Omega 3 – The Essential Fat
Omega-3 fats have the ability to change the chemistry of your blood. First, they lower blood levels of triglycerides, the fatty portions of the blood. Second, they decrease the stickiness of certain blood cells and they make red blood cells less rigid. Third, they lower blood pressure. And last, but not least, there is some evidence that they may reduce the risk of arrhythmia.
One study reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that people consuming one fatty fish meal per week had a 50% lower risk of cardiac arrest compared to those who didn’t eat fish! And those who consumed the greatest amounts of omega-3 rich fish reduce their risk ever further – by as much as 70%!
