Omega-3 Recommendations Updated


We haven’t posted in a few months due to an extensive update of Omega-3s Part 2—Research, and carefully reviewing and updating our omega-3 recommendations:

  • We’ve removed the recommendation to avoid oils high in omega-6 because the evidence for that requirement has been lacking.
  • For those wanting to follow more prudent recommendations, instead of recommending a DHA supplement as the only alternative, we now also include the option of increasing ALA by 2,000 mg per day.
  • We’ve added a table for the Dietary Reference Intakes for ALA for all age groups.
  • We added a table of plant foods that are plentiful in ALA.

The new recommendations can be found in Daily Needs.
