Hello, Anon! Thank you for posting today.

The best way to get Omega-3 fatty acids is by eating fatty fish at least twice a week. If you don't eat fatty fish very often, you might consider taking a supplement. It's important to make sure your supplement contains enough EPA and DHA for health benefits. While there is no official recommended daily allowance of omega-3s, most health organizations agree that 250–500 mg of combined EPA and DHA is enough for adults to maintain overall health. Your health care provider can tell you more.
