Did you know that the best way to make sure you and your family stay as healthy as possible is to eat nutritiously and make sure you are getting all the health benefits from the foods you choose?

Omega-3 found in certain fish has been shown to lower triglycerides, which are a type of fat found in your blood stream. Research has found that getting daily omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil can reduce triglyceride levels by 25%-30%. Omega-3 fatty acids have also been shown to slow down the growth of plagues in the arteries and reduce inflammation throughout the body.

There has been so much research done to validate the benefits of omega-3 , the FDA had approved a qualified health disclaimer in 2004, so that makers and distributors of foods can advertise that omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of heart disease.

Fatty fish contain omega-3. Fatty fish are typically cold water fish. The American Dietetic Association recommends the following fish to eat at least two 4- ounce servings a week of: salmon, mackerel, tuna, trout, herring, sardines. Four ounces of salmon alone provides 83% of the omega-3 you need each day.

It is important to remember that the way you prepare the fish makes a big difference in the benefits you will get from it. As always for any healthy cooking requirements the fish should be prepared either broiled, grilled or steamed. If you fry it, all the healthy benefits are eliminated. It is also important to remember that even with healthy foods you need to be mindful of calories and portions. You will gain weight if you overeat these or any other types of healthy foods.

If you feel you just can not eat fish then there are other foods which contain omega-3 as well. These foods are walnuts, flaxseed, canola oil, and omega-3 rich eggs.

Many individuals worry about taking the right supplements, but eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly is the best prevention and an Invest in Yourself strategy.
