Omega 3 is beneficial for heart health

We recommend including fish as part of a balanced diet to get the most benefit from Omega 3.

In response to a new study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology¹ on the benefits of Omega 3 to heart health, Victoria Taylor, senior dietician at the British Heart Foundation, said:

"This paper reinforces the message that Omega 3 is good for heart health.

"Oily fish, such as salmon, mackerel or sardines, is a nutritious source of Omega 3.

"Current UK guidelines state that the general population should have two portions of fish a week, one of which should be oily, whilst those who've had a heart attack should have two to three portions of oily fish a week."
