. There are many problems with the confinement of animals. I will stay away from the happiness of the animals but you must think of that too.
