Love Those Omegas

Preliminary research indicates that omega-3 fatty acids may decrease the risk of stroke and heart attack. Omega-3 fatty acids may also protest against arrhythmias (abnormal heart rhythms), the leading cause of death after heart attacks. Omega-3 fatty acids may provide protection by enhancing the stability of the heart cells and increasing their resistance to becoming overexcited. In the Physician's Health Study, those who ate fish just one to two times per week had a 40 percent reduction in sudden deaths from cardiac arrhythmias. Foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids include dried butternuts, black walnuts, green, raw soybeans, sardines, lake trout, Chinook salmon, and cooked pinto beans.      

Have a great day and as always, To Your Health!
