Save Your Heart By Eating This Luxurious Meal

Eating fish may lower your risk of heart attacks and strokes. Heart attacks and strokes are the two most common causes of premature death in the world. Fish is considered one of the most heart-healthy foods you can eat to maintain your heart at least two times per week. Fish contain omega 3 that reduces risk of heart attacks and strokes.

The omega 3 fatty acids are primarily incorporated into chylomicrons and enter the circulation via the lymphatic system. Once in the bloodstream, lipoprotein particles circulate within the body, delivering lipids to various organs for subsequent oxidation, metabolism or storage in adipose tissue.

Omega-3 fatty acids are a type of unsaturated fatty acid and reduce inflammation throughout the body. This is important because inflammation in the body can damage your blood vessels and lead to heart disease.

Omega-3 fatty acids benefit heart health by decreasing triglycerides, lowering blood pressure slightly, reducing blood clotting, decreasing your risk of heart failure risk, reducing irregular heartbeats. Eating at least two servings a week of fish, particularly fish that's rich in omega-3 fatty acids, appears to reduces the risk of heart disease which may cause cardiac death.
