Omega 3 Benefits Plus Top 10 Omega 3 Foods List - DrAxe

Many people associate omega-3 with salmon. While this is one good source, wild salmon is now being heavily fished and so there is now a large incentive to raise salmon in farms. Eating farmed salmon usually opens up the possibility (and likelihood) of new toxic exposures - like PCBs, mercury, food dyes, and antibiotics. What many people don't realize is that wild meat - including grass fed beef - is a good source of omega-3. Keep the options open. Most Americans need more omega-3.



For supplemental forms (fish-sourced), I strongly support Minami omega-3 products. Also, Nordic Naturals has been a good product. Their oil comes from sardines, anchovies, and mackerel.

For vegans there are good options too. Flaxseed, chia, hemp, walnuts, and natto are a few food sources high in omega-3. Here are a few good supplements suggested by one of my patients:


Minami also makes a vegan product:
