Healthy Living Tip #439

Eating fish or taking a fish-oil supplement is one of the simplest things you can do for good heart and brain health. Research from the National Institutes of Health Division of nutritional neurosciences suggests that eating (contaminant-free and not over-harvested) fish at least three times a week can help men nearly reverse their risk of dying from sudden cardiac death. And the essential fatty acids in fish have also been linked to reducing depression. If you can’t catch fish that often, take a fish-oil capsule containing the long-chain omega-3s DHA and EPA.
