The secret to fish oil benefits as part of a PCOS diet is healthy fat – namely omega-3 fatty acids in coldwater fish such as salmon, trout and tuna.
The top omega-3s are eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). These nutritional building blocks provide an anti-inflammatory boost and have a mild blood-thinning effect that are both important for women with a higher risk of a heart attack or stroke because of their PCOS symptoms.
Other omega 3 benefits are thought to include helping to lift depression and staving off Alzheimer’s Disease.
The fish highest in omega-3s are oily, cold-water species, including salmon, albacore tuna, mackerel, trout and sardines. But many people dislike the taste of fish, so omega 3 supplements may be the answer. Ask your doctor for advice about the right dosage for you personally.
