High Blood Levels of Omega-3s May Result in Lower Blood Pressure

High blood pressure is a key risk factor for cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of death in the United States. Preliminary data for a recent study suggests that eating a diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids might help prevent the onset of high blood pressure, even in young people.

Participants in the study included 2,036 young, healthy adults who whose diets and blood pressure levels were observed by researchers. The researchers found that the participants who were in the highest quarter of consumption of omega-3 fatty-acids in the blood had approximately 4 mmHg lower systolic and 2 mmHg lower diastolic blood pressure when compare with participants in the lowest quarter.

They also noted an overall correlation between higher omega-3 fatty-acid levels and lower systolic and diastolic blood pressure.

Researchers from the University of Zurich conducted the study. It was presented at the American Heart Association’s Scientific Sessions 2016.

Omega-3s have been linked to a number of health benefits, including improved mood, improved joint mobility, reducing the risk of age related macular degeneration, and aiding your immune system.

Because omega-3 fatty-acids are not found naturally in the human body, it is especially important to make sure that they are a part of your daily diet. Oily, dark fish such as tuna and salmon are high in omega-3s. For people who don’t like fish, consider taking a daily high quality non-fish supplement that has been tested for purity and potency.
