Baked, Broiled Fish (not Fried) for Heart Protection

separator Experts have been saying for years that fish high in omega-3 fatty acids can protect you from developing heart disease. The American Heart Association even recommends that you eat two or more servings of fish per week.

But it’s important to know that fish that’s usually served fried is not typically the type of fish that’s high in omega-3 fatty acids. In an examination of the ultrasound images of 5,000 older Americans, people who regularly ate fried fish and fish sandwiches showed signs of heart disease, while people who ate broiled or baked fish had

  • Lower blood pressure
  • Lower heart rate
  • Better flow of blood to the heart.

Additionally, those who ate fried fish and fish sandwiches had very little evidence of omega-3 fatty acids in their blood.
