Omega 3 Fatty Acids & Cardiovascular Health

Since the first cross-cultural epidemiological studies in the 1970s 11,12, the body of evidence supporting the cardiovascular benefits of omega-3 fatty acids has never stopped to increase. Dyerberg reported that, the Greenland Inuit population, when compared with the population of Denmark, exhibited significantly improved heart functions, despite only moderate differences in blood cholesterol levels 12. Similar results were found among inhabitants of Greenland and Denmark who were followed for over 25 years 13.

In addition, studies among the Inuit of Nunavik, Quebec showed that progressive increases in levels of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA in plasma phospholipids reflected dietary intakes of these fatty acids and were beneficially associated with heart health 13.

The American Heart Association recommends eating fish (particularly fatty fish) at least two times (two servings) a week. Each serving is 3.5 ounce cooked, or about ¾ cup of flaked fish. Fatty fish like salmon, mackerel, herring, lake trout, sardines and albacore tuna are high in omega-3 fatty acids.

Many extensive medical studies show that Omega-3 fish oils are good for overall heart and cardiovascular health1-20. Omega-3 also supports healthy triglyceride levels 21-23 and is recommended by both The American Heart Association and The National Institutes of Health (NIH). CoQ10 has also been shown to support heart health.*24,25
