If you’re looking for ways to reduce the risk of heart disease, think about eating more fish!
As you know, fish is a great source of protein. The American Heart Association recommends eating fish two times a week for adults who are not pregnant.
Fish such as salmon, mackerel, herring, trout, and sardines are high in “Omega-3 fatty acids”. These are special types of fats that are needed for normal metabolism.
Eating fish high in Omega-3 Fatty Acids may protect against heart attacks. Omega-3 Fatty acids actually reduce triglycerides. They also appears to help with blood pressure for patients who have high blood pressure (Hypertension).
There are even studies showing that Omega-3 Fatty Acids may help with depression and anxiety!
How does it work? The Omega-3 fatty acids appear to decrease the body’s inflammatory process that can cause damage to our body’s organs.
