Omega-3 fish oil contains both DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and (EPA) eicosapentaenoic acid. Omega-3 fatty acids are essential nutrients which are important in preventing and managing heart disease.
Omega-3 has also been found to:
Lower blood pressure
Reduce the likelihood of heart attack and stroke
Slow the development of plaque in the arteries
Reduce the chance of abnormal heart rhythm
Lessen the chance of sudden cardiac death in people with heart disease
For people looking to build muscle, Fish Oils (EPA and DHA) supplementation has been suggested to support muscle protein synthesis and limit muscle protein degradation. This can mean less muscle breakdown and more muscle growth.
