I can’t think of a single food or supplement that is more important for heart health than omega-3s from fish. That is saying a lot – considering my 34 (and counting) years working in nutrition education. But I stand by my statement. Fish oils are the most important supplement you can take to support a healthy heart.
How do the omega-3s EPA and DHA love your heart? Let me count the ways.
When you think about being heart smart, consider this. We observe healthier hearts in cultures that eat more fish. When those people move to the United States and adopt our diet, their hearts typically become less healthy. Boosting omega-3 intake is a gift that keeps on giving. Your precious heart deserves the very best. Bless it every day with Carlson omega-3s, providing EPA and DHA.
