FISH OIL Prevents Sudden Cardiac Death and Arrhythmias
Let’s talk about how omega-3 fats help support the heart and how to decrease the risk of sudden cardiac death and arrhythmias.

Health benefits of fish oil (omega-3 fatty acids):
• They are antiarrhythmic
• They are anti-inflammatory
• They trigger genes that can help turn off the fibrosis effect of the heart
• They are antithrombotic
• They support the endothelial layer in the arteries
• They can help make your cell membranes more fluid and less rigid

Omega-6 fatty acids are common in oils like vegetable oils and seed oils. These oils invade cell membranes and make them more rigid.

It’s crucial to have the correct ratio of omega-3 fatty acids to omega-6 fatty acids, which should be 1:1. The average person in the US has a 15:1 ratio of omega-6 fatty acids to omega-3 fatty acids.

Omega-6 fatty acids not only increase the risk of heart problems but many other health issues.

Omega-6 fatty acids also compete with omega-3 fatty acids. So keep in mind that the more omega-6 fatty acids you have in your diet, the less of an effect you will have from omega-3 fatty acids.

Foods high in omega-6 fatty acids:
1. Vegetable oils
2. Grain-fed animals
3. Grains
4. Nuts
5. Salad dressings
6. Mayonnaise
7. Hummus
8. Farm-raised fish
9. Restaurant food

Start increasing fish oils, especially cod liver oil, in your diet, include salmon and fatty fish in your diet, and avoid omega-6 fats to help support a healthy heart.
