Medical information

This consultation has been suspended in light of new information from studies (18 July 2018). See what the experts say.

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).
