When you miss your recommended servings
• Nutrition authorities recommend eating two servings of fatty fish each week (like salmon) to get your omega-3’s for its benefits like cardiovascular health, brain health, and prenatal.
• If you want to enhance your weekly intake, simply take a dose of fish oil liquid or gel caps. One of these capsules a day will do. (Regardless of the source, the general recommendation is 250-500mg/day omega-3 for maintenance of basic health.)
