Fish & Fish Oils: The Ultimate Health Food

It’s low in calories, high in protein, and packed with vitamins and minerals, but these aren’t the only reasons why fish may be the ultimate health food. The oils in fish, omega-3 fatty acids, hold promise in the battle against heart disease. Omega-3 fats may also help in the treatment or prevention of rheumatoid arthritis, migraine headaches, high blood pressure, kidney disease and breast cancer. 

The name sounds like a space age wonder, but omega-3 fats are just a type of unsaturated fat found almost exclusively in marine animals and plant life. Medical researchers think that fish oils can help fight heart disease by lowering levels of blood cholesterol and triglycerides (fats), and by making cells less “sticky” and therefore less apt to form clots. 

Cold Water Fish Are the Best Source
While all fish and shellfish contain omega-3 fats, cold-water fish are the best sources. To preserve the healthful benefits of seafood, opt for grilling, baking or broiling instead of frying. Adding large amounts of oil or margarine to fish can reduce the potency of omega-3 while increasing the calories. Since it’s uncertain how much omega-3 is needed for optimal health, health experts suggest skipping the fish oil pills and including seafood meals at least once a week.

  • Good - Cod, flounder and haddock have the least omega-3 fats since they are so lean, but they’re still a healthful addition to any diet.

  • Better - Turbot, bluefish, striped bass, shark, swordfish, rainbow trout, oysters, lobster, shrimp, mussels and squid contain moderate amounts of omega-3s.

  • Best - Anchovies, herring, mackerel, salmon, sturgeon, sardines and tuna are highest in omega-3 fats. Even canned tuna, especially albacore tuna, is a good source of omega-3 fats.
