Fish Oil & Omegas
Fish oil is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are very important for your health. Omega-3 fish oil contains both DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid). Omega-3 fatty acids are essential nutrients that are important in preventing and managing heart disease by:
- Lowering blood pressure
- Reducing triglycerides
- Slowing the development of plaque in the arteries
- Reducing the chance of abnormal heart rhythms
- Reducing the likelihood of heart attack and stroke
- Lessening the chance of sudden cardiac death in people who already have heart disease.
If you don't eat a lot of oily fish, taking a fish oil supplement could help you get enough omega-3 fatty acids.
