Oily fish may protect the heart and the entire cardiovascular system.
Scientists have found that two servings of fatty fish per week can reduce the risk of stroke, a claim that fish supplements do not have such good effect.
British scientists have observed the health of 800,000 people in the area of 15 countries. During the research 34 817 people suffered a stroke. The researchers took into account other lifestyle habits such as smoking, exercise and diet.
Participants who ate oily fish two times a week, had a 6% lower risk of stroke, while participants who took fish supplements have not had a reduced risk of stroke.
Previous studies have shown that fatty fish may protect the heart and the entire cardiovascular system.
Experts recommend that every person should eat two servings of fatty fish a week 140g, the best choices are salmon, sardines, herring and mackerel.
From previous studies we know that the consumption of fish is excellent for overall health of the body and this study shows that fatty fish may protect the brain health.
Although the risk reduction of 6% may not seem large, but it is significant and can not be ignored. The risk even more if you can reduce introduce daily exercise and a healthy and balanced diet.
