Omega 3 Fatty Acids found in Fish come in several forms and have many health benefits. The top 3 forms are listed here from least suggested to most suggested:
1. Flaxseed Oil. While flaxseed oil may help keep the blood this and help with heart ailments, it does not provide all the other benefits that Omega 3 from fish oil offers.
2. Fish. Fish like Salmon, Tuna, and Mackeral are all rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, but they may also be high in contaminents such as mercury and dioxin.
3. Fish Oil Supplements. They are easy to take and have effective concentrations of Omega 3 essential fatty acids. Most are molecularly distilled for highest potency without toxicity. This then would be the best choice.
