Get fishy. It’s well known that omega-3s from fish oil (EPA and DHA) are helpful to treat depression, but some studies suggest fish oil may be very effective against anxiety too, along with it’s main role in preventing against inflammation.

What You'll Need

  • Fish: Salmon, Mackerel, Anchovies, Sardines or Herring
  • Or supplement with 1,000 mg daily if you are deficient. Make sure you use a reputable brand and check with your health care provider before starting to use these supplements.

What You'll Do

  • Aim for 3 portions a week of wild SMASH fish (salmon, mackerel, anchovies, sardines or herring) but if you know you don’t eat anywhere near that amount, consider having your levels tested as you may benefit from a good quality omega-3 supplement. A good starting dose is 1,000 mg daily if you are deficient.
