Choose Fish for a Healthier Heart

Are you looking for ways to help reduce your risk of heart disease? Look no further than hearty healthy fish. Fish is a wonderful source of omega-3 fatty acids, and research has revealed that omega-3s can lower blood pressure and reduce triglyceride levels.

The American Heart Association recommends eating at least two servings of fish per week. The best choices are typically cold water fatty fish and include salmon, tuna, sardines, mackerel, and trout. Fatty fish are a better choice as they more omega-3 fatty acids than other types of fish.

If you just cannot stand the though of eating fish, other options for incorporating omega-3s into your diet include eating walnuts, flaxseed, canola oil, and omega-3 enriched eggs. You can also take a fish oil supplement, but look for supplements that are molecularly distilled to remove toxins such as mercury.
