The risk of cardiovascular disease is closely associated with lifestyle and diet. Both cholesterol level and lipid profile are affected by the fatty acid composition in the blood. High cholesterol levels and an unfavorable composition of lipids will increase the risk of atherosclerosis and infarcts. In addition, it is also possible that inflammation will affect the development of atherosclerotic plaque. Other important risk factors are smoking, high blood pressure, the blood’s ability to form blood clots, and obesity. Except for smoking, the composition of the diet can affect these risk factors.
Fish oil contains the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, which contribute to lowering fats in the blood, reduce blood pressure, and counteract ventricular fibrillation. Large amounts of omega-3 fatty acids can also have a blood-thinning effect. Omega-3 can therefore help reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases, which is the disease group that causes the most premature deaths and often long-term health problems and functional impairments.
Nutrifriend is rich in oxidation-protected EPA and DHA fatty acids and is beneficial for patients with cardiovascular diseases:
- EPA and DHA have been shown to be capable of reducing the risk of heart attack and death in cardiac patients
- EPA and DHA have been shown to have a beneficial effect associated with improved cardiac health in both healthy and cardiac patients
- EPA and DHA are good for the blood lipids
