As we all know, if you wanna live better 90% of that comes from what you put into your body. Put good in, get good out as they say. Anything that has life in it is going to give you life, such as fish and fish do beautiful things for your heart that you may not know about.
If you’re worried about heart disease, eating one to two servings of fish a week could reduce your risk of dying of a heart attack. Why is this? Fish are packed full of Omega-3 that are also called “fast fats”. These fast fats shoot through the bloodstream and arteries and collide with any fat in your arteries that could be blocking the blood flow and Omega-3 breaks it down. Think of a bullet flying into a plywood wall. Soon that plywood wall will be busted open allowing air to flow freely.
For a long time, doctors had the belief that the unsaturated fats in fish are the nutrients that reduce the risk of dying of heart disease. However, more recent research suggests that other nutrients in fish and a combination of omega-3 fatty acids and other nutrients in fish may actually be responsible for the health benefits from fish.
Fish are only going to be a benefit to you if the fish are healthy. For those people who breed and raise fish at home just to eat (because you don’t really know how clean a fish would be of parasites at a restaurant), be sure they are getting the proper nutrition, such as copepods.

When it comes to a healthier heart, eating fish would normally cancel out the possible risks of exposure to contaminants such as mercury.
