The American Heart Association recommends that people eat fish, especially fatty fish, at least twice a week. Omega-3 in fish is good for healthy people, as well as for those at risk for cardiovascular disease and those who already have cardiovascular disease. Omega-3 has been linked to protection from stroke and heart attack, better brain function, less depression, improvement in symptoms of ADHD, and reduced breast, colon and prostate cancer.
Ideally you should get your omega-3 from eating fish, but you can take fish oil supplements. Although fish oil is good for you, fish oil liquid does not always taste so good. Fortunately there are ways to make fish oil liquid taste better.
Prepare yogurt smoothies with yogurt, fruit and orange juice. Add the fish oil just before serving.
Mix the fish oil into creamy foods such as yogurt, applesauce, pudding or salad dressing.
Buy a flavored fish oil liquid. Fish oil liquids are available in lemon, citrus and strawberry flavors.
Purchase flavored alternatives to fish oil liquid. Fish oil supplements are available in flavored chewables, pudding-like packets of fish oil, gummies and chocolate truffles.
