The physicians at the Longevity Centres of America have touted for years that omega-3 supplementation is great for improving vascular function, heart rate, blood pressure and lipid levels.  Beyond the heart, omega-3’s provide benefits to reducing some cancer risks, improving joint function and emotional well-being.  While fish has always been a traditional source of omega-3 fatty acids, it is not enough.  It is important to supplement a healthy diet with additional fish oil from a source that is natural and free of mercury
