MEG-3® and Heart Health
One of the best ways to help support heart health is to eat a diet low in saturated and trans fats and to focus on eating foods that are rich in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, like Omega-3 fatty acids – the good fats. Research has shown that Omega-3 fatty acids play a role in maintaining normal triglyceride levels, heart rate and blood pressure.
The Omega-3s – eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) – contribute to the function of the heart and to the maintenance of normal blood pressure. Internationally recognized regulatory and health organizations, including the American Heart Association, the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), and the US National Institutes of Health (NIH), support the recommendation to consume fish and/or fish oil capsules like MEG-3® as a part of a heart-healthy diet.
