Many foods have Omega3 fatty acids. A diet high in certain fish, seeds, and nuts can help you get more omega-3s.

Omega-3 fatty acids have various benefits for your body and brain.

Many mainstream health organizations recommend that healthy adults consume at least 250–500 mg of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) per day. You can reach that amount by eating two servings of fatty fish per week.

You can get high amounts of omega-3 fats from fatty fish, algae, and several high fat plant foods.

For plant-based omega-3s, the Adequate Intake is 1,600 mg for males and 1,100 mg for females, according to the National Institutes of Health.
