Why they’re heart healthy: 

The unsaturated fatty acids in some fish can help to lower your cholesterol compared to the saturated fatty acids found in meat. But the main benefit comes from the omega-3’s. This type of fatty acid helps to reduce inflammation, which in some cases can lower triglycerides, irregular heartbeats, and reduce blood clotting.  One to two servings a week of fish high in omega-3 fatty acids appears to reduce the risk of heart disease, particularly sudden cardiac death.
