Oily fishes, such as pilchards, trout and crab, are rich in omega-3 essential fatty acids.
Blood Pressure UK add: “[These fishes] may help reduce blood pressure, reduce the tendency of blood to clot, regulate the rhythm of your heart beat and reduce triglyceride levels.”
Heart UK clarify that triglycerides are another type of blood fat that enter the blood stream after a meal.
They are packaged into lipoproteins along with cholesterol, and can be used as energy or stored for later.
