Fish Oil and Heart Health

If improving your heart health is one of your New Year’s resolutions, consider fish oil. Research shows that fish oil:

  • decreases triglyceride levels
  • lowers blood pressure
  • decreases the growth rate of plaques that clog arteries
  • improves blood vessel function
  • decreases the risk of irregular heartbeat, which can lead to sudden cardiac death

For best results, a high quality fish oil should be taken daily. Many clinical studies have shown that EPA and DHA from fish oil (two forms of Omega-3 fatty acids) reduce the incidence of cardiovascular concerns, including heart disease, heart attacks, and strokes.
