Fish Oil Prevents Arrhythmia

In a US study conducted on 3.000 older adults, has been shown that people with higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids in the blood are 30% less likely to suffer from chronic arrhythmia, than people with lower levels of omega-3 fatty acids. According to some data, more than 9% of Americans until they reach 80 years of age, will suffer from an irregular heartbeat that can lead to stroke. And some previous studies have suggested that people who eat fish, have a lower risk of developing atrial fibrillation.
