Health Nutrition News has a new video in which they discuss triglycerides (TG), how they are important to human life, and are the main form of fat in the body. When the body has extra triglycerides, they are stored in different places, such as the hips and belly, in case they are needed later. As a result do to common dieting and food options people often have high triglyceride levels and this has been linked to a greater chance for heart disease. Especially in people with low levels of "good" (HDL) cholesterol and high levels of "bad" (LDL) cholesterol.
HealthNutritionNews.org points out that high triglyceride levels also may contribute to high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and diabetes. Healthy diet and exercise plans can lower triglyceride levels, improve cholesterol, and lower the risk of heart disease but diet and exercise alone are not always enough. It is often recommended that individuals take omega-3 supplements in addition to diet and exercise to reduce triglycerides to low risk levels.
During the video, Health Nutrition News explains the benefits of getting the proper amounts of omega-3s daily. Not only will it help lower triglycerides quickly but also provides greater eye health, increased fat burning, and greater brain and cognitive health. They note that research has shown specifically that the omega 3 fatty acid DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) has a profound effect on heart health due to its cholesterol and triglyceride lowering abilities. HealthNutritionNews.org suggests looking for a supplement that contains higher levels of DHA than EPA, which is uncommon because a high EPA supplement is cheaper to produce. Otherwise, the supplement will not be effective at lowering triglycerides into the recommended levels.
Health Nutrition News explains the triglyceride levels and that normal triglyceride levels are less than 150 milligrams per deciliter. Levels between 150 and 200 are classified as elevated risk and when levels reach above 200 milligrams per deciliter people are considered high risk for many health issues. The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends that a triglyceride level of 100 milligrams per deciliter is considered optimal and can improve people’s heart health. Additionally, high triglycerides are often the first step on the path to heart disease, metabolic syndrome, and obesity.
Taking an omega-3 supplement will not only help to lower triglycerides but also may help people lose weight. Health Nutrition News notes that dropping five to ten percent of total body weight further lowers TG levels. Moreover, eating a diet reducing saturated fat, trans fat, simple sugars, and cholesterol in can be greatly beneficial to these levels. Health Nutrition News ensures that taking steps to improve triglyceride levels, will likely improve a person’s overall health, fitness, cholesterol levels, and lower their risk for heart disease.
They have made available a free thirty four page e-book titled “The 15 Foods that Damage Your Heart” where inside it discusses the benefits of lowering high triglycerides and provides more information on omega-3 supplements that can help accomplish those goals.
