Omega-3 fatty acids have many health benefits.

The best way to get them is by eating fatty fish at least twice a week.

If you don’t eat fatty fish very often, you should consider taking a supplement.

However, it’s important to make sure your supplement contains enough EPA and DHA. EPA and DHA are the most useful types of omega-3s, and are found in fatty fish and algae.

This article reviews how much omega-3 (combined EPA and DHA) you need for optimal health.

Official Omega-3 Dosage Guidelines

There is no set standard for how much omega-3 you should get each day.

Various mainstream health organizations have released their own expert opinions, but they vary considerably.

Overall, most of these organizations recommend a minimum of 250-500 mg combined EPA and DHA each day for healthy adults (1, 2, 3, 4).

However, higher amounts are often recommended for certain health conditions.
