About Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Omega-3 fatty acids, also known as polyunsaturated fatty acids, are essential to many of the body's functions, but cannot be synthesized by the body. Instead, to get the required amounts, they must be taken in from food or supplementation. Omega-3 fatty acids can be found in fish, such as salmon, cod, tuna, and halibut; other seafood including algae and krill; and some plant and nut oils. Omega-3 fatty acids play an important role in supporting cardiovascular and joint health, are important for brain function, and are crucial for growth and development.

Frequently Asked Questions about Omega-3

What are Omega-3 Fatty Acids?
Omega-3 fatty acids are essential fatty acids because they perform a number of essential functions in the body. Also known as polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), Omega-3 fatty acids play an important role in supporting heart, joint, and cognitive health.

What is the recommended dosage of Omega-3 fatty acids?
The typical American diet is rich in Omega-6 fatty acids and low in Omega-3 fatty acids, often making supplementation necessary. Depending on the reason for taking a fish oil supplement, recommended dosages can range from 500 mg to 3000 mg (3g). Doses exceeding 3000 mg a day, either from diet or supplementation, can actually increase risk of internal bleeding and should only be taken in consultation with and under the guidance of a healthcare professional. If you have or suspect a medical condition, please talk to your doctor before starting any kind of supplementation.

Is Omega-3 safe for long-term use?
When taken as directed, in conjunction with a sensible diet and exercise program, Omega-3 is generally recognized as safe (GRAS). However, caution is always advised in individuals who have or suspect a medical condition.

What are the contraindications for Omega-3?
Individuals who are or plan to pregnant, are or plan to be breastfeeding, those with a known or suspected medical condition, and those currently taking or planning to take prescription or OTC medications for any medical condition should use fish oil supplements only under the guidance of a healthcare professional. Individuals with a known or suspected allergy to fish and/or other ingredients in the fish oil supplement should find alternative ways to supplement their diets with Omega-3.

Does Omega-3 interact with any prescription medications?
Because fish oil may increase fasting blood glucose levels, diabetic individuals currently taking or planning to take diabetic medications should take fish oil only under the supervision of their healthcare provider. Fish o il may also interact with supplements and medications that lower blood pressure, block the absorption of fats to effect weight loss, and birth control pills. As a general rule, please do not self-diagnose, self-treat, or self-medicate, if you know or suspect a medical condition.
