Omega-3's & Vitamin D - great for the heart

Omega-3 fatty acids comprise eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D demonstrate the ability to positively affect many health conditions but particularly those related to cardiovascular disease onset.

Research shows that EPA and DHA boost levels of the good cholesterol in the blood - good cholesterol is known as HDL cholesterol. EPA and DHA also decrease blood pressure and reduce inflammation as well as minimizing the risk of developing age-related macular degeneration.

So make sure you're eating plenty of oily fish such as salmon and mackerel or switch to healthy snacks of nuts and seeds. Alternatively opt for a supplement!
