FACT: Thousands of studies support the fact that Eicosapentaenoic (EPA) and docosahexanoic (DHA) omega-3 fatty acids, commonly found in fatty fish and omega-3 dietary supplements, can help support brain and eye function as well as heart health. Recent research has shown that fish oil may be beneficial in supporting cognitive function by helping the body manage stress and enhance mood. It may also promote a healthy complexion.The Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3s (GOED) recommends the following EPA and DHA daily intake of: 500 mg for healthy adults (to lower the risk of coronary heart disease); 700-1,000 mg for pregnant/lactating women and for secondary prevention of coronary heart disease; At least 1 g [The American Heart Association recommends 3 grams] for additional health conditions such as high blood pressure or triglycerides.

Today’s fisheries are faced with a range of severe problems, from over-fishing to chemical pollution and genetic mutation from toxic exposures. As noted by the producers of the film, “through intensive farming and global pollution, the flesh of the fish we eat has turned into a deadly chemical cocktail.””
OPTION TWO: Take a supplement [recommended]
LET THE BUYER BEWARE. Cheap supplements, like farm-raised fish, can be toxic.

Contaminants are generally extremely low in sardines and anchovies even before they go through an intense purification process.
