Omega-3s: You May Have Low Levels & Not Know It

Playing Omega-3s: Do You Have Low Levels?

Our body does not produce Omega-3s, but they are essential nutrients we all need.

According to one recent survey, while many people believe Omega-3s are important to their health, many have low levels. This may be due to Omega-3s missing from the average person's diet.

Omega-3s are important because they can help cardiovascular health by supporting healthy blood flow. They may also play a crucial role in cognitive brain health.

Dr. Andrew Ordon explains some ways to get Omega-3s and reap their benefits. One way, he says to add Omega-3-rich foods like walnuts, soybeans and cold water fish (salmon, sardines, and mackerel) to your diet. The American Heart Association recommends at least two, three and a half ounce servings of fish per week. He also notes that certain brands of bread, milk, and yogurt are also enriched with Omega-3s and may contain around 10 to 40 milligrams per serving.

Some may find that diet alone is not enough and an Omega-3 supplement may help them get what their diet may be lacking.

As always, talk to your doctor before taking any supplements.
