Exciting research undertaken to assess the benefits of fish oil in helping to prevent cardiovascular disease indicates that the omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil is promising.
The research has shown that it may certainly reduce the risks of it. In particular, clinical studies have shown that omega-3 fatty acids help to lower triglycerides. As well they lower blood pressure, reduce the risk of arrhythmias which increase the risk of cardiac arrest, reduce plaque, help to prevent blood clots and improves endothelial function which supports the growth of new blood cells.
It is exciting that fish oil has been found to lower triglycerides as high levels of triglycerides have been found to increase the risk of heart attack.
Although omega-3 fatty acids can be obtained from sources other than fish oil, two of the most beneficial forms are only available from fish. Omega-3 can be included in the diet by eating fatty fish (such as salmon) three times a week. However you can take omega-3 supplements. Make that the companies use oil that is top quality and have all toxic metals and chemicals removed.
As always be sure to check with your doctor before beginning any new regimen.
