Wild Salmon and Other Omega-3-Rich Foods

Wild-caught salmon is an excellent source of EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), two potent omega-3 fatty acids that fight inflammation; anchovies, mackerel and sardines are good runner-up fish sources of omega-3s. Flaxseeds and walnuts supply ALA (alpha-linolenic acid), which can be converted into EPA and DHA inside the body, but not in quantities that rival the health benefits of the DHA and EPA found in fish oils.
