GOED, the Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3s, recently published an infographic detailing its recommendations for daily intake of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids.
The recommendations are a result of several years of discussion, and come after careful review and consideration of other international standards to assure scientific validation.
GOED’s recommendations are:
- 500 mg for healthy adults (to lower the risk of coronary heart disease).
- 700-1,000 mg for pregnant/lactating women and for secondary prevention of coronary heart disease.
- More than 1 g for additional health conditions such as high blood pressure or triglycerides.
