Higher Levels of Omega-3s Associated With Lower Blood Pressure

High blood pressure can lead to cardiovascular issues, including heart attack and stroke. A recent study suggests that higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids may be correlated with lower blood pressure in healthy young adults.


Participants in the study included 2,036 people between the ages of 25 and 41 who were of normal weight and had no other risk factors for high blood pressure, such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, or a BMI higher than 35. The researchers used gas chromatography to determine the Omega-3 Index of each participant.


Compared with individuals in the lowest Omega-3 Index quartile, individuals in the highest quartile had a systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure that was 4 and 2?mmHg lower, respectively. The median Omega-3 Index was 4.58%, which is lower than the 8% that is recommended for cardiovascular protection.


Researchers from the Cantonal Hospital of Baden led the study. It was published in the July 2018 issue of the Journal of Hypertension.


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.
