According to a team from Harvard’s School of Public Health, daily use of omega-3 fish oil supplements may help you bolster your heart health. The team reviewed data from 13 different studies and found that consuming about 840 milligrams of omega-3 fish oil per day was linked to a lower overall risk of dying from heart disease.
In addition to taking omega-3 fish oil capsules daily, the team recommends focusing on living a healthy lifestyle to keep heart disease at bay. A healthy lifestyle includes maintaining a healthy weight, getting enough exercise, avoiding tobacco and alcohol consumption, and eating a well-balanced diet.
