How to Get the Most out of Your Omega-3’s

How many times this year have you committed to eating more fish? Now, how many times have you not eaten more fish? I bet the answer to both is a lot. Look, when it comes to nutrition, we always have the best intentions, but we rarely realize them.

Fatty fish is the best source for omega-3 fatty acids and eating a couple of 3.5-ounce servings of salmon per week is what most doctors recommend. But is that always enough? It really depends on what you want from it.

Because most North Americans don’t eat that much fish—it can be an acquired taste and rather pricey—they elect to supplement with a daily omega-3. And that’s great!

If you’re taking fish oil for overall general health, a daily dosage of about 250 mg per day, made up of EPA and DHA, is the minimum you’ll need to see any therapeutic benefit. If you’re eating salmon, tuna, or other fatty fish twice per week, you’re covered. But once again, that’s the absolute minimum we’re talking about for general health.

Do any of you give your kids who have ADHD certain supplements?

I've been reading that kids with ADHD tend to lack in Omega 3's and 6's and DHA and they should receive this supplement daily.

Anyone know anything about this?

No, I don't but it is worth looking into. My daughter who is six has ADHD and is taking medication. I am afraid to mix anything including vitamins with her medication because not sure what affect it would have on her.
