Sponsored: Omega 3's and Fish

There is a lot of talk about the  benefits of omega 3's when it comes our brains and cognitive health. Omega 3's may help reduce our risk of Alzheimer's disease and dementia. 

Fish is one of the richest sources of omega 3's.

The fish with the highest amounts of omega 3's per 4 ounce serving are:

• Anchovies

• Herring

• Mackerel (Atlantic and Pacific)

Related Items

• Sablefish (Black Cod)

• Salmon (Atlantic, Chinook, Coho)

• Sardines (Atlantic and Pacific)

• Swordfish

• Trout

Whether fresh, frozen or canned, eating seafood at least 2x per week is recommended by the US Dietary Guidelines.
