Can eating fish keep your heart healthy?

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.
