Fatty fish has been recognized as a part of a heart-healthy diet for some time now. More studies are pointing to the benefits of including omega-3 essential fatty acids from fish in the diet.

Sudden cardiac death occurs over 50% of the time in people with previously unrecognized heart disease. Twice weekly consumption of fatty fish such as salmon can decrease these risks significantly.

Studies have also shown benefits of essential fatty acid supplementation to improve outcomes of treatment for patients with heart failure and coronary heart disease.

This article gives the details of using fish oil supplements for treating and helping to prevent heart disease.
