Fish Oil Supplements Help Prevent a Second Heart Attack

by Jodee on April 6, 2009

If you have already been unfortunate enough to have suffered a heart attack, taking a fish oil supplement may help to prevent a recurrence. Taking one gram of Omega-3 fatty acids daily will lower your risk of a second heart attack by 45 percent.

This substance cuts fats in the blood and reduces the occurrence of blood clots. This form of therapy is recommended for people who have had a heart attack in the previous 90 days and who are not eating enough fish in their diet. Omega-3 fatty acids are found in fish, as well as English walnuts, canola, soybean, and flax seed oils.
