– So, I think there are several benefits of consuming omega-3s. First in fish, there is a high
content of these omega-3s, which are polyunsaturated fats. And if you replace them
and substitute them for saturated fats, the risk
of heart disease goes down. So that’s one benefit. We also know in the REDUCE-IT trial, a prescription form of
a highly-concentrated eicosapentaenoic acid, or
EPA, was favorable in patients that had either existing
cardiovascular disease and high triglycerides, or had diabetes and other risk
factors for heart disease. (bright music)
