Trivia: Do you know that fish oil lowers high blood pressure?

Fish oil is a dietary supplement that gained popularity because of its ability to lower high cholesterol, which is a common concern among Filipinos.  

However, are you aware that fish oil also helps fight high blood pressure?  Consider that your trivia for today. 

Fish oil helps fight blood pressure because of the generous supply of omega-3 fatty acids that it contains.  Omega-3 fatty acids are a fusion of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).  

However, it is mainly EPA that is healthy for blood pressure because it helps your body create eicosanoids, which are hormone-like substances that act as blood thinners and have the capacity to fight inflammation.  Through it, your heart will not have any trouble pumping blood all throughout your system because it can flow efficiently. 

High blood pressure is a condition that many Filipinos face today.  It may be due to diet or stressful lifestyle; ageing or some medical condition.  Whatever it is that is causing high blood pressure, taking fish oil that is rich in EPA will definitely help.  

After all, high blood pressure should never be ignored because it may lead to more serious medical problems such as coronary heart disease, enlarged left heart, heart failure, aneurysm and the list goes on.

The thing is, our body is incapable of producing its own Omega-3 fatty acids.  That is why we rely solely on our diet to supply it to us.  The question is, how much fish do you consume in a week?  Is it giving you the recommended dose of omega-3 that your body needs to stay healthy?  

Considering the diet of the average Filipino, chances are your body is deprived of the very much needed supplement.  It is a good thing that your daily dose of fish oil can now be found in a bottle.
