Fish oil: Fish oil is the oil found in many cold water fish, such as mackerel, tuna, salmon, sturgeon, mullet, bluefish, anchovy, sardines, herring, trout, and menhaden. It's rich in omega-3 fats -- essential to our diets because our bodies cannot make them. You can also get this in supplement form -- at least 1-2 grams of epa and 500mg dha per day if you have depression.
