Omega-3 / Fish Oil
When it comes to fat, there’s one type you don’t want to cut back on: omega-3 fatty acids. Two crucial ones — EPA and DHA — are primarily found in certain fish. ALA, another omega-3 fatty acid, is found in plant sources such as nuts and seeds. Not only does your body need these fatty acids to function, but also they deliver some big health benefits.
Although we all know Omega 3 is very important, we have lack of knowledge how to choose the right dosage of omega 3. A book ” The Omega 3 Effect” written by Dr William Sears and Dr James Sears has explained all facts about Omega 3.
As we all want to live as healthfully as possible, in THE OMEGA-3 EFFECT, Dr. William Sears turns his attention to the critical role that omega-3s play in the body. Dr. Sears takes readers through each body system-including the brain, heart, joints, skin, and immune system-and demonstrates how omega-3s are essential to each. THE OMEGA-3 EFFECT also offers tips on what foods and supplements readers should incorporate into their diet, as well as several delicious recipes. Written in the wise, accessible tone that has made his books long-term bestsellers, Dr. Sears offers a practical and science-based approach to living a more healthful life.
How much do you need to take: According to the book a healthy person should consume about 1000 mg Omega 3 fats per 2000 calories / day. So, an active person burning 3000 calories/day would need about 1500 mg of Omega 3 fats daily. Similarly, a person burning 1500 calories/day would need about 750 mg of Omega 3 fats daily
