How to Get Your Omega-3s

What Does Your RDI Look Like: Omega-3s

Omega-3s fall into the category of healthy fats because they have so many benefits. These essential fatty acids reduce inflammation, stabilize your mood, lower your cholesterol, and have been found to reduce your risk of coronary heart disease. The RDI of omega-3s is 1.1 grams per day. It's easy to get your fill since omega-3s come from a variety of sources including fish, flaxseeds, walnuts, soybeans, and omega-enhanced foods. Are you getting enough?

I know I don't eat enough omega-3s...most of mine come from nuts and broccoli, but I take 2000 mg of fish oil daily to make sure I get enough.
