Fish oil reduces the incidence of cardiovascular diseases

29 January, 2014

ISLAMABAD: Omega-3 fatty acids are a vital nutrient important for our body. Intake of omega-3 fatty acids is essential as the human body cannot produce them and so one needs to get it from outside food that we consume.

Omega-3 fatty acids are abundantly found in fish, such as salmon, tuna and other seafood like algae and krill. Thus, it is generally advised to consume fish for good skin, better vision, sharp brain and what not.

Here are a few health benefits of consuming omega-3 fatty acids in your diet:

Researchers suggest that high concentrations of omega-3 fatty acids, derived from fish helps reduce the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.

According to a new study fish oil can soothe and prevent neuropathic pain caused by injuries to the sensory system.

Fish oil supports the functioning of white blood cells in the human body thereby strengthening the immune system.

Studies suggest that omega-3 fatty acids are effective in reducing the incidence of cardiovascular diseases (CVD).

Regular consumption of fish oil aids in reducing inflammation in the blood and tissues.
