Omega-3s for You and Me
We know that eating seafood high in omega-3 fatty acids is good for our health. Omega-3s can reduce the risk of heart disease by decreasing the risk of abnormal heart beats, decreasing triglyceride levels, slowing down the accumulation of plaque inside blood vessels, and slightly lowering blood pressure (1).
There are three main omega-3 fatty acids: alpha-linolenic (ALA), eicosapentaenoic (EPA), and docosahexaenoic (DHA).
Use these quick, simple and delicious tips to meet the American Heart Association’s recommendation to consume 3.4 ounces of fish high in omega-3s two times per week (1).
