If you have a family history of heart disease or if you have high triglyceride levels, then this message is for you!
In 1971, a team of Danish researchers found that a group of native people in the country had lower cholesterol levels and incidence of heart diseases than other people who lived in Denmark. A theory then arose: The indigenous people’s high marine-fat diet gave them the protections to their heart.
Since then, fish oil and omega-3 fatty acids, the health-boosting star component of fish oil, have been the subject of tens of thousands of researches exploring their health benefits.
It’s proven that Omega-3 fish oil contains both docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) which are essential nutrients that are important in preventing and managing heart disease. Studies also show that low concentrations of EPA and DHA in elderly people results in an increased risk of death from all causes.What is considered a family history of heart disease?
