Omega-3 & Your Heart

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), by 2010 cardiovascular disease will be the leading killer in the developing world.  Arterial stiffness is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular events.  It can cause myocardial infarction and stroke—two of the leading causes of death in the world.

Cardiovascular benefits related to omega-3 have been researched in recent years.  The newest study suggests that consuming omega-3 along with a high fat meal can help with arterial stiffness.*

Seventeen healthy men ingested test meals high in fat along with omega-3.  The study concluded that independent of other changes, adding EPA to a high-fat meal could help decrease arterial stiffness. To order Viteyes® Omega-3 click here.
