Medical information

The Food Standards Agency recommends people eat at least two portion (140 grams each when cooked) of oily fish per week. This is more than 3 grams of omega-3s. People who have had a heart attack are advised to eat 2-4 portions oily fish per week. This is at least 7 grams omega 3s.

It is reasonable to take omega 3 tablets as a supplement if these dietary recommendations are not being met.

Detailed guidance on recommended dietary intake of fish, types of fish, intake for males and females, and omega 3 in pregnancy can be found at the NHS Choices website.

There are conflicting opinions on the benefits of taking omega-3s. If taken within three months of a heart attack there is a protective effect. There is no clear-cut evidence that omega-3 supplements reduce heart disease in otherwise healthy people. See NHS NPC review article (archived).
