Eating three grams of omega-3 fatty acids a day can lower blood pressure
One study found that eating three grams of omega-3 fatty acids a day can lower blood pressure, but experts have called for more research.
According to a report published in the American Heart Association (AHA) Journal, eating three grams of omega-3 daily is also very beneficial.
The omega-3 fatty acids docosa are found in hexanic acid (DHA) and Icosipentonic acid (EPA) in fatty fish such as salmon, tuna, sardines and oysters. ۔
Some experiments have shown that one of the many benefits of fatty acids is the reduction of blood pressure, but the exact amount of fatty acids was known and was being considered. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) may then benefit from 1.1 to 1.6 grams of omega-3 fatty acids per day, depending on gender and age.
Now, Professor Shanzai Lai of Macau University in China and his colleagues say that if adults consume three grams of this type of fatty acid a day, it has a significant effect on blood pressure and is largely controlled. In this regard, 17 studies from 1987 to 2020 have been reviewed.
The study looked at the effects of omega-3 fatty acids (DHA and EPA) on 5,000 healthy people over the age of 18. Everyone was suffering from high blood pressure and cholesterol. Participants were divided into two groups, one was fed fatty acids for ten weeks while the other group was not given any supplements.
People who ate 2 to 3 grams of DHA and EPA, a fatty acid, now had an average blood pressure drop of 2 mm. This dose was then given to patients with high blood pressure, who had an average deficiency of 4.5 mmHg (mercury).
The benefits of omega-3 fatty acids have also been shown in patients with high blood pressure over the age of 45. Experts say that if you can’t eat fish then take fatty acid supplements and especially algae supplements can be useful.
On the other hand, omega-3 fatty acids have the potential to reduce heart disease and cholesterol.
