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.
