(WKBW/Cleveland Clinic) If there's something fishy about your food, that's a good thing!

Fish oils are packed with omega-3 fatty acids that can do wonders for your health.

Studies have linked fish oils to a lower risk of heart disease, high cholesterol, and even depression.

Doctors say fish oils come from the tissue of fatty fish like salmon, tuna, mackerel, and herring.

They say fish oils can lower inflammation in the body and lower the risk of developing inflammatory diseases.

Doctors recommend eating three servings of fish a week. If you don't like fish or you have a fish allergy, you can supplement with fish oil capsules.

Doctors say you can take up to 1000 milligrams a day.
