      Which foods are very high in Omega-3?

      Omega-3 fats are very good for health and it's important to add them to your diet. Experts recommend a minimum of 250–500 mg of omega-3 every day for healthy adults. Good sources of this are fish, algae, and several high-fat plant foods.

      Mackerel

      Mackerel are fish that' are rich in nutrients, as little as a 3.5-ounce (100-gram) serving contains 200% of the Reference Daily Intake (RDI) for vitamin B12 and 100% for selenium. One piece of salted mackerel contains 4,107 mg of omega-3.

      Salmon

      Salmon is very rich in omega-3 fats. 4,123 mg of it is found in half a fillet of cooked, farmed Atlantic salmon, or 2,260 mg in 3.5 ounces (100 grams). This also has plenty of high-quality protein besides many essential nutrients such as vitamin D, selenium, and B vitamins.

      Cod liver oil

      This is usually consumed in supplement form. It has plenty of omega-3 fats besides vitamins D and A. In fact, just consuming a single tablespoon gives you 170% and 453% of the RDIs, respectively.

      Sardines

      These are small, oily fish but pack in quite a punch when it comes to omega-3 fats. 

      They contain 2,205 mg per cup (149 grams) and when it comes to canned Atlantic sardines, it's 1,480 mg per 3.5 ounces (100 grams). 

      Caviar

      These fish eggs are considered quite a luxury and have plenty of omega-3 fats besides choline. They have 1,086 mg of omega-3 per tablespoon.

      Chia seeds

      These are small powerhouses of nutrition with  5,060 mg of omega-3 fats per ounce (28 grams) besides plenty of manganese, selenium, magnesium and other nutrients.

      Flax seeds

      These are considered the richest whole-food source containing the omega-3 fat alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). This is the reason that flaxseed oil is used by many as an omega-3 supplement.
