Heart Attack? You Need to Eat MORE of This Food!
There are plenty of steps you can take to avoid having a heart attack.
Staying a healthy weight and controlling your blood pressure are two of the biggest.
But there’s another step you can take to help protect yourself if you ever do have a heart attack.
It can lower your risk of complications—and reduce your risk of dying.
Fortunately, it’s a simple step that I’m already doing multiple times a week.
In a study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, researchers used data from 950 patients admitted to the hospital after having a heart attack.
All these individuals had their blood levels of omega-3s measured when they were admitted to the hospital. This measurement is an accurate indication of how much omega-3 fats the individuals ate in the weeks leading up to the heart attack.
The researchers then tracked these individuals for three years after the heart attack.
They found that people who had higher blood levels of omega-3s at the time of their heart attack had a lower risk of complications—and a lower risk of dying.
This protection came from both animal and plant sources of omega-3s.
ALA is an omega-3 found in foods like walnuts and soybeans. It’s not as well-studied as EPA, but it was clear that having higher levels of ALA in particular was associated with a reduced risk of death.
And ultimately, the synergistic actions of both EPA and ALA seems to have the greatest benefit—indicating the importance of all types of omega-3s from all types of sources.
Even if you’re not worried about having a heart attack, there are plenty of great reasons to eat more omega-3s.
Research has shown that it reduces your risk of everything from depression to macular degeneration to metabolic syndrome to autoimmune diseases—all while offering a major boost to your brain health.
I’ve been eating fish multiple times a week for years.
It’s hands down the best way to get all the omega-3s you’ll need—whether you’re at risk of having a heart attack or not.

Two-for-one deals are great when you’re dealing with sales… but they’re not so great when you’re dealing with diseases. Psoriatic arthritis is like a two-for-one disease.
