  • Omega-3 Index
     "The higher the percentage of Omega-3 fatty acids in red blood cells, the less likely you are to have cardio-vascular disease".

  • Protect your heart with a fish diet
    "It's not the Japanese genes, it's the Japanese diet, which is high in Omega-3 fatty acids, that cause the Japenese to live longer and have a higher quality of life".

  • Boost Omega-3 levels with fish
    "We can do a lot in the western diet to lift the Omega-3 index. We can increase consumption of all sorts of fish and for those who do not eat fish use Omega-3 capsules. What we cannot do is increase the use of plant Omega-3 fatty acids because that does not increase the Omega-3 index".
