According to the World Health Organization, about 1/3 of all deaths are connected with cardiovascular diseases. However, most of the inhabitants of Russia have never heard of heart-related problems. The secret is in a product that everyone has heard of — fish oil. Fish oil contains irreplaceable fatty acids like omega-3 and omega-6 that help keep our heart and vessels healthy.
smartzune.com decided to find out more information about our body and learned about some amazing effects fish oil can have if we take it regularly.
1. The risk of having heart disease will decrease.
Gender. Some risk factors may affect heart disease risk differently in women than in men. For example, estrogen provides women some protection against heart disease, but diabetes raises the risk of heart disease more in women than in men.
Race or ethnicity. Certain groups have higher risks than others. African Americans are more likely than whites to have heart disease, while Hispanic Americans are less likely to have it. Some Asian groups, such as East Asians, have lower rates, but South Asians have higher rates.
The enumeration of the healthy properties of fish oil always starts with its positive effect on the level of cholesterol in the body — the amount of “harmful” cholesterol drops. The fatty omega-3 and omega-6 acids that fish oil contains decrease the risk of heart disease because the level of triglycerides drops, the appearance of plaque on the insides of the arteries dissipates, and blood pressure decreases.
