You Can't Produce the Amount of Omega3 You Need to Survive!


  • Omega 3 fatty acids are essential for brain function, reducing chronic disease risk, and maintaining healthy cell membranes.
  • We can't produce enough Omega 3s and need to get them from food sources like fish, flaxseed, and walnuts.
  • Fish high in Omega 3s include salmon, tuna, and anchovies. Avoid fish high in mercury like marlin and swordfish.
  • Omega 3 supplements can improve heart health, reduce inflammation, and benefit brain development. Consult your doctor before taking any supplements.

Omega 3 fatty acids are critical for the health of cell membranes, it promotes brain function, and reduces risk of chronic disease.

Because we can't produce the amounts of Omega 3 we need to survive, let alone, thrive, this incredibly vital nutrient is termed "essential", as in Essential Fatty Acids. The only way your body can get Omega 3 is by what you consume and most people couldn't get the amount of fish every day so make up what your system needs to function well. 

Pregnant women on naturally formulated Omega 3 supplements, give birth to healthier children with good brain function.

Profiling Omega 3

Found both in plant and marine-based food and extracts, there are three recognized types of Omega 3 fatty acids;

  • ALA (Alpha-linolenic Acid) - canola oils, chia and flaxseed, soybean, walnuts and algae oil.
  • DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) - oily fish; salmon, tuna, anchovy, trout, herring, mackerel, whitefish, bluefish, sardines and sturgeon
  • EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid) - as above, which is a great 2-in-1 benefit.

Fishy Fast Fact: ALA is an essential omega-3 fatty acid meaning that your body can’t make it so you must get if from the diet. EPA and DHA are not considered essential since they can be produced from ALA; however, this process is not very efficient and therefore cannot be relied upon to produce significant amounts of EPA and DHA.

What About Mercury Poisoning?

To be sure, this is a very real issue, but you’d need to be consuming huge amounts of fish to induce poisoning. Still, pregnant women and young children should take the safe sources as listed in the Omega 3 profile heading. 

The risky types of fish we may as well all avoid, in alphabetical order, are Bigeye tuna, Blackfish, Black crappie, Catfish, King mackerel, Largemouth bass, Marlin, Orange roughy, Perch, Pikeminnow, Shark, Striped bass and Tilefish.

Fair warning - We don’t need to remind you, do we, never to take supplements without talking to your healthcare provider first. Your physician, or cardiologist, will know your particular risk factors and lipid levels.

Some lab-made supplements might;

  • Cause unpleasant side effects, such as atrial fibrillation.
  • Interfere with prescription medications including blood thinners.

meta-analysis, including data from over 10 studies, found that fish oil Omega 3 supplements lowered risk for heart attack and death from coronary heart disease.

Penn Medicine well states: "To say that taking a fish oil pill will cure all of your ailments, or even cure all of your heart-related ailments, is a stretch. Preventive care - including regular check-ups, a healthy diet, and exercise - is your best bet. But when it comes to dietary supplements, omega-3s have the potential to lower risk of heart disease (especially) individuals who have had recent cardiovascular events."
