Fish Oil for Heart Health

Adding fish oil to your diet and lifestyle could help reduce the risk of heart attacks and other coronary events.

Japanese researchers followed more than 18,000 patients with high blood pressure for four and a half years.

All were on statin drugs to help lower cholesterol.

They found those who supplemented the medication with fish oil had a 19% reduction in major coronary problems.

It is important to note that the patients in this study were all Japanese who generally eat much more fish than westerners.
