A Diet Rich in Omega-3 Promotes Healthy Blood Pressure

Love to eat healthy fats? Your heart may be thanking you. According to a new study, eating plenty of beneficial Omega-3 fatty acids in your 20s, 30s and 40s supports healthy blood pressure levels with age. Blood pressure is an important indicator of cardiovascular health.

Researchers in Switzerland analyzed more than 2,000 healthy men and women between 25 and 41 years old and determined that those whose diets were highest in Omega-3 had the lowest blood pressure. “This suggests that promoting diets rich in Omega-3 foods could be a strategy to prevent high blood pressure,” said Dr. Mark Filipovic with the University of Zurich.

Omega-3-rich foods include oily fish (such as salmon, trout and herring), walnuts, flax and chia seeds, Brussels sprouts, spinach and kale. A high-concentration, purity-guaranteed fish oil supplement may also help boost your daily intake of beneficial Omega-3 fats.*
