Omega-3 FATTY ACIDS: there are 2 types of these. EPA and DHA. EPA is good for anti-inflammatory benefits. DHA helps improve brain function. Together they also work to reduce triglyceride levels and balance hormones.
I love getting these benefits from fish like Salmon. So here I am, catching myself some dinner. I can bounce back faster and recover quicker keeping muscle soreness to a minimum.....doing it the all natural way.
So HOW MUCH: you can get about 1,000mg from 2 to 3.5 oz of wild salmon. For supplements, up to 3,000mg a day is considered safe by the FDA. Don't love fish? Get your Omega 3s from avocado, flaxseed, chia seed, egg yolks and nuts! #nowyouknow
