Need Omega-3 Fatty Acids? Try Fish!

Posted: Apr 06 2014

Whenever you read about seafood, you'll often hear about how they're beneficial thanks to an abundance of Omega-3 fatty acids. In fact, fish oil supplements are often sold specifically under the label of an Omega-3 supplement.

Obviously, Omega-3 is good for you. But what does it exactly do and why is it so beneficial? Omega-3 fatty acids are essential fatty acids, meaning they enable normal growth in humans. They're particularly important in the prenatal period for brain development, as well as adult recovery from injury, skin health, and vision. Specifically, Omega-3 is often recommended for:

Joint health and lubrication, both as a preventative and treatment

Anti-inflammatory, particularly following an injury

Eyesight health, particularly as you age

Anti-aging for skin, helping to smooth out wrinkles with healthier layers of skin

Heart health, for reduced triglycerides and cholesterol

Brain function, including aiding depression symtpoms

Not every fish is high in Omega-3 fatty acids. However, plenty of popular seafood choices can help you hit the daily recommended dosage of Omega-3. These include:

Mackeral (2.6 grams of Omega-3 per 3.5 ounces)

Trout (2.0/3.5)

Herring (1.7/3.5)

Bluefin Tuna (1.6/3.5)

Salmon (1.5/3.5)

Albacore Tuna (1.5/3.5)

Shrimp (0.6/3.5)

Yellowfin Tuna (0.4/3.5)

You'll probably recognize some of those types of fish -- after all, they're quite popular for sushi! In particular, tuna and salmon are popular for all different types of sushi.
