Foods rich in omega3 fatty acids

Top Foods Rich in Omega 3 Fatty Acids

Omega-3 Fatty AcidsFish, fish oil, and some canola oils are good sources of this fatty acid, a group of fatty acids found in every cell in the body. Today, numerous studies support the role of omega 3s in infant development, brain function, joint discomfort, and other conditions. Omega 3 fatty acids are composed of 3 acids. As long as we eat foods rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, our body will break them down into 3 acids: EPA, DHA and ALA.

EPA: Fish and fish oil are the richest sources of this fatty acid. Both fresh and saltwater fish have high EPA content ranging from 39 % to 50 %. DHA: This fatty acid is found in fish oil and red-brown algae. It is a major type of omega 3 fatty acid found in many parts of the human body. For example, DHA is found in eyeballs (retina). The human brain is made up of about 65 % fat, and out of this, 50 % is DHA. ALA: Flaxseed is a very rich source of ALA. This fatty acid is also present in small quantities in hemp, walnut, soybean and canola oil. Some green leafy vegetables are also rich in ALA as well.

Sources of Omega 3 Fatty Acids

The human body cannot produce omega-3 fatty acids on its own. Our body has to rely on the food we eat for a supply of these Omega-3 fatty acids. Here are the top sources of omega 3 fatty acids you can consider including in your diet to avoid a deficiency.

ANIMAL SOURCES 

Oily fish is the richest source of long-chain omega-3s, which may help support heart health. For pregnant or breastfeeding mothers, omega 3 is very important, it helps the baby's brain function to develop properly. Experts recommend eating at least one serving of fish a week, about 140g. Most oily fish, such as salmon, have edible bones that provide your body with calcium and phosphorus, which help build strong bones. Oily fish rich in omega-3s include: herring, salmon, sardines, trout, mackerel, etc. Shellfish rich in omega-3 fatty acids include mussels, oysters, squid, and crab. White fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids include: sea bass, sea bream, turbot, flounder, etc.

NOTE: Steamed, baked or grilled fish is a healthier choice than fried fish. Frying can increase the fat content of fish and shellfish.
