Reducing Triglycerides With
Fish Oil

Reducing triglycerides levels in your body with fish oil is an important step in minimizing your risk of having a coronary heart disease or a stroke.


What Are Triglycerides?

Triglycerides are a type of fat and they are stored in your fat cells.

Each time you eat, the calories that your body does not use right away are converted into triglycerides.

The problem arises when excess levels remain in your bloodstream. They thicken your blood. They may also contribute to thickening and hardening of your arteries.

When this happens, you are more likely to get coronary artery disease.


Get A Blood Test

Getting a blood test shows whether or not you are within the healthy range:

  • Normal - Less than 150 mg/dl(milligram per deciliter)
  • Borderline High - 150 - 199 mg/dl
  • High - 200 - 499 mg/dl
  • Very High - 500 mg/dl

How Do They Differ From Cholesterol?

They provide your body with energy while cholesterol build your cells and hormones.

Both cannot dissolve in blood and they travel throughout your body with the help of lipoproteins.


How To Lower Your Triglycerides Levels

Lifestyle change is the key.

  • Get rid of excess weight - focus on the benefits of losing weight such as, added energy and improved health
  • Reduce your calorie intake
  • Limit your carbohydrates
  • Limit your cholesterol - Avoid egg yolks and milk products
  • Avoid Trans fat - They are found in fried foods, cookies and cakes
  • Avoid alcoholic drinks
  • Exercise often - Take a brisk walk for 30 minutes a day

Have An Artery Cleanse

Aloe Vera Gel - take 20 ml or 1/4 glass 3 x a day

  • Drink aloe gel first so that body toxins that clog your small intestines will be swept away
  • It makes your small intestines more efficient in absorbing the fish oil
  • This in turn, makes the fish oil more effective in reducing triglycerides levels in your body

Arctic Sea Omega 3 fish oil - Take 1 softgel 3 x a day

  • Omega 3 fatty acids in fish oil reduce the clotting ability of platelets, thus reducing the chances of a heart attack or a stroke

Reducing triglycerides levels in your body is a must.

You should also be aware that high triglycerides levels sometimes are a sign of undiagnosed diabetes, liver or kidney disease.

It could also be a side effect of taking beta blockers, steroids, birth control pills and diuretics.

A pound of prevention is still worth more than a ton of cure.
