Omega-3 fatty acids tied to longer life, study finds

Omega-3 fatty acids tied to longer life, study finds | Longevity science | Scoop.it

A new study suggests adults with the highest levels of omega-3 fatty acids in their blood are less likely to die from a range of causes than those with the lowest levels.

 

Researchers found people with the most circulating omega-3s - usually found in oily fishes such as tuna or sardines - lived about two years longer than those with the lowest levels, on average.

Heart Failure Findings Favor Omega-3s over Statin Drug

Heart Failure Findings Favor Omega-3s over Statin Drug | Longevity science | Scoop.it

The American Heart Association and other leading health authorities recommend consuming fish oil and fatty fish high in omega-3 fatty acids, for two reasons:

 

1) To help prevent strokes and cardiovascular disease in healthy people.

 

2) To reduce the risk of stroke, sudden death, or a second heart attack among patients diagnosed with cardiovascular disease.

 

So consider salmon, mahi mahi, tilapia, or other sustainable fish for your summer grilling protein. They are delicious and will keep your heart healthy, your brain strong, and your eyesight sharp.
