Vegetarian sources of fish oil

Q: I’m a vegetarian. Is there a vegetarian substitute for fish oil?

A: Vegetarian sources provide ALA (Alpha-Linolenic Acid) which is a different omega 3 fatty acid than the DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) and EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid) found in fish oil. An easy to find oil that is rich in ALA is flax seed oil. For more information click here.
