Don’t miss the fish!

Blue fish iconKeep on track with your heart health by adding fish to your diet. Fish is an excellent source of protein and is naturally high in healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Increasing your intake of omega 3-fatty acids has been shown to have multiple benefits. Some of these benefits include:

  • Decreasing the risk of arrhythmias
  • Lowering triglyceride levels
  • Reducing blood pressure
  • Slowing the growth of arterial plaque

Adding two 3.5 ounce servings of fish a week will provide your heart with multiple benefits. It is recommended that pregnant women and children be cautious about eating fish high in mercury but the benefits for middle-aged or older men and women are strong.

For those who don’t appreciate the taste of fish, adding a supplement can be an alternative option. Be aware that you shouldn’t consume more than 3 grams of omega-3 fatty acids in capsule form without prior physician approval. Even then, it’s still better to get your omega-3 fatty acids from a healthy food source.

Find a physician near you to help you take charge of your heart health.
