How Fish Might Save Your Heart

 Families that have a history of heart disease may benefit from eating more oily fish, which include salmon, mackerel, herring, and sardines. These oily fish contain high levels of omega-3 fatty acids, these cannot be produced by the body and therefore have to be obtained through the diet. Studies showed that individuals that had low levels of omega-3s were at a higher risk for heart disease. Those that presented higher levels of omega-3 were at less of a risk for heart disease. The prevention of diseases could be attained through a healthy lifestyle in some circumstances, there is no guarantee of this, but it could decrease the likelihood. These fatty acids have been linked to a stronger immune system, reduced inflammation, lower blood pressure, and improved cholesterol counts. 

Any ways to find preventions or lowering the risks of disease of any sort is very crucial. Based on this, someone had the risk, or already presented with, higher blood pressure and higher cholesterol, along with the risk of heart disease, this prevention supplement could help them in their daily life. This would be a beneficial way to take out a few of those concerns, or at least reduce them.

  2. This article is very helpful and needs to be addressed more! People that have these types of conditions need to know that there are other options available for them even if they aren't mentioned by medical professionals.
