Why Omega 3 and Fish Oil?
According to the CDC, about 700,000 men and women die of heart disease in the U.S. each year. It’s the #1 cause of death. Atherosclerosis, the narrowing or blockage of the coronary arteries, is the most common cause of heart disease.
Emerging Research suggests Omega 3 fatty acids. . .
• Lower cholesterol
• Lower triglycerides
• Lower blood pressure
• Reduces risk of stroke
• Reduces risk of cardiovascular disease
There’s a lot you can do to have a healthy heart. Taking Omega 3’s from fish oil is a strong part of the steps you can take in preventing heart disease.
The American Heart Association states . . . .
“Omega 3 fatty acids benefit the heart of healthy people, and those at high risk of or who have cardiovascular disease.”
Prevention Is The Key
Get started today. Improve your diet, start exercising every day, learn to reduce stress, check your blood pressure at home, and stay informed. It takes a balanced approach to achieve the best possible cardiac health.
It’s important to understand that heart disease is a lifelong condition. It will steadily worsen unless you make changes in your lifestyle. Some risk factors you can change and some you can’t.
Some Risk Factors you Can’t Change
Two factors we can’t change are Age and family history. But many risk factors we can control, like blood pressure, smoking, physical inactivity, being overweight, diet and cholesterol.
We can dramatically lower our risk of heart disease simply by leading a healthy lifestyle. But even when we do everything we can, sometimes we need some extra help. Adding a high quality Omega 3 fish oil is just another part of what you can do.
It’s very important that you become your own health advocate. It seems every day we hear about younger and younger people having heart attacks. If you want to live a heart healthy lifestyle, become proactive and learn how to incorporate diet, exercise and supplements into your daily routine.
Keep in Mind . . .
Cardiovascular disease is not just about cholesterol, it’s also a chronic inflammatory condition. Other risk factors include family history, high blood pressure, stress, inactive lifestyle, diet, age, and race. Some of these factors we can change and others we can’t, but there are a lot of things we can do to help us avoid major heart disease.
