Omega-3 Slashes Your Risk of Heart Failure

Increased intakes of omega-3 fats may reduce a woman’s risk of heart failure by about 25 percent, according to new findings.

The heart health benefits of omega-3 fats are well-documented. They have been linked to improvements in blood lipid levels, a reduced tendency of thrombosis, blood pressure and heart rate improvements, and improved vascular function.

Beyond heart health, omega-3 fats most notably EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), have been linked to a wide range of health benefits, including reduced risk of certain cancers, joint health, and improved behavior and mood.
