GOED Publishes EPA & DHA Intake Recommendations

Advice follows review of international standards to assure scientific validation.

04.25.16
The Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3s (GOED) 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);
  • 700-1000 mg for pregnant/lactating women and for secondary prevention of CHD;
  • > 1 g for additional health conditions such as high blood pressure or triglycerides.
