One of the most important organs in your body is your heart, pumping close to 2000 gallons of blood everyday, supplying oxygenated blood to the entire body for proper functioning. Therefore, if there is an issue with your heart, it means that your entire body will be in trouble.
Thanks to the hectic lifestyle that most of you lead, from your food to your sleep, everything harms your heart in some way or the other. It is not surprising that heart diseases are on a steep rise.
One such common heart disease is the dreaded heart attack.
When your heart suffers a heart attack, it is due to lack of oxygenated blood supply from the heart back to the heart, due to a clot blocking the passage. The severity of a heart attack ranges from a mild one to a severe one and so does the aftermath. While some people may take a few weeks to recover, some might take close to a couple of months to get back to normal routine.

Factors that play a major role in preventing heart attacks are:
- A proper, balanced and healthy diet
- Exercise and physical activity
Once you have suffered a heart attack, you are aware that your heart is weak and prone to other cardiac diseases, which makes it important to take preventive measures. Maintaining these three are of paramount importance, especially after surviving a heart attack.
Studies suggest that survivors of heart attack can add fish oil supplements in their routine to recover from the condition as there is an 8% lowered risk of hospitalisation due to heart conditions.
Why Fish Oil?
Fish oil is believed to be rich in Omega-3 fatty acids that are known to be healthy for your heart. Oily fish like salmon, tuna and mackerel are few of the best sources of Omega 3 fatty acids, which help in the healing of the heart from a heart attack.
Consumption of the fish mentioned above or turning towards fish oil supplements might prove healthy and accelerate the process of healing, experts say.
