Health Tip: Fish is Good for Your Heart

(HealthDay News) -- Adding fish to your diet can help reduce your risk of a heart attack. The American Heart Association recommends eating at least two servings a week of fatty fish, high in omega-3 fatty acids.

Fish that are particularly high in these heart-healthy compounds include mackeral, salmon, lake trout, sardines, herring and albacore tuna.

In studies, omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to slightly reduce blood pressure, reduce plaque buildup in the arteries, and lower cholesterol levels. They can also reduce the risk of potentially dangerous heartbeat irregularities.
